Israel Under Fire

On Tuesday, while most of the world slept peacefully in their beds, Israel was under attack.

Hundreds of rockets fired by Islamic Jihad, a terrorist group supported by Iran, have rained down on Israel. Over one million innocent elderly, families, and children are within range of the rockets and missiles, some of which have struck as far away as central Israel.

These terrorists have no regard for innocent life. They don’t care what…or who…they hit.

Dozens of people have been treated for injury and trauma, and children are crippled with fear. One sweet little 8-year-old collapsed at the sound of the emergency sirens — she’s in serious condition.

Isolated elderly are trapped in harm’s way, with no one to help them reach a bomb shelter in time…if they even have one nearby. Homes have been destroyed and precious families have been displaced, everything they had gone in an instant.

The people of Israel are in grave danger. That’s why I am coming to you with an urgent request to help The Fellowship mobilize our volunteers to…

Place 25 mobile bomb shelters in communities under fire to save vulnerable lives who are going without protection.

Deliver emergency aid like food, clothing, shelter, and basic needs to families affected by this terror.

Distribute protective vests to first response volunteers as they try to save lives during this escalating crisis.

Israel needs every single friend she has to lift their voices in prayer at this very moment.

Please pray that the Guardian of Israel, who “will neither slumber nor sleep” (Psalm 121:4), will protect His people as her enemies rise up against her. And as you do, please put your prayers into action by giving an emergency gift to bring comfort and security to innocent Israelis under fire.

With prayers for the peace of Jerusalem,

The Only Thing We Take with Us

I was inspired by my father’s legacy of kindness and generosity at the recent dedication of Rambam Hospital’s shock trauma unit, which was made possible because of blessings from Fellowship friends like you who continue his life’s work of blessing others.

Give Thanks to the Lord

The message of Thanksgiving — that even in the toughest times, we must appreciate our blessings — particularly resonates with me this year. I pray that your heart will be filled with gratefulness for the many blessings, as well.
