Fellowship volunteers are bringing light, warmth, and companionship to the elderly and Holocaust survivors in Israel this Hanukkah season! Together, they will light menorah candles, bringing some warmth to the lonely, reports The Jewish Press.
This season is a time to celebrate for both Christians and Jews, as well as a time to consider what we have in common.
The JDC, The Fellowship's partner in the former Soviet Union, is helping restore dignity and hope to elderly and impoverished Jews during this season of light.
After Holocaust survivor Avraham Takotch, 90, from Donetsk, Ukraine, expressed his deep desire to visit one of the holiest places in Judaism, his granddaughter contacted The Fellowship Crisis Hotline, where operators were happy to help make Avraham’s dream come true. Recently, Avraham finally got to place his hand on the Western Wall for the first time.
