A team of Israeli mental health professionals organized by the Israel Rescue Coalition will arrive in Houston on Thursday to help victims of Hurricane Harvey, reports Becky Brothman for the Jerusalem Post.

“People need help on the ground. They need to be able to wrap their minds around what was lost and they need assistance figuring out how to cope and where to go from here,” said Dov Maisel, Director of International Operations for the IRC and Vice President of United Hatzalah.
