September is always a very special season in Israel, it marks the beginning of a season of Jewish High Holidays that last almost an entire month:
Rosh Ha-Shana (Feast of Trumpets),
Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement),
Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles),
and Simchat Torah (The Joy of Torah).
These biblical festivals are among the most significant ones in the Jewish calendar and in many ways they unite the people of Israel in a special way as it celebrates together as one household — one nation.
God always commanded all festivals to be celebrated with family, He made a special emphasis on bringing families, households, and the nation together to commemorate what He has done for them. This is why we always take this time and build special projects around the significance of these holidays, focusing on family and God’s goodness and lovingkindness.
Our family-focused humanitarian relief project is geared towards families in need, especially newly immigrated Jewish families. Currently, every month we feed over 1000 families, our goal for these upcoming Jewish holidays is to bless more families in need with a unique food basket to help them enjoy truly meaningful holiday meals with their loved ones.
With as little as $30, we are able to put together a generous food basket filled with not only the basic essentials but also traditional food items for the holiday season, as well as special treats for the children.
Yeshua made a point of feeding the multitudes first before He preached to them. He also always looked for a family home where He would join them to celebrate the feast as part of their household. Jesus was a prime example that God is all about families and bringing them together around a festive table to thank Him for His provision and goodness.
Would you consider joining our hands in blessing these families for the holidays?
For a gift of $150 you can help provide 5 families with these essentials for the Jewish holidays.
For a gift of $300, ten families can receive a special holiday food basket.
Regardless of the size of your gift, your generosity can make an impact on Israeli families in need, and no better time to show God’s love than when the whole nation gathers to celebrate His lovingkindness.
