(From Chaya Witkin:)


There is another prisoner (Amnon Cohen) in Shikma. A while ago, police found an unregistered gun in his home, and he had been judged by the court with "intent to kill Arabs" (sound familiar?!) - sentence: 1-and-a-half yrs jail. At the moment he is to spend another 5 months in prison, and is now waiting for an appeal in 2 weeks (Be'er Sheva Courthouse, 27.12.06, 09:00). His wife and 3 small children need help; for instance, she can't afford 1,800 shekels/month (about $430/mo.) for religious nursery school for their 2 smallest, who are at home with her so she can't go to work. They are no longer living in their own place, but with the in-laws, a precarious situation. If you can help, please send a check to Amnon's wife Moran:

Moran Cohen, 11 Adam Yekutiel Street, Kiryat Malachi, ISRAEL

If you are in Israel, and you would like to donate to Amnon Cohen's "canteen" (prison account) via the Israeli Post Office, his number is 4651772.

Be well,
