“I’m Gabriel Sassoon

I’m the one my family perished in the fire

My wife and daughter survived

Everything got burnt up in the fire

My pasport, I had an Israeli passport and I had a green card..

So Amudim helped me make these arrangements — they opened up the Israeli embassy for me on Sunday morning to issue me a new passport so that I’ll be able to fly right after the funeral..

If not for Amudim I wouldnt have been able to have the funeral that I wanted in Eretz Yisrael. I think I would just have to bury my kids here — which I really didn’t want, I want(ed) them to go back to Eretz Yisrael, it was very important to me, so I’m happy that at least they’re in the right resting place. It’s a comfort, it’s a big chesed.”
