  • JCARR Joyfully Welcomes New Syrian Family

    On Thursday, Jan. 26, JCARR welcomed a new refugee family from Syria.

    Ezra Schwartz thought about staying home from his volunteer work as part of his gap-year program in Israel on the morning of Nov. 19, 2015. He was tired, his grandfather, Mark Schwartz said, but in the end he ran out to the van. He was shot and killed when a terrorist opened fire on a crowded intersection of cars stuck in traffic that afternoon.
