From the children of OneFamily to the community of Newtown:
Dear Parents, Siblings, and Children of Newton,
We are children victims of terror. Each one of us lost a father, mother, brother or sister in mass terror attacks in the last decade. There are thousands of us, in Israel.
Our hearts ache knowing that you are now a part of our club in life.
We know your pain, the anguish you are feeling, and the shock that continues to overwhelm you.

Osher Twito, to visit America
Osher just received the most amazing Bar Mitzvah present from OneFamily. Four years ago, 8 year old Osher was injured by a Kassam Rocket on his way to buy a birthday present for his father in Sderot. He suffered severe internal and external injuries that resulted an amputation of his left leg. Later this month, Osher will fullfill his dream of traveling to the United States with the OneFamily Fund.
Osher met President Obama during his 2008 presidental campaign trip to Israel and was promised a reunion meeting at the White House if Obama was elected. We are still waiting for confirmation on the meeting.
