Colel Chabad hosted a free pop-up “shop” of new clothing in one of the hotels. This “shop” was open to all of the survivors who lost everything in the Hamas attacks. People were able to come and shop in a dignified way. They got to choose which clothing they wanted and leave with it in a brand-new shopping bag for free. This isn’t just about providing someone with clothing, it’s about maintaining their dignity as well.
