We are a group of German Jews who want to send a ship with not only daily necessities but also musical instruments to Gaza. We are acquiring a ship, loading it up in Germany, and then picking up passengers (Jewish and non-Jewish, German and non-German) at a Mediterranean port.
Among the goods to be shipped will be urgent necessities like medicines, baby food, blankets, children’s clothes, and school supplies; art supplies and musical instruments will be also included. We believe that reconstruction needs not just cement — we appeal to our politicians so Gaza can import urgently needed building materials! — but also food for the soul. Our musical instruments will help contribute to this.
Our schools can also make a very significant contribution. Children in Gaza are prevented from studying due to lack of materials. That is why we are looking for schools to donate school supplies. Later perhaps we can work on building twin schools or classes.
