- The Judean Staff
Throughout Israel, survivors of the Hamas attack are currently staying in hotels while receiving various types of care from Israeli volunteers and the government. In the David Hotel located at the Dead Sea, there are currently 400 members of the Be’eri Kibbutz in residence. They can often be seen sitting in small groups in the lobby, engaged in hushed conversations. The quietness of the environment is such that you can hear the soothing sounds of the waterfall on the floor below and the clinking of spoons in the nearby cafe corner. Periodically, official updates are received, containing the names of friends, boys, or girls who tragically lost their lives in the kibbutz massacre. It's become a somber, yet formal, routine.
