Israeli winters are sharply cold, with strong winds, haze/dust and rain, as we are experiencing right now. In the north, Israeli winters mean snow.
January is Israel’s rainiest month. That is why for January 1-31 we are collecting Winter Warm supplies for Israelis in poverty and the homeless (especially in Tel Aviv and Haifa).
You would think that immigrants from the former USSR would have winter jackets with them. However, many immigrate with only two suitcases to their name, and a heavy winter coat takes up too much room.
Israel Relief Aid would like to also distribute winter parkas, blankets, hats, scarves, umbrellas, etc. to keep Israelis living under the poverty line warm.
With your help, Israeli kids living below the poverty line will be warm this winter. Will you help us? Together we can do this!
