Happy Passover, friends! As we gather together and celebrate our exodus from Egypt and our deliverance from slavery, may we remember the many people around the world who are still in bondage to poverty, terrorism​ and other disadvantages​. We look forward to the day when, like the Israelites on Passover, all people are truly set free. ​We pray all of you are welcoming Pesach with joy and peace! ​Next year in Jerusalem!

As part of our Passover aid distribution to terror victims, Batya and Ariel from the VFI team met each one of the recipients personally. They listened to their stories, gave them special attention and brainstormed to figure out how to help them further. One of the people they met is Shmuel, who was injured in a terror attack a few years ago and suffers from severe post-traumatic damage. Since the attack, he has been receiving psychiatric treatment and is unable to work. His wife's salary is not enough to sustain the family, with their three children.

This week we've been busy distributing gift cards for Passover to many people throughout the land. One group of recipients consisted of terror victims. We met them at a central location in Jerusalem. We were able to meet each family personally, and it was important for us to treat these precious people with kindness and warmth. Some shared the immense difficulties they're dealing with, and some had their heads down and couldn't even smile. One lady in particular touched our hearts when she said, "I wish I didn't have to receive the gift now. I lost my husband. . . .

An old Jewish proverb says, "Every generation, a person must see himself as though he came out of Egypt." When we meet Holocaust survivors, we connect to the exodus through them, these people who came out of slavery and unimaginable horrors into a life of freedom.

In March, the participants of Café Europa were delighted to have different exciting speakers come visit. Gideon Braude, the founder of Bank Hazman (Time Bank), came to speak to the group. Gideon's program is about time sharing, where someone donates an hour of their time to the "bank" (like giving a child a math lesson), and in return, the person earns an hour to learn something that they are interested in. Gideon spoke about how the project began, as it is now functioning all over the world, and how it works in Jerusalem.
