This season of High Holy Days and Biblical feasts is all about bringing families together, and remembering together God’s goodness and mercy. This is why it is crucially important to give people reasons to praise God for His goodness.
Our goal is to ensure we leave not one family, single mother, and her children, and elderly Holocaust survivors without provision during these feasts. Especially 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 for us to remember the Holocaust survivors during the significant feast of Sukkot. For most of them, life is in its last stretch and they may not see tomorrow. Our duty towards them as believers is to dignify and honour them in their last days, especially since many of them are struggling and having to choose between purchasing groceries and medication.
God 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.
Would you help us bring them joy, as it is written in Isaiah 51:11?
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 special food basket for the holidays.
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.
