In anticipation of the High Holidays, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Succot, Nachum welcomed Liora Tedgi to JM in the AM on behalf of Ohr Meir & Bracha, “The Terror Victims Support Center,” to discuss the organization and bringing a sweet new year to our brothers and sisters in Israel who have been victims of terror attacks.
“Ohr Meir & Bracha was founded in 2002 by Liora Tedgi, a mother of 10 who was injured a number of years ago in a car bomb attack in Jerusalem. Liora set up the organization to respond to the unmet, unrecognized needs of victims of terror and their families. Terror attacks destroy the lives not only of those who perish but also of those who survive. There are hundreds of victims of terror who “fall between the cracks” of the Israeli government’s aid initiatives. They do not receive help because their injuries are deemed insufficient to be recognized as medical disabilities, or because they are still in the process of being assessed for disability (which can take two or more years).”
