Project Spotlight: High Holy Days Help in Israel

Rabbi Eckstein traveled to Ashdod, Israel, last week to launch this year’s High Holy Days program in Israel, which will feed almost 15,000 needy families and 14,000 soldiers, and provide clothing and school supplies to 10,000 children.

The High Holy Days begin with Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) next week, and continue through Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) ten days later.

Thanks to The Fellowship‘s North American donors, the $3-million New Year Assistance Campaign will help thousands of Israelis living in poverty (Jews, Arabs, Druze, and Bedouin) to purchase food and clothing from a major retail partner without the shame of asking for handouts or hand-me-downs.

This year’s aid also will help some 400 new immigrant families who recently arrived in Israel from Ukraine on one of the Fellowship Freedom Flights since December 2014.
