This Yom HaShoah, we are all enduring tremendous hardships. But there are still, all throughout Israel, thousands of Holocaust survivors who are calling to us for help - The question is: will we answer the call?
Over 50,000 Holocaust survivors live in poverty in Israel. And today, they are more at risk than ever before. Many of them do not have families who can care for them, or provide them with basic needs like groceries. They’re getting lost in the shadows. Their lives are at risk.
But there’s something that we can do.
IsraelGives, Israel’s main website for giving, is offering you a chance to make a real difference - to provide immediate food assistance to Holocaust survivors in need. Through our Adopt a Holocaust Survivor campaign, now in its third year, we're providing food baskets to survivors like Jenny (83) who is unable to leave her small Tel Aviv apartment and is dependent on volunteers delivering her weekly food baskets, and Joseph (87) who, following a stroke, cannot leave his home at all.
Make a one-time donation or join us as a monthly supporter, starting at only one shekel a day. Each survivor that you adopt will receive a monthly food basket with over 500 NIS ($130) worth of fresh and non-perishable food, hand-delivered right to their door by our committed volunteers.
For survivors like Samuel (85), we’ll also fund a community lawyer who will help him to receive all of the financial aid that survivors like him are entitled to from the German and Israeli governments (often receiving funds is just a matter of submitting the right forms, something that few survivors can do without help).
Every month, you’ll receive an update from the survivors that we help so that you can see how your donation is making a difference.
In the last 3 years, the Adopt a Holocaust Survivor campaign has helped to change the lives of hundreds of survivors. Please adopt a survivor today and make a difference!
