What's New?

This year's Pack to School project is especially exciting, as the donations will be distributed from the Millennium Center for the first time ever! 

 

This summer, as always, Vision for Israel is donating thousands of beautiful backpacks to children throughout Israel. Each backpack is like a seed of joy that is planted inside the heart of each child.

The heavy heat of the summer months in Israel is sometimes unbearable. During those times, we often remember the lone soldiers (the 7,000 people who have moved to Israel from all over the world and serve in the IDF), so we were pleased to take part in an event to bless them.

Recently our team visited several families in Jerusalem and provided them with money vouchers. The families' difficult financial situations were evident by the state of their homes. We were especially saddened by the condition of Larissa's* home. She lives in a humble 2-bedroom apartment. The furniture is worn out, the appliances are old and her bed is broken.

Last week, our team went to deliver financial aid to eight families in Jerusalem. We call them "adopted families"—families who have touched our hearts and whom we help on a regular basis. These families suffer from unemployment, severe illnesses and large debts, and their distress has been ongoing for a long time. Some of them have to choose between buying medicine or food, or whether to heat or cool their homes, or buy food and cleaning supplies.

Train up a child in the way he should go,

And when he is old he will not depart from it.

~ Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV)

We all remember what it was like to be a child. The small things mattered so much more. Every trial was devastating; every joy was exhilarating. A look or a word could make an impression on us for life.

Even for an adult, feeling prepared and equal to our peers can change the outcome of a day. For a child at school, it can change their entire future.

Hatzalah Israel is an emergency lifesaving organization run by volunteer medics throughout Israel. The medics carry beepers, always ready to rush to the victim’s location to provide life-saving care. Recently, Vision for Israel donated a fully equipped medic motorbike to the organization. The motorbike responds to 150 calls a month in the Tel Aviv area and allows medics to arrive quickly and easily where they're needed most. We hope and pray that this motorbike will always be at the right place at the right time to save lives!

The second fully stocked ambulance we’ve donated arrived this month and will begin serving the people of Israel right away. We made the donation in honor of Barry’s parents, Leonard and Bluma Siegal, whose generous contributions, along with matching funds from other donors, made this vital, life-saving gift possible.

It all began with a plot of land filled with thorns. Then came tons of planning, visits to the building site, and meetings in the winter and summer over many years of hard labor. For more than a decade, we dreamed that one day we would have a permanent home, a home from which we can grow and continue our activity.

Today, the Jewish people memorialize the tragedy of the Holocaust. An estimated 6 million Jews were murdered by the Nazis in the Holocaust – 3 out of every 5 Jews living in Europe. On this Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, we ask you to join us in doing more than just remembering but helping those who even 72 years after World War II are still suffering. Please donate so that we can together help this beloved community.

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day, a day we set aside to recognize and reflect on the atrocities that happened not so long ago. As we remember and pray for the victims, survivors, and all others affected by the tragedy of the Holocaust, may we commit to always defending the oppressed whenever we see injustice occurring.

"Because I remember, I despair. Because I remember, I have the duty to reject despair." —Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor
