Shalom! I'm married with a young child. Recently, I was forced to close a business partnership and now I'm desperate need of money to cover every day expenses. I'm exhausted nearly every resource available and I'm running out of options. I'm not asking for donation, I'm asking for work. I can do anything: drive, cook (I went to culinary school), .... whatever! Please, if you have anything that most to be done kindly let me know. My email is: email@example.com

Sunday, January 14, 2018, at the Knesset, dozens of grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the original signers of Israel’s Declaration of Independence (Megilat Ha-Atzmaut) gathered to photograph a reconstruction of that historic event.
The signing kicks off preparations for the first Israeli Congress on Judaism and Democracy, to take place on February in association with the Center for Jewish and Democratic Law at Bar-Ilan University.
Congress Founder and Chairman Mr. Haim Tiab: “The Declaration of Independence serves as a shining example of the crucial balance between Judaism and democracy, emphasizing the dual role of Israel in offering a home to Jews from around the world, while also retaining a democratically-elected government and full equality of social and political rights to all its citizens”. Participants at the Knesset event signed and read key passages from the Declaration of Independence, underscoring their significance for the modern era.
For more details, please contact Michal Marmary, International Media Coordinator at Michal@fpci.co.il +972-54-6610602 or +972-8-9364424.
