Baltimore, MD - Nov. 26, 2023 - From their homes, mainly in the US, thousands of young children have joined the Tehillim Army to support the soldiers. Led by Morah Tziri Preis from Baltimore, the Inkredible Kids podcast on November 23rd, sponsored by the Wasserman family, featured a special guest with an inspiring story.
In the IDF reserves, Major Dr. Eitan Turgeman (38) was called up early in Operation Iron Swords and suffered serious injuries. He was evacuated by helicopter to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, where he had worked as a dentist before the war. Severely injured, he was admitted with a broken hand, two broken vertebrae in his back, a facial injury, and shrapnel in both legs.
The timing couldn’t have been better for participants from all over the world from this year...

Baltimore, MD - Nov. 27, 2023 - I first heard of Khal Chassidim about two years ago. I had been living in Baltimore all my life, and I knew there was a Chassidishe Kollel group of families that had moved in the Pinkney area of town, but that's about it. I saw some chassidim at Seven Mile every once in a while, but that was pretty much the extent of my exposure.
The time came that I needed a preschool for my 3 year old twins (one of whom needed a specific style of learning). A few people told me some very positive things about Khal Chassidim, so I decided to do some research and find out more. Originally, we were just looking into the preschool, which is run by the amazing Mrs. Shoshana Sofer. My brothers had been in the TI preschool, under the capable care of Mrs. Sofer&r...

A senior Biden Administration official stated during a background press call on the humanitarian situation in Gaza that the administration supports Israel's goal of eliminating the Hamas terrorist organization as a threat and ruling power in Gaza, even as it pushes for maximum restraint.
"To reiterate what you’ve already heard from the President, from other senior officials of the government: We want the objectives of this campaign — the elimination of Hamas as a governing, as a threatening force in Gaza and the threat to Israel. And — but how the campaign is conducted, particularly in the south is exceedingly important, because of the fragile situation with this very significant internal displacement already occurred on the ground," the official stated.
Staff Sergeant Tomer Yaakov Ahimas, Sergeant Kiril Brodski and Sergeant Shaked Dahan were killed on October 7th. Hamas announced that it is holding their bodies.
Sigalit, mother of Shaked Dahan, who was killed on October 7th, the day of Hamas’ heinous attack on southern Israel, posted an emotional and painful message to her social network, "I salute you, my beloved and dear Shaked. I fought all my life to take care of you and raise you with love, excellent education, values, a proper environment. I did for you what I had to as a mother.”
“I was able to protect you and safeguard you in many situations. You have been taken from me forever. They took you and did not care to return you. Not even your body. This does not respect you, does not respect your family and certainl...
The TA alumni of Eretz Yisroel recently experienced a Shabbos for the ages. Our beloved Menahel, Rabbi Yisrael Lefkowitz, came to the Eretz Yisrael to spend the Shabbos night meal with the Oylam, 48 Talmidim, in the Litov Hotel in Geula, Yerushalayim.
The occasion kicked off with a wonderful ambiance of achdus and exhilaration for what was in store. Bochurim were seen in every corner of the well-set dining room smiling and laughing with friends. We davened Mincha, and had an unreal ‘Kabbolos Shabos’ lead by TA’s esteemed cantor - Avrumi Portnoy (Mercaz). The meal then commenced with inspirational Divrei Torah from Rabbi Lefkowitz, as well as from the “alte’ buchrim” – Gavi Pachino (Senters) & Dovid Blum (Toras ChHaim). The boys would peri...
On Sunday evening, United Hatzalah volunteers from the Kfar Kasem-Kfar Bara-Jaljulia branch conducted a comprehensive joint drill in collaboration with the IDF Home Front Command and local security forces. The exercise, held in the town of Kfar Kasem, was designed to simulate a missile attack, aiming to enhance the preparedness of both citizens and security personnel to effectively respond to emergency situations tailored to the unique challenges of the city and the war with Hamas.
The multifaceted drill incorporated a variety of scenarios to ensure a thorough and realistic training experience. The volunteers were divided into five teams and received four reports of rocket hits, including some that turned out to be incorrect or inaccurate. One part of the simulated drill focused on ...

Baltimore, MD - Nov. 28, 2023 - Baltimore City School administrators confirm a gun was discovered inside a student's backpack at the Creative City Charter School in Park Heights.
According to police, a staff member received an anonymous tip and discovered the gun during a search of the student's backpack.
Sources say the student is 7-years old.

Officials at Soroka Medical Center in Beer Sheva report dramatic improvement in the condition of freed hostage Alma Avraham.
“She is conscious, breathing on her own and does not need the same level of support she needed upon her arrival. She is responding well to the treatment given to her and is recovering,” the hospital stated.
The 84 year-old Avraham was airlifted directly to Soroka after Hamas released her on Sunday after spending more than 50 days in captivity without medicine for pre-existing conditions.
