Follow Us On




Over the last week, I have been made aware of an organization called NATAL--Israel Trauma Center for Victims of Terror and War.  As part of its work, NATAL provides much needed treatment to children and families suffering from the trauma of living with rocket attacks.  If left untreated, trauma can have devastating effects on children's futures, and ripple effects into the well-being of family, peers, communities, and ultimately, society as a whole.

Perhaps NATAL's work can be best summed up in this statement by NATAL's Founder and Chairperson, Judith Yovel Recanati: "Our treatment of children is not a luxury. It is a duty if we want our society to be healthy, functioning and hopeful."
