Fellowship donors have been helping build a reinforced trauma center in Sha'ar HaNegev, an Israeli community near the Gaza Strip where most people know someone who’s been injured or killed in a rocket attack. This trauma center will protect social workers and patients alike, so they won’t have to run to a bomb shelter in the middle of a session.

Can you imagine not having access to hospital care, just because your community doesn’t have an ambulance to transport you there? This was the case for people living in the town of Rahat in Israel’s Negev desert, where poverty is widespread. This community worried that the next medical emergency could be fatal, not because of the injury or illness itself, but because they had no way to make it to the hospital in time. Find out how The Fellowship is changing this difficult story.
Lack of dental care for the elderly in Israel is actually a very dangerous situation. Often, having a tooth or gum infection is the turning point that leads to their death. They experience too much mouth pain to eat nutritious foods, and as a result, they lose weight, get sick, and become very frail. Thankfully, The Fellowship’s dental program for the elderly is changing this story - learn how you can help today.
During our Winter Warmth efforts this year, Yael Eckstein brought warmth to the elderly this winter by delivering blankets to their homes. In total, The Fellowship delivered high-quality down comforters to 7,330 beneficiaries of the With Dignity and Fellowship program.
The young women who participate in the Fellowship-supported Yemin Orde Pre-Army Leadership Program for Girls, which is a program that prepares young women for successful army service, visited the elderly on the Jewish New Year of the Trees, or Tu B’Shvat, to plant herbs together. “Thank you! You made the holiday!” said one of the elderly participants.
