Helping Ohad Lipnick

Last week, Israel was engulfed in forest fires that burnt down trees throughout the Jewish state. But it wasn’t just nature that was destroyed. Ohad Lipnick, an engineer in the Samarian town of Shavei Shomron (Return to Samaria), lost his factory, which he had no insurance on.

Devastating tragedies are nothing new to Ohad. That’s because only a year and a half ago, Ohad was driving back home with his wife and five children on Road 557. When suddenly, an Arab driver lost control of his car after excessive speeding and entered the opposite lane, blocking the path of the Lipnicks’ vehicle. The two vehicles crashed head-on.

His 11-year-old daughter Ori z”l died along with his 8-year-old son Ori z”l. His wife, Shirley was seriously injured and was in a coma for two weeks until she regained consciousness. Shirley suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung. She also suffered a stroke following the accident and has is still not fully functional.

Ohad is so strong and determined to rebuild his life. His strength is almost unfathomable to us! The Israel365 Charity Fund’s heart went out to Ohad and his family and are moved to help him and provide them comfort. 

Israel365 is going to help Ohad get a new welding machine. This piece of equipment is vital for Ohad to get his business back up and running. 

Thank you to the donors of Israel365 who responded to the emergency campaign to help comfort the people of Israel.
