Chabad Terror Victims Project distributed IPads to wounded IDF soldiers Tuesday.
Rabbi David Eliezrie of Congregation Beth Meir HaCohen of North Orange County, California organized a campaign to raise money for the IPads. He was joined with CTVP and Professor Yehuda Adler, Chairman of the Sheba/Tel Hashomer Hospital, to deliver the IPads.
The IPADs will allow soldiers to stay in touch with family and friends, and stay connected in other ways, helping them through oftentimes long and painful hospitalizations and rehabilitation.
CTVP volunteers have been visiting civilians in bomb shelters and soldiers on the front lines since the start of the conflict. “We’ve been trying to entertain the children,” who are traumatized by the shelling from Gaza, said Rabbi Yossi Swerdlov, Director of CTVP.
“We have been on the front lines bringing soldiers packages of food, warm socks and undergarments, shampoo, deodorant and other essentials to keep them as comfortable as possible.”
