Unrest on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem

Islamic protesters on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem have holed up inside the holy site, throwing rocks and launching fireworks at police and Jews who are worshiping there. An Israeli man was killed in a Rosh Hashanah attack when rioters threw rocks at his car.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

• A U.S. Senate vote to reject the Iranian nuclear deal failed twice.
• Russian and Iranian troops on the ground in Syria as civil war forces out refugees.
• Prime Minister Netanyahu traveled to London and plans a November visit with President Obama in Washington.
• A ceasefire in Ukraine holds after weeks of violence.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s Ami Farkas on the repentance and joy experienced during the High Holy Days.

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.
