As part of our Rosh Hashanah event, food bags were given by Israel Relief Aid to participants (Holocaust Survivors, elderly Israelis, new immigrants from Ukraine). Here are some of the pictures.
We want to thank the Springs Aid Center in Haifa for helping with the event.
Thank you to all those who gave for this event. As you can see, it is individual lives that we are affecting. People are touched by this kindness and it gives them hope! When you give, it will be given also in your life — pressed down, shaken together and running over. May you be blessed!
