For Times Such as These
Kelli Shives | June 1, 2021
An increase in anti-Semitism on innocent Jewish people across Europe and in the Middle East underscores Israel’s need for both constant vigilance and the support and solidarity of her friends, especially as Israel celebrates her 70th anniversary.
Hatred for Israel has flared up in the region because of America’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Protesters have been injured as Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza continue to start fires and throw rocks at the IDF troops trying to keep the peace.
Rabbi Eckstein said, “We continue to pray for the day when Israel and the Jewish people will enjoy true peace and rest from our murderous enemies. The prophet expressed our prayer and hope in these words in Zephaniah 3:12-13: ‘The remnant of Israel … will eat and lie down and no one will make them afraid.’
“But until that day comes,” Rabbi Eckstein continued, “The Fellowship remains fully committed to helping protect the Holy Land as true Guardians of Israel, and providing resources to help victims of terror recover and to help protect innocent Israelis from future attacks.”
Your gift to help in times such as these is much-needed, and will be a tremendous encouragement to the leaders and people of Israel. Please be generous in your giving today, and God bless you.
