Parenting a lone soldier is a unique experience and hard to describe. So unique, that when typing “parent of lone soldier” into Google, Israel is the only nation that shows up. Which means that the only other people in the world that understand what you are going through are other parents of lone soldiers in the IDF.

The following document provides helpful tips to help you cope as a parent, brought to you by Ohel.

Local Community Emergency Teams (CETs) work closely with rescue forces. During interventions, these teams are exposed, in real time, to the difficult sights and situations that individual victims, families, and communities are experiencing. CETs serve with a high level of dedication, social responsibility, and humanitarianism.
These helpers are vulnerable to situations outside their control and are at risk for various types of danger. The impacts range across a spectrum from secondary traumatic stress syndrome (the costs they pay), to posttraumatic growth (the “benefits”).
The scientific literature we reviewed emphasized the need to appoint a team member to support the rescue workers in the field through prompt, preventive interventions. It is important for a designated person to provide responses to the teams’ needs, and strive to reduce risks, burnout, and secondary traumatization among the helpers.
In light of this need, the Ministry of Social Affairs has decided to add a new position to the Community Emergency Teams: a CET supporter.

Current events highlight the necessity of the “all-hazards, whole-community” approach: a comprehensive effort where plans and
efforts address the totality of potential threats – from an attack to a natural disaster, whether a flood or a pandemic.
With respect to the current novel coronavirus (COVID-19), an increasing number of organizations are moving to virtual environments,
to include teleworking and Work From Home (WFH) options. This has spurred questions and concerns related to cyber safety as
well as security.

The purpose of ”Alma and the Lockdown Drill” is to explain to young students why we have security at their schools in a simple way, and to explain the procedures of a lockdown. Every school is unique, but the principles of a lockdown are universal. Lockdown drills are designed to allow students and teachers to practice how to barricade themselves inside a classroom. By practicing a lockdown, the students and teachers prepare themselves, so that they would be protected if they were to face an external threat.

The book contains work material and questions that help facilitate a discussion about lockdown procedures which are specific to your school. There are guidelines, both to generate discussion with students and to direct the teacher in how to conduct the drills. Before using the book and its materials, it is important that you know the school’s lockdown procedures. If your school does not have procedures yet, we recommend that you discuss the topic with management and develop your own approach.

Providing emotional support via the telephone during emergency situations has become a well-known and accepted method for helping people. In the past, the telephone was seen as an alienating means of communication. Today, however, most people are intimately attached to their smartphones (which are actually mobile personal computers) and can use them to access many services. Asking for assistance via telephone has become legitimate, and is even more common than face-to-face meetings.
This widespread use of mobile phones can be seen as representing the physical and psychological distance between people in the reality of the twenty-first century. At the same time, mobile phones can bring people together during emergencies and in their aftermath, when security and stability have been severely undermined. Phones can also be used to provide assistance to people who were not directly harmed, and facilitate their efforts to restore a sense of equilibrium. Research has proven that using phones to help people in need is effective, simple, and economical in terms of time and emotional energy.
Israeli citizens have used the Ministry of Welfare’s Open Line service frequently, and it has received positive feedback. In the meantime, the threats of war and terrorism continue. This has led to the conclusion that the Open Line should become an official and professionalized service.

Drug and alcohol abuse can make depression and mental illness worse, and depression can increase the risk factor for addiction. The reverse is also true, in that addiction can raise the odds for depression.
When addiction and depression are present in the same person at the same time, these disorders are said to be comorbid, or co-occurring. Depression and addiction commonly co-occur, and each condition can complicate the other.
Depression and addiction are complexly intertwined, requiring comprehensive dual diagnosis treatment programs for optimal support. Treatment aims to manage both conditions at the same time, often using both medications and therapies together.

Crisis and disaster events can evoke overwhelming emotions: anxiety, anger, uncertainty, helplessness, and a sense of threat to our basic safety and security. In addition, for some the events may provoke earlier traumatic memories from a similar situation and/or intensify preexisting emotional difficulties. Crisis events undermine the sense that we have control over our lives, harm social resilience, and raise levels of anxiety and emotional distress among all of us: children, youth, and adults alike. At times, the emotional overload can paralyze us, leading us to close ourselves off and avoid contact with others. However, talking about our most difficult fears and disturbing thoughts can bring a great sense of relief during times of emotional distress.

Incidents of antisemitism can occur at unexpected moments and often when we least anticipate them. To experience hostility and discrimination from others because of religion, race, and/or ethnicity is traumatic for adults and children alike, and fear can make it hard to speak up and stand up for oneself. It’s a difficult topic to discuss, and for many of us, navigating this terrain feels daunting and explosive. How do we speak, whether in person or via social media, to family members, close friends, neighbors, acquaintances, and, most importantly, our children about such an ugly and painful subject? What is required for each of us to feel confident to enter this conversation and feel as if we are on sturdy ground?

The current pandemic presents us all with a unique challenge. Society at large is facing a crisis that we did
not prepare for and is fraught with many challenges both personal and public. The policy of physical
distancing is causing feelings of abject loneliness amongst many elderly citizens exacerbated by the
cancelling of all their social clubs and leisure activities. As volunteers you have an opportunity to express
caring, concern and to convey the important message that they “are not alone.” In addition, your meeting
is an occasion to show respect and appreciation for the elderly, curiosity and interest in their personal
history and experiences as well as to share your own experiences, outlook and pursuits.

The COVID-19 outbreak introduced to the modern world a pandemic not seen on thisscale for approximately a century. The health struggle -learning about the virus, how to reduce its morbidity and how to treat those who contracted it -was compounded by other crises the pandemiccreated: economic, occupational and social welfare related. Both on a personal and societal level, the new situation demanded that we all step out of our comfort zones, make adjustments to our daily lives, and learn new concepts and tools: from exponential growth to social distancing, from Zoom to the Teams, Meet and Hangout apps.

In September 2019, the Ministry of Strategic Affairs published a report, “Behind the
Mask,” which demonstrated the connection between antisemitism and the Boycott
Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement and its delegitimacy campaign against the
State of Israel. The report included over 80 examples of leading BDS activists
disseminating antisemitic content, consistent with the International Holocaust
Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) working definition of antisemitism.
Following the report, and in the wake of the coronavirus crisis, the Ministry has been
monitoring antisemitism and efforts to delegitimize Israel with the linking of the State
of Israel and Jews to the coronavirus. The Ministry and other organizations focused on
combatting hate speech found multiple cases of BDS-supporting organizations and
senior government and quasi-governmental officials propagating antisemitic
conspiracies and libels.
