ACTION: Learn more about the events in Syria and consider donating to a humanitarian aid organization.

A chemical weapons attack by Syria’s government and the ensuing U.S. missile strike on an airbase in Syria are arguably the biggest humanitarian issue facing us today. Many questions may have arisen in your mind about how to help and whether our country is responding appropriately.

Why help Syria?

"The Syrian chemical weapons attack in Idlib this week has prompted an outcry from rabbis and rabbinical groups against the slaughter in the country calling for action to help alleviate the plight of Syrians caught up in the conflict." http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Rabbis-call-for-action-assistance-to-Syrians-caught-up-in-civil-war-486205
