Palestinian's Abbas Ready to Renew Peace Process

Amid the ongoing violence in Israel, where at least 28 Israelis have been killed by Palestinian terrorists since last September, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said he is ready to begin peace talks with Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu immediately accepted the offer, but no formal plans have been made for a meeting.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • The U.S. Navy has caught Iran smuggling arms into Yemen. For the third time in recent weeks, a shipment of illicit arms, including AK-47s, grenade launchers and machine guns, have been seized at sea.
  • Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has expressed his frustration with Russian aggression against his country — and with the international community’s failure to step in. The ongoing conflict, now in its second year, has devastated the economy and infrastructure in Eastern Ukraine.
  • In preparation for Passover, which begins later this month, The Fellowship is distributing Passover food boxes to needy Israelis through the Yad B’Yad organization. The Fellowship is working to provide 50,000 food boxes to needy families in Israel and the former Soviet Union this Passover.
  • The Israel Electric Corporation, the state-owned utility company, has reduced power to the West Bank, claiming that the Palestinian Authority owes it $460 million.

Passover a Sacred Time to Save Lives

Help the Unseen

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
