Chanukah Campaign - 2022

The month of Kislev is often referred to as the month of Nisim (Miracles). During this month we celebrate the miracle of Chanukah!

Every Jewish child anticipates Chanukah!  As the scent of Jelly doughnuts and Latkes fills the air in neighborhoods across Israel, there is a sense of excitement and joy. Schools and communities prepare for the Chanukah festivities, and the excitement of this holiday fills the hearts and homes of thousands of children and their families.  Dreidel games, presents, pastries, chocolate coins, lighting the menorah, there is so much to anticipate!

Many Jewish holidays celebrate the miracles we have witnessed as a nation, but what stands out about why we celebrate Chanukah is that it is apparent that the miracle of our victory was not a miracle understood within nature. The Maccabees were such a tiny group in comparison with the great Greek Army. The miracle is quite apparent when reflected in numbers.

Chanukah is an example of how our unity saved us, our unity lit up the darkness enough to fight off bloodshed and protect our people. So too was this same miracle apparent in the oil that lasted 8 days. The oil lasted to ensure that we have what it takes to celebrate this miracle back then, and this also stands true today! 

But what happens when a child cannot celebrate? As terror increases in Israel and inflation explodes, there are thousands of families who lack the ability to provide Chanukah celebrations! They cannot provide presents or doughnuts for they struggle to obtain food on a daily basis!  It is during these struggling times that we as a nation are to stop and reflect: Where is our unity? 

Inflation has left the needy, as well as hard-working families in need of funds to sustain their families! The thought of Chanukah is merely an added pressure for many parents, as they are unable to provide their children with holiday celebrations when they are struggling to provide them with basic needs! 

THIS is where YOU come in, and THIS is why we are here!

Inflation in Israel

Struggle and challenges are all too familiar to the citizens of Israel. Similarly, throughout history the nation of Israel has faced many struggles and has remained resilient, united, and strong! When it comes to ensuring one's family has food, that's when it becomes everyone's struggle! 

Inflation is in full swing. Although it has affected people all over the world, unfortunately it has made the financial struggle almost unbearable for all people in Israel, and especially orphans and the needy! 

According to several Israeli news reports; "Following the Jewish high holidays, food costs are expected to rise, presenting as much as a 25 percent increase in cost within the coming days." These findings pose a serious risk to all households across Israel, and especially to those already struggling! The dire hunger situation in Israel is more and more concerning!

Inflation has made the cost of obtaining food a real challenge for hard working families as well. This has resulted in empty refrigerators and hungry children across the country!

While we cannot do much about this current situation; donating Food Cards is something YOU can do to make a difference in the lives of a struggling family!
Your Food Card donation will help provide food for needy orphans, holocaust survivors, IDF families, and hungry families in Israel. It is during these uncertain times that our unity is tested and that our brotherhood is apparent! YOUR support is most critical now!
