Lifesaving Help for Needy Jews
A Lifesaving Hand to Needy Jews in the Former Soviet Union
In the countries of the former Soviet Union, hundreds of thousands of elderly Soviet Jews live in shocking poverty. Many are seriously ill, but cannot afford medicine. The problem of orphaned and abandoned children is also critical – thousands of children throughout the region live on the streets. Isaiah 58 funds programs that provide these desperate people with:
- Soup kitchens, meals on wheels, and food boxes
- Medical care including prescriptions, medical supplies, and basic medical care and assistance
- Winter care including warm clothing, footwear and blankets, and heating and cooking fuel
- Physical assistance as well as companionship for elderly shut-ins through in-home care and visits
- A safe place to live, a biblically–based education, and vocational training for orphaned and abandoned Jewish children
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, The Fellowship’s president and founder, said, “Every day I thank God for our Guardians of Israel partners. Through their generous gifts, they are truly acting as the ‘watchmen on the walls’ of Jerusalem” (Isaiah 62:6).
Through this lifesaving work, our Isaiah 58 partners are truly fulfilling the biblical mandate "to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter — when you see the naked, to clothe him…" (Isaiah 58:7). Please join us today in this ministry of compassion through a gift to Isaiah 58.
