Chanukah In Israel!

Chanukah is a highly anticipated holiday for many Jewish children and individuals all over the world! The excitement accompanied with the smell of Jelly doughnuts and Latkes in the air is far too joyful to ignore! As stores stock up on Dreidels, Chanukah games, decorations, and parents scramble to buy presents for their family and friends, the cheerful energy of Chanukah fills the air! Many families anticipate gathering around the warm glow of the candles, as children play dreidel games, and feast on doughnuts. This anticipation continues to exist year after year.

But, did you know that such festivities are a real challenge in Israel this year? Many community Chanukah events have been canceled due to the coronavirus restrictions. These same events serve thousands of needy families yearly, and such families rely on them in order to join in celebration! With the ramifications of inflation in Israel, food costs and toiletries have risen by 50 percent, leaving thousands of needy families in dire need of support! 

In Israel, there are plenty of families who lack the ability to provide the experiences of presents, latkes, and Chanukah celebrations this year! The pandemic has caused severe tremendous economic distress! And the added taxation has made groceries a tremendous challenge to obtain!  Even hard working families have succumbed to request food aid leaving thousands of ADDITIONAL FAMILIES IN DIRE NEED OF SUPPORT! Israel has seen many businesses shut down this year, and unemployment rose beyond what the country could handle. Therefore, it is no surprise that these struggling families see this Chanukah as an added pressure, as many parents are unable to provide celebrations and festivities when they are struggling to provide their children with basic needs! THIS is why we are here!

Our mission at JAR is to ensure that families in Israel will have basic food and necessities in order to feed their families and join in the celebration of the festival of lights! 

Please open your hearts and join us in ensuring that our needy Brethren in Israel are able to join us in the Chanukah celebration!

In the merit of your generous donation may you and your loved ones, and all of Am Yisrael, have a joyful and peaceful Chanukah!

By sending the needy in Israel “Food Cards” you are giving YOUR brethren a chance to celebrate again, to rise from this pandemic with respect and dignity as they celebrate Chanukah be Simcha!

Israel knows we are here!

As we say goodbye to the Tishrei festivities, we welcome this new year and a clean slate. At JAR we are well aware of what unity looks like.  It looks just like YOU!  It is with your support that Jews everywhere and especially in Israel have lived through this pandemic, survived through heartbreaking disasters, succeed in the daily fight against antisemitism and terrorism. It is in the merit of YOUR support that we will continue to thrive as a nation, and Israel will continue to grow and evolve as a successful Jewish country to call home.  It is also through this unity that we will succeed in eradicating hunger in Israel. 

Israeli families are slowly recuperating post the physical and emotional turmoil the country has endured this past year. Schools and businesses are starting to function, and there is a sense of hope in the air. But the wounds that Israel has suffered exceed far and beyond the pandemic, tragedies, and constant terrorism. Children have been living in fear for too long, and parents are still finding it hard to find steady employment as well as the lack of emotional and physical strength to move on. Israel still needs some time before things really get back to normal.

That's why we desperately need your help! Your Food Card donation today will help provide food and household essentials for needy families in Israel. 

This is why we are here! It is during these uncertain times that your support is most critical, influential, and inspiring! 

Your Food Card donation ensures the people of Israel that they are not alone. When the people of Israel are down, they have twice as many brethren to help them stand up again! The people of Israel know that they are our brethren, and we are all standing beside them, holding their hand through this delicate time! 

Please donate Food Cards to the needy in Israel today! FOR:

Victims of terror,  

Families of IDF soldiers, 

Orphans and needy families,
