Project Spotlight: Passover Outreach in Israel

Project Spotlight: Passover Outreach in Israel

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:

Food cards to 17,000 families of children in need-based after-school programs

Clothing cards to 20,000 children in need-based after-school programs

Clothing and food cards for 9,000 IDF soldiers who are needy or who have no other family in Israel

Food baskets for 2,300 needy families

Food baskets for 1,450 needy elderly
