It breaks my heart to know that thousands of Jewish men, women and children, both in Israel and across the former Soviet Union — including elderly Holocaust survivors — are struggling to survive and unable to afford even the essentials of life, such as heat, medicine and food.
That is why I urge you to make a year-end gift to IFCJ today.
Your gift will help provide these impoverished Jewish families with basic necessities like food, shelter, and lifesaving medical assistance and, as winter sets in, blankets and heating fuel.
My friend, there are so many Jewish people who need our help right now … people like Leah and her two precious children.
Abandoned by her husband when she was diagnosed with heart disease, Leah was unable to support the children on her own. They soon found themselves homeless and sleeping on the streets. Their situation was desperate. "If I bought my medicine, then my children wouldn't have food,” Leah recalls. “I was terrified."
Thanks to support from friends like you, IFCJ was able to provide Leah and her children with food, medical assistance, and even help them find a place to live. Leah gratefully says, "I thank you for everything."
By donating today, YOU can make a meaningful difference in the lives of destitute Jewish people like Leah who have suffered so much.
On behalf of those whose lives you touch, I pray that you will be blessed according to these biblical words: “May the Lord repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge” (Ruth 2:12).
With prayers for shalom, peace,
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
