“But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.”
This past weekend, on the evening of July 17, Jews around the world honored Tisha B’Av, the holiday marking the many tragedies that have befallen the Jewish people over the years – most notably the destruction of the First and Second Temples. While it is a solemn day, it is not without hope, as Jews everywhere are reminded that their survival through so many difficult trials is a miracle from God Himself. Given the hardships many of us still face today, may we remember this message of hope, and trust that God has the ability to redeem any situation, no matter how impossible it may seem.
- Praise God for our faithful donors who continue to help us provide children, families, and elderly Holocaust survivors with basic needs during the summer. “And all peoples on earth will be blessed through you” (Genesis 12:3).
- We are grateful for our newest partnership with former U.S. Representative from Minnesota Michele Bachmann. Pray that this partnership strengthens our mission of building bridges between Christians and Jews and providing Jewish people in need with humanitarian aid. “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor” (Ecclesiastes 4:9).
- Praise God that President and CEO of The Fellowship Yael Eckstein continues to lead this ministry with strength and faith. She shares teachings and traditions of Judaism each week on her new podcast, Nourish Your Biblical Roots, with a new episode this week on Tisha B’Av. “You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word” (Psalm 119:114).
- Pray for the people affected by the terrible flooding in parts of Western Europe that has killed at least 188 people. May the families of those who lost their lives find comfort. “Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering…” (Isaiah 53:4).
