Fellowship volunteers are bringing light, warmth, and companionship to the elderly and Holocaust survivors throughout Israel this Hanukkah season! Together, they will light menorah candles, bringing some comfort to the lonely, reports The Jewish Press.

“Loneliness is one of the hardest challenges for elderly Israelis — sometimes that struggle outweighs the usual daily battle for financial survival,” said the IFCJ’s Founder and President, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein.

“It is important that we banish the dark and bring light and warmth to the lives of the elderly in Israel on Hanukkah and throughout the year.”
