Hear Their Story: Featuring Survivors of the October 7th Massacre

Hear Their Story: Featuring Survivors of the October 7th Massacre

Thursday, February 1st at 7:00 p.m. at the Wosk Auditorium in the JCC

Carmi Tint, originally from White Rock, British Columbia, and Eyal Tarchitzky are members of Dror Israel, a grassroots educational organization, and live in Dror’s educators’ community in Sderot, less than two kilometers from the Gaza Strip.

On October 7th, Carmi was alone with their then seven-month-old daughter for close to 48 hours in their safe room while Hamas terrorists brutally murdered residents outside their building.

Carmi, Eyal and their daughter, together with other Dror Israel educators and thousands of other Sderot residents, have been living in a hotel by the Dead Sea for the past three months.

As soon as the war broke out, Dror began running day cares, schools, and afternoon activities at over 50 evacuee centers for tens of thousands of traumatized children displaced from their homes for an indefinite period of time.

Carmi and Eyal will share their personal story and their work in establishing hotel leadership committees for Sderot residents as well as Dror’s emotional-educational first aid programming for children and teenagers.

Dror’s emergency relief focuses on building community resilience as the evacuees themselves are empowered to take on responsibility during this chaotic time.
