Project Spotlight: Fellowship Assistance Ahead of Jerusalem Winter Storm
The Fellowship | February 23, 2021
Last week, a winter storm covered Jerusalem and the surrounding neighborhoods with a thick blanket of snow. The Fellowship together with partner organization United Hatzalah distributed more than 200 packages of aid. The packages included warm blankets, space heaters, and food supplies to elderly residents living in the area.
Our President and CEO Yael Eckstein said: “The Fellowship’s mission is to be on the ground and make sure that Israelis and Jews around the world are safe and provided for even in extreme situations. Whether it’s war in Ukraine, rockets in southern Israel, or snow in Jerusalem, The Fellowship is always there to help the most vulnerable.”
When distributing supplies, a volunteer said that Shoshana, a 99-year-old woman and Holocaust survivor, was so thankful for the winter storm assistance that she was brought to tears. “This is an incredibly important project and I am happy to have been a part of it,” added the volunteer.
