Thank International Community For Helping Fight Fire in the Galilee

The Galilee fire ultimately claimed 42 lives, destroyed communities and consumed more than 4 million trees across 10,000 acres, but without help from Australia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Jordan, Romania, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States it could have been much worse.

Even as we mourn this tragedy, we must take the time to thank the countries that helped. So often we express our concern that Israel is isolated and delegitimized. Now, however, we have an opportunity to recognize those who made a difference. Please take the time now to say thank you to the heroes who helped Israel during this difficult time.
