Every year The Fellowship marks Holocaust Remembrance Day with a moment of silence — a time of heartfelt prayer.
But on this day of sorrow, we look beyond remembrance and move to action.
Forty Holocaust survivors die every day.
That means in the time taken to read this, another Holocaust survivor has passed away—likely after years of despair and fear. No one should suffer and die alone.
Today, thousands of Holocaust survivors face constant hunger, abject poverty, and despair—fighting every day to survive. With nowhere else to turn, it is up to us, through The Fellowship, to step in and be the lifesaving blessing they so desperately need.
Nearing the end of his life, King David cried out to God that “kichlot kochi,” or "when my strength is gone,” "al tashlicheni le’et zikna” – “do not cast me away” (Psalm 71:9).
Time is running out for these elderly Holocaust survivors. We must not abandon them!
This year, as Israel prepares to celebrate her 70th birthday, we are asking friends of Israel to join with The Fellowship with your best gift to help make their last days ones of joy and dignity without further suffering. Together we will provide even more Holocaust survivors with care, support, and love in these twilight years of their lives.
We pray the horrors of the Holocaust never be forgotten. May the sacrifice of the Jewish people never be overlooked. May the pain and agony of those dark days never be repeated.
