Israeli Businessman Aims to Save Syrian Community Shul After Rescuing Last Jews From Syria


The president of the Amaliah humanitarian organization, Moti Kahana, is conducting an emergency campaign to save the last remnants of the Jewish community of Aleppo in war-torn northern Syria.

In particular, Kahana and his organization are engaged in an effort to preserve the central shul of Aleppo as well as its Sfirei Torah and sifrei kodesh.

“We need to act very quickly,” Moti Kahana told Tazpit Press Service (TPS). “We need approximately $100,000, some of which I will contribute myself. I gave over $2.2 million in 2015, but, unfortunately, it’s too much for me take on alone.”
