ZAKA REPORTS ON HAITIAN RELIEF EFFORTS
 

According to one report, head of the ZAKA mission, Mati Goldstein said: "With all the hell going on outside, even when things get bad, Judaism says we must take a deep breath and go on to save more people.

We did everything to save lives, despite Shabbat. People asked, 'Why are you here? There are no Jews here', but we are here because the Torah orders us to save lives."
 
At one point, when things were very grim, Goldstein reported that one mission member started to sing, Heveinu Shalom Aleichem (We bring peace to you.)  "I had tears in my eyes," he said.
 
The ZAKA mission will be staying in Haiti a couple more days, even though beyond a certain point, it is highly unlikely that anyone else will be found alive under the rubble.
 
What is exceedingly important to the mission is making their Israeli identity very clear. And so, in this regard, you can help Israel by sharing this broadly and letting the world know what we are all about. Kiddush HaShem: a blessing on G-d's name.
