"Sabra" is the Hebrew word for the prickly pear cactus,
but more commonly refers to native-born Israelis, known
for their resilience.
Since November of 2000, that resilience has been cruelly
tested. More than 14,500 acts of terror have claimed the
lives of over 100 Israelis. Many thousands have been left
maimed, orphaned, widowed. Israel's once-booming economy
has all but collapsed. One out of every five families in
Israel now lives in poverty.
Every day in Israel, life goes on. But it costs.
Those who are most vulnerable, those who struggle to
fend for themselves — victims of terror, families without
breadwinners, the frail, immigrants who have arrived
with nothing — they need all the support we can give.
