This season of High Holy Days and Biblical feasts brings families together to remember God’s goodness and mercy. In these trying times when so many people have been affected by the economic crisis and the raging war in Ukraine, it is especially important people have reasons to praise God for His goodness.
This is where we step in. Our goal is to ensure that all families, single mothers, seniors, and Holocaust survivors are not without provision during these feasts. We do not want anyone to not be able to enjoy this special day that the Lord has given us due to lack of provision.
Our hearts feel an extra burden for the Holocaust survivors during this important feast of Sukkot. For most of them, life is in its last stretch, and they may not see tomorrow. Our duty as believers is to dignify and honor them in their final days, especially since many of them are struggling and have to choose between purchasing groceries and medication.
God has brought them back to their homeland, and we need to be there to reach out a helping hand.
“Those the Lord has rescued will return.
They will enter Zion with singing;
everlasting joy will crown their heads.
Gladness and joy will overtake them,
and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”
Our focus during these biblical holidays – Rosh Ha-Shana, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) – is to reveal God’s message, love, and kindness behind what we celebrate, and why we are helping them.
When we speak about God’s love and kindness, it is especially important to reflect that during the holidays by showing that kindness in action. A gift as small as $30 can help us bless one Holocaust Survivor with a unique food basket for the holidays.
Would you help us bring them joy, as it is written in Isaiah 51:11?
We’re grateful for your generous heart, your loving prayers, and the care you show the people of Israel through the support of the work God has commissioned us.
