Join our Shavuot Campaign in Benefit of the Orphans and Needy Families in Israel!

The scent of dairy pastries and blintzes fill the air reminding us that Shavuot is almost here! On this special holiday, little girls and boys dressed in white and floral prints giggle through the streets of Israel. It is known that on Shavuot we celebrate Matan Torah; the moment that marks our unity as a nation.

This Shavuot for many of our brethren in Israel the joy of Z'man Matan Torateinu will be eclipsed by the burden of the poverty they face. The statistic are heart-wrenching; 2.5 million Israelis live in poverty, out of which 1.1 are children, and 1 in every 4 Holocaust survivor cannot make ends meet.

Not only are thousands of Israeli families struggling to put a hot meal on the table, they are also coping with the trauma and fear that trail the new wave of barbaric terrorism in our Holy Land. In the past two months some 19 Israelis have lost their lives at the hands of terrorism. New widows, orphans, families, and the entire nation struggles to find a sense of normalcy and security under the current situation.  

We are here as a nation, once again preparing to celebrate another chag shavuot! Yet, as we prepare with anticipation for this special holiday, I ask that you remember that Israel has suffered economically so much during this pandemic! I ask that you remember that there are many children in Israel who don't have that luxury of celebrating with their loved ones and enjoying the delicacies and abundance most Jewish children enjoy! I ask you to remember the orphans and the needy families, the elderly Holocaust survivors and the destitute!

That's why we are here!

Remember the words our ancestors made echo at the base of Mount Sinai-- Naaseh v'Nishma!

Together we can ensure that the orphans and needy families in Israel will be able to rejoice like their peers, and with the dignity and respect that a Jew is entitled to.

As we stand in unity on the day of Matan Torah, I ask you to stand in unity with our orphans and needy brethren in Israel!

Needy Israeli families are in need of food and supplies for the holiday. We must remember that there are Jews in Israel who do not have the luxury of purchasing food for the holiday, for they struggle daily to count their shekels at the register! Let's work together and ensure that they too can give their children the chance to rejoice and celebrate this holiday in all its glory.

Putting food on their tables is the only way to ensure orphans and needy families in Israel have food!

Israel knows we are here!

As Covid restrictions slowly diminish all over the world, in Israel school and business closures are still very much a part of daily life! To add to the already difficult pandemic circumstances, Israelis are now facing a new wave of terror attack that has left the country once again paralized by fear and trauma. The economic turmoil and recent terrorism has taken a toll on everyone, and this is even more apparent in the homes of the needy.  

That is why we are here! At JAR we are well aware of what unity looks like, and 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, and succeeded 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 we call home!  It is through unity that we will succeed in eradicating hunger in Israel! 

The truth is that the wounds Israel has suffered as a result of this pandemic and recent events exceeds far and beyond what the country can manage. With constant restrictions, school and business closures, tragedies, and 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. And we need your support to help them heal!

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!
