Tragedy for Houston Jewish community

We're back from Israel, and more about that later, but first - devastating news rocked the Houston community over the July 4th weekend...

Houstonians Josh and Robin Berry and their kids were traveling back from Colorado when they were hit head-on by an oncoming vehicle, close to midnight.  The parents were instantly killed and the three children were injured, two seriously.  The children are in Lubbock right now and should be able to travel back to Houston this week to continue their treatments.

The Jewish Herald-Voice has ongoing coverage of the efforts to help the family and to support the children.  Beth Yeshurun has set up a fund for donations to help with expenses which you can access here (select Perlo-Berry Family Fund to designate your donation).

Such a tragedy is hard for any community, but a community is what helps us cope.  All of our prayers and efforts will build foundational support so that the Berry family can go on and live the values the parents taught the children.
