Did you know that there are now almost 2 million Israelis who live under the poverty line?
Many of them are elderly Russian Jews and quite a few are Holocaust survivors. We want to help them in the name of Jesus with food, clothing, furniture, counseling services and much more. There is also an increasing number of drug- and alcohol-dependent Israelis – many from among the Russian immigrant population – who desperately need our help. The holiday season will also be difficult for single mothers in Israel.
By God’s grace, because we have begun outreach through the Tel Aviv Messianic Center (which has a full industrial kitchen), we are in the unique position to help hundreds of these desperate people right now. I don’t know if you have ever been to Israel, but I can assure you that even though Tel Aviv generally has a mild climate, it is still cold there during the winter nights.
The need is urgent and the time to send your gift – especially if you would like to maximize your gift for tax purposes – is now.
Whatever you donate will be used to feed the hungry in Israel, provide a warm place for those who are cold to have a cup of tea or coffee with a believer who will lend them a sympathetic ear and of course share the Gospel with them.
It takes about $300 per day to operate our Tel Aviv Messianic Center. Perhaps the Lord will allow you to give to support part of a day, a few days, or even a full month’s worth of operational costs so that we can meet the urgent needs of Jewish people in Tel Aviv – in the name of the One who gave His life for us.
May the Lord be with you!
