Hanukkah begins on Sunday evening! While this year comes to a close, Fellowship friends continue to spread joy and light this holy season by delivering lifesaving medicine, food, and heating assistance to those who are most vulnerable.

We are on the ground in Israel, visiting our elderly beneficiaries of the With Dignity and Fellowship program, providing holiday gift baskets – with blankets, food – to lift their spirits and share holiday activities together, such as lighting the Hanukkah menorah.

Our With Dignity and Fellowship recipient Batya, an 94-year-old Holocaust survivor, says it best:

“I thank The Fellowship for the help you give me in my old age. I do not have any family, but I know that thanks to you, there is always someone who takes care of me. You are my family now. Thank you for coming to visit me and for bringing light into my little home. God bless you!”

During this season of miracles, you can provide a miracle to an elderly Jewish person in need. Learn how you can help today.
