OU Israel Chizuk During Our Time of Crisis

OU Israel joins Klal Yisrael in davening for the welfare of our brave Chayalim, those injured and in captivity, and all of our brothers and sisters. We send our deepest heartfelt condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones in this terrible war. We want to take this opportunity to let you know that we are here for each and every one of you and your families. We often speak of the “OU Israel family.” We will do our best to stand by you and your families and offer our support to help you during this challenging time and its aftermath.

In accordance with security regulations, the OU Israel Center will remain closed to the public for the week ahead. No regular shiurim or programs will take place.

We will however be organizing two daily chizuk Zoom sessions. These daily opportunities to come together virtually will feature words of chizuk and perspective from OU Israel Faculty members as well as the opportunity to recite tehilim together virtually.
