Every so often, a whiff of hope blows into this grim town in southern Israel, circling its bygone textile mills and sending crowds of desperate people hurrying to the office of Moti Zohar.

Harald Fischer planned to be gone only a few minutes to help his neighbors, leaving his frightened wife and children huddled on a cramped landing as Israeli fire rained down near their three-story home in this hillside village.
