YCT San Diego Relief Mission

...מִי יָגֿוּר לָנוּ אֵשׁ אוֹכֵֿלָה? מִי יָגֿוּר לָנוּ מוֹקְדֵֿי עוֹלָם?
הֹלֵךְֿ צְדָֿקוֹתֿ, וְדֹֿבֵֿר מֵישָׁרִים;
מֹאֵס בְּבֶֿצַע מַעֲשַׁקּוֹתֿ, נֹעֵר כַּפָּיו מִתְּמֹךְֿ בַּשֹּׁחַדֿ,
אֹטֵם אָזְנוֹ מִשְּׁמֹעַ דָּמִים, וְעֹצֵם עֵינָיו מֵרְאוֹתֿ בְּרָע.
הוּא מְרוֹמִים יִשְׁכֹּן, מְצָדֿוֹתֿ סְלָעִים מִשְׂגַּבּוֹ —
לַחְמוֹ נִתָּן, מֵימָיו נֶאֱמָנִים...

...Who among us can dwell with devouring fire?
who can dwell with the unending blaze?

One who walks in righteousness, and speaks straightforwardly;
who despises the ill-gotten gains of oppression,
shaking off the grasping of bribes from his hands,
plugging his ears from hearing bloody words,
shutting his eyes from looking at evil.
He will dwell on high, his shelter being a fortress of rocks —
with available bread, and reliable water...

Yesha‘yahu/Isaiah 33:14-16

Wildfires in Southern California burn half a million acres, displacing almost a million people! A group of rabbinical students from Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, led by the Judeoblogosphere's own Ben "RabbiBen" Greenberg, head out to the San Diego area to do relief work, volunteering with evacuees and relief organizations. Read all about it at Da‘at Binyamin
