For the Jewish people, Passover is a sacred time of celebrating God’s rescue of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery thousands of years ago. But for Israeli Jews who are trapped in poverty, this holiday is anything but celebratory – and is often just another day of doing without needed food, medicine, shelter, or clothing.
That’s why The Fellowship increases our funding at this time of year to help needy elderly, families, children, and soldiers. This year, thanks to your continued generosity, The Fellowship will be providing:
