The Fellowship has supported ELEM, an organization that reaches out to at-risk youth, since 2002. Through a Fellowship House and an outreach van that distributes aid to young people on the streets at night, this organization offers hope to teens and young adults dealing with abuse, addiction, neglect, homelessness, and a host of other problems.

The Fellowship’s Audio Book Project enables seeing-impaired Israelis, many of them elderly, to enjoy the pleasure of listening to literature. For many of these people, their vision impairment means a life of isolation and despair. Many are physically unable to leave their homes, leaving them trapped in silence with only their memories, which are often bleak, to keep them company.
The Fellowship has supported the Israel Defense Forces for years, mainly through our partnership with the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF), providing needed assistance for these brave men and women who give their all to protect the Holy Land.
At the end of November 2016, wildfires – some intentionally started – 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. While insurance companies cover private damages, there is no government reimbursement for the public parks decimated by the fire. Therefore, The Fellowship is giving money to renovate the HaPalmach Park in Haifa, one of the hardest-hit areas.
Fellowship Freedom Flights have helped thousands of Jewish people make aliyah (immigrate to Israel) in recent years. While the flight to the Holy Land is a big part of what we provide for these immigrants, it’s certainly not the only thing we provide. In order to help prepare new olim (immigrants) for the first stage of their new lives in Israel, and to guarantee their absorption will be ultimately successful, we host aliyah seminars, a series of informative lectures by experts in the field about their first steps in Israel, including job searching and navigating the health care and education system in Israel.
