Help the Sumarin Family Go to Israel`s Supreme Court
This Wednesday, July 15th, let`s raise the whole $40,000 USD the family needs to bring their case to Israel`s Supreme Court.

We can do this. On Wed, July 15th, our legal aid fund for the Sumarin`s will be competing against 400 other projects to win a $10K Bonus.


Please, set your alarm for 9am EDT, Wednesday, July 15th. Ask them to click this link on Wednesday to donate to `Help the Sumarin Family Go to Israel`s Supreme Court.`


Here`s the link to share:
https://globalgiving.org/projects/jerusalem-legal-aid

to donate in the Global Giving Bonus Day competition. Please ask them to give generously to boost the project called `Help the Sumarin Family Go to Israel`s Supreme Court.`

For the Sumarin Family, there`s no turning back. $40K will just cover their lawyer and court fees. If the Supreme Court denies their request, the family must pay $23,000 in fines per the lower court that ruled in favor of the Jewish National Fund - and $40,000 in eviction fees for forcible removal from their home. If they win, the returned court fees & fines will seed a revolving grant-making fund for other Jerusalem cases to be managed by Torat Tzedek, which is an NGO registered in Israel.


At the start of Wednesday`s competition, donations from $100 to $1000 will be matched up to 50% by GlobalGiving. The project with most donations by 8:59PM EDT will win a $10,000 bonus - so let`s win.

When Israel`s Supreme Court hears this case, it will put the Absentee Property Law on trial for all to see. It they win, the Sumarin family will stay in their home and they will open a door for justice and democracy in Israel.

Thank you for your help,

Sincerely,




Donna Baranski-Walker
Founder and Executive Director, Rebuilding Alliance
