Raed Abusahliah, director of the Catholic humanitarian aid group Caritas Jerusalem, sought donations of food, clothing and other vital supplies for Gazans, he hoped for generous support from Christians and Muslims eager to help their beleaguered brethren recover from the destruction left by Israel’s conflict with Hamas militants. What Abusahliah didn’t anticipate was the outpouring of support from Israeli Jews, who he said constituted about half of the 600-700 donors to the campaign.
