OneFamily to Fly 85 Orphaned Victims of Terrorism to Romania for a Week-Long Retreat

In an on-going effort to provide invigorating therapeutic retreats to victims of terrorism and war, OneFamily will be sending 85 people on a week-long excursion to Romania this week.
OneFamily is the premier organization in Israel that rehabilitates, reintegrates and rebuilds the lives of thousands of victims of terror attacks and war of all ages (Jews, Christians & Druze Arabs) through one-of-a-kind programs, 365 days a year.
This particular group is comprised of the orphaned sons and daughters of terror victims, where BOTH of their parents were murdered. In recent years, the orphans have married and rebuilt their devastated families through the births of their own children. One example is the Gavish family. Menashe and Avigdor Gavish, whose parents, David and Rachel Gavish, were murdered in their home along with their son Avraham by Palestinian terrorists on March 28, 2002, will be participating in the trip. OneFamily has also provided on-going financial support to all of the Gavish orphans-Menashe, Avigdor, Yeshurun, Tzofia, Leah and Assaf since their parents deaths over a decade ago.
During the course of their trip, the OneFamily group will visit some of Romania’s most popular
attractions, including the city of Brasov, where a garden has been named after the late Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin, the renowned Peles Castle in Sinaia and Bucharest’s Choral synagogue.
“During the course of the year, OneFamily arranges several trips abroad for many victims of terrorism and war so they can get-away from the sad memories back home and refresh their bodies and souls, spending quality time with their families,” Chantal Belzberg, OneFamily’s CEO, revealed.
