Faces of The Fellowship: Dvora

The Fellowship  |  June 19, 2019

Dvora knows all about the biblical city of Tiberias, where she has lived most of her life. Today, she’s 90 years old and still cherishes memories of her youth in this holy city.

She lives alone, but her children make an effort to visit weekly. But old age is catching up to her, and she suffers from back pain and limited mobility. Recently, she fell out of bed and suffered a terrible bruise. Even though her health may be deteriorating, she stays positive knowing she can rely on Fellowship friends.

Thanks to our donors, Fellowship volunteers pay her weekly visits to deliver food, and fill her home with laughter and warmth. She enjoys telling them stories of her youth. These caring volunteers make her feel a little less alone and a little more loved.
