Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce Establishes Toy Distribution Center to Bring Smiles to Children in communities under fire

The recent conflict between Israel and Hamas has resulted in devastating consequences for the people, especially the innocent children caught in the crossfire. With thousands of children hospitalized and orphaned, there is a severe need for something to bring a glimmer of joy to their lives and distract them from the horrors they have witnessed. In response to this need, the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with its members in the toy industry, their partners, and an amazing team in Israel to establish a distribution center and dedicated teams to bring toys to children in the areas under fire.
 
The Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce has always been committed to making a positive impact in communities and leveraging commerce relations as well as influencing policy and Building bridges between communities. With the escalation of violence in Israel, the Chamber saw the need to extend its helping hand in a much-needed way. By providing children with toys, aimed to provide a sense of normalcy and comfort amidst the chaos and fear especially while hiding in Bomb Shelters all day.
 
The distribution center established by the Chamber became the hub for the chamber and its partners Purchasing and organizing toys to distribute. 
 
The chambers incredible team in Israel is undertaking the courageous step of braving the dangerous areas under fire from Hamas missiles to deliver these toys directly to the children. No words can describe their dedication and we are extremely proud to have such a team on the ground.
 
Furthermore, the toys were not only distributed to children in the affected areas but equally so to wounded and orphaned children in hospitals throughout Israel. These children are alone in hospitals, filled with hundreds who had either been injured or lost their families and are in desperate need of something to bring joy and comfort.
