You can bring "good tidings" during this season of miracles—and many elderly Jews like Lena cry out for a miracle to sustain them.
Your loving care is especially meaningful this season—as we look to God’s miracles—when tens of thousands of needy Jews around the world pray for food on their table and warmth against the cold.
One of these Jews who suffers greatly is Lena. She is a lonely Ukrainian Holocaust survivor who lost her husband, daughter, and grandson. Now, she struggles to make it through another day.
The bitter Siberian winter in the harsh former Soviet Union means life-threatening shortages for elderly Jews like Lena. Along with going hungry and dealing with the intense cold, she fears slipping and falling on the icy paths.
If she falls, going to the doctor is not an affordable option, and there isn’t anyone to help her up.
“I would be better off dead than breaking a hip or leg,” she said with an unthinkable certainty.
Yet only through compassionate gifts is The Fellowship able to provide Lena with an attentive caregiver who brings her food, water, and companionship each week helping her make it through the long, dark, and lonely days of winter.
Thank God Fellowship friends reached Lena in time. However, there are still thousands of other destitute Jewish widows just like her who need a MIRACLE. Your gift today will rescue someone like Lena tomorrow.
And you will have the deep satisfaction of knowing that, “I rescued the poor who cried for help” (Job 29:12).
