High Holidays Campaign for ISRAEL

A celebration in Unity 

What a refreshing feeling it is to be surrounded by the fantastic energy in the air, as the Jews everywhere run around in preparation for the holiday of Sukkot!

As the majority of the world returns to their secure homes after a long and much-needed summer outdoors, we, the Jewish people, opt to leave our homes and dwell and rejoice in the sukkah. This is our way of remembering who we are and that it doesn’t matter where we are, or what we have seen or experienced, this is our time to celebrate in unity and joy! As the Torah calls this holiday,” Zman Simchateinu.” And like many Chagim it is during this holiday that we are reminded of our dedication to Hashem and to each other. The Torah explains that we are commanded to celebrate Sukkot with our “loved ones, servants, paupers, orphans, widows, and have Ushpizin (guests).”  But true rejoice will only happen when we ensure that thousands of struggling Jewish families in Israel CAN join us in celebration this year!

After such a long and turbulent year, Jewish families in Israel are continuing to heal, rebuild, and many are facing severe economic distress. And yet, Sukkot is here, just like it is yearly, and we all have a Mitzvah to celebrate this holy time in unity and joy. Even when one cannot afford to celebrate they are expected to. But this cannot happen without your support! Therefore, It is during this busy time that I ask of you to remember your brethren in Israel who need your assistance for basic needs this Sukkot! 

How can we truly rejoice in unity when thousands of Jewish families in Israel cannot? By donating “Food Cards” today YOU CAN ensure that they CAN join in the celebration!  

In the merit of your generous donation may you and your loved ones and all of Israel enjoy a Chag Sameach filled with celebration, unity, and joy!

Highlights of the Food Card Program:

Our Administrative budget in Israel is covered by the rebates we receive from the national retailers so that 100% of your donation goes directly to feed needy families. There are NO warehouse and logistical fees spent to cover distribution costs.

 Food Cards are pre programmed so that families can only purchase basic food and household products, and exclude any purchase of cigarettes, alcohol, clothing, cosmetics, ETC.
