Comfort God's People

“Comfort, comfort my
people, says your God.”
(Isaiah 40:1)
I am burdened – and on many occasions nearly exhausted – by the sheer magnitude of the growing needs of Jewish people who are crying out to The Fellowship for food, heat and basic needs.
There are tens of thousands of elderly Jews and children in the former Soviet Union whose grinding poverty has pushed them to the brink of survival. And the number of destitute people in Israel who have nowhere to turn for help is nearing 25% of the population.
Please watch this important video with an update on the conditions in Israel and the former Soviet Union. It is only with the generosity and support of friends like you The Fellowship is able to provide a lifeline to so many people in need.
With your gift of life* – just $18 or multiples thereof, – you can help provide basic necessities such as food, shelter, medicine, and heating assistance to the poorest of the poor in Israel and the far reaches of the former Soviet Union.
I am encouraged by the prophet Isaiah’s words (Isaiah 40:1) and by whatever way God may lead and provide for you to help His people.
With prayers for shalom, peace,
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
Founder and President
*PS In Hebrew, “chai” means life. It has a numerical value in the Hebrew alphabet of 18 – a spiritual symbol representing the celebration of life. May God bless you for bringing hope, encouragement, and chai to His people.
