Responding to the Fire in Israel

A number of people have asked how to respond to the fire which claimed the lives of over 40 people, caused over 20,000 people to be evacuated from their homes, and destroyed over 5 million trees on roughly 12,500 acres of forest.  This was the greatest non-military disaster in the history of Israel.  Here are three good organizations through which we can contribute to the recovery from this tragedy.
