In recent weeks, Israelis have continued to travel over the world, helping others. After a horrible plane crash in Thailand, Israelis were among the first to send medical teams to help the injured and identify the dead. It's a sad fact that Israelis have much experience with dealing with this sad task and a wonderful testimony to the heart and soul of Israelis that we are willing to offer these services to others. Today's post has to do with yet another story of Israel reaching out to help.
