Provide High Holy Days Help for Lilia
We have just one month remaining until the most sacred season of the High Holy Days begins...
We have just one month remaining until the most sacred season of the High Holy Days begins.
This leaves us just a short time to get special food packages to elderly, poverty-stricken Jews including Holocaust survivors who have no other place to turn.
Your help today can directly impact the life of a vulnerable elderly woman, like Lilia.
As the Nazis marched into their small village in the former Soviet Union, an entire family was viciously murdered, except for an expectant mother and her brother.
For over six months, under the threat of death for helping Jews, a compassionate and brave Christian family hid the remnant of Lilia’s family in the basement.
Without their help, Lilia would not have been born and her mother and uncle would have been killed.
Today, you continue this sacred work of provision and protection for impoverished elderly Jews in Israel, the former Soviet Union, and around the world through your prayers and financial gifts of support.
Yet as the sacred time of the High Holy Days quickly approaches in just one month, far too many elderly Jews do not have the food and other essentials they need to survive, let alone observe Rosh Hashanah with dignity, devotion, and joy.
That is why I ask your help today as we provide Jews, like Lilia, with food and other essentials for the High Holy Days. This significant outreach simply would not be possible without your help.
Please give your very best gift today to provide the blessings of provision and protection for vulnerable Jews. Your gift today could be the difference between life and death for an elderly man or woman in desperate need.
