Group sets up English-language hotline

Magen, an Israeli NGO, has set up a War-Time Civilian Support Line to help provide English speakers in the country with information about the current situation.

“Whereas native Israelis in these situations are familiar with the situation and challenges of war, know where to turn for support, and are comfortable sharing their feelings and concerns in Hebrew,” the group says in a statement, “immigrants often are not in that position.”

Teaming up with other Israeli counseling services, Magen’s English support line has already provided support and information to many English speakers in Israel “in a calming and effective fashion.”
