Turning Despair into Hope

The Emotion in Their Voices Is Haunting

Mother and Baby

It is clear from the fear-laced words and uncontrollable sobs that these people are truly desperate for help...

When the phones start ringing at The Fellowship Crisis Hotline in Jerusalem, it is clear from the fear-laced words and uncontrollable sobs that these people are truly desperate for help.

These Israelis with nowhere else to turn are the very reason we launched The Fellowship Crisis Hotline.

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein has a close connection to the Fellowship Hotline. His wife, Joelle, heads the centre as a volunteer. She is taking calls and helping people every day. She’s one of the 25 counsellors who speak 7 different languages and connect these desperate callers with a lifesaving meal, clothes for their children, assistance with their heating bills, and the hope to go on living.

When we hear the stories of these calls – sometimes as many as 1,000 a day – it is hard not to be moved by the staggering need, and feel grateful for this hotline that’s offering desperate Israelis a place to turn.

Please watch this inspiring video to hear these calls for help for yourself. Thank you for your heart for Israel and her people.
