Project Spotlight: Fellowship Assistance During the Israeli Wildfires

The recent wildfires in Israel caused an estimated $520 million in property damages, injured hundreds of citizens, and caused tens of thousands of residents to flee their homes as flames were approaching. Fortunately, no deaths were linked to the fires, but at least 600 homes and some 32,000 acres of natural woodlands were destroyed. The Fellowship responded immediately to help meet the huge needs. 

Azimut graduates

Project Spotlight: Azimut Mentoring Program

The Fellowship-supported Azimut program reaches out to young adults who need help finding their way in life. The focus is on 21- to 35-year-olds with an emphasis on Ethiopian youth who are struggling financially. Fellowship mentors help these young adults get on track to financial independence and map out a plan for their future.

Yad B'Yad (which means "hand in hand") caters to the needs of the most desperate citizens of Israel — Holocaust survivors, single parents, handicapped veterans, lonely elderly, and new immigrants. Without this critical aid, supported by funds from The Fellowship's generous donors, these recipients would be without help and hope.

They felt this challenge event more acutely after a rocket exploded on their grounds. They were especially concerned about the pregnant women bringing new life into the world in their unfortified maternity ward.
