A Year of Incredible Blessings: Looking Back on 2021

Saturday, January 1, 2022

2021 Year in Review

Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits.

Psalm 103:1-2

Dear Friends,

As the new calendar year begins, it is natural to reflect on what has come to pass. Here at VFI, we like to take the time to look back on what we’ve done over the past 12 months, grateful for the opportunity to make a positive impact by bringing relief to many more people. Our hearts are open to embracing more of those around us and expanding the work of our love and compassion.

Our ears are tuned to this coming year with great expectations for a better year.

“...For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required...“

Luke 12:48b

With blessings come great responsibility. As God blessed Abraham with so much wealth, He blessed him knowing Abraham was faithful to stay true and bring many to faith in God. Abraham's responsibility was to witness God’s faithfulness to him and his descendants. The same is with us. When God blesses each one of us, we in return are responsible to share what we have with those who are less fortunate. Bringing a better life to someone else does not diminish our joy, love, or wealth. The opportunity is ours to be a blessing and share it with someone who can appreciate and improve his life as a result.

It’s impossible to see the full impact you have made in other people's lives, but you can see glimpses of the distribution of love through some of the photos we are sharing here with you. It is truly a higher level of giving when one is sending love to someone he has never met or seen. Your giving is the greatest witness. Our team can share with you the amazing testimonies of so many thousands of people who are blessed by your generosity and your heart of giving.

This amazing work that you’ve facilitated, and the many lives you’ve changed and empowered, are beyond our ability to share with you in words.

We pray you have a safe and blessed 2022.

With grateful hearts, your friends,

Batya and Barry with the VFI team

Dear Partners,

As the new year begins, it’s the perfect time to reflect on what we’ve done during 2021. Here at Vision for Israel, we appreciate this time to assess what we did this year and learn what we might do better in the coming 12 months.

We ask you, as our partners, to reflect on the past year with us and what your support for our organization has accomplished.

Three main things we did this year at Vision for Israel:

  1. We increased assistance to families in distress and Holocaust survivors. Though we do this every year, we have expanded our support and reached more families than ever. This year, we supported families stuck in the crossfire of conflict, and families living in cities where poverty is heavy and employment rates are low.
  2. We responded to the emergency situation resulting from rocket fire in May of this year. Thousands of rockets rained down on the area, and we were there in the aftermath to provide support. Because of your generous donations, we provided protection for the residents of the south. Dozens of mobile shelters are now stationed on the lines of the rocket attacks in the southern region. The missiles from Gaza were aimed at innocent residents across the country and reached as far as Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and thanks to you, innocent lives will be spared. We are continuing with this important project into 2022, and ongoing donations are welcome.
  3. We continue to care for the vulnerable and elderly in the community, many of whom have been forgotten by family and government support systems. We are keeping them happy and giving them the support they need to live long, happy lives.

These achievements are all thanks to you and your generous donations. Without your support, none of these tasks would be possible. As we continue into 2022, we want you to know that you have had an incredible impact on thousands of lives around Israel. We send our deepest gratitude, and blessings of God’s love and protection for you and your families.

May 2022 be a blessed year for all.

Your friends,

Barry, Batya, and the VFI Staff
