"For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there—but water the earth and make it bring forth and bud—that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater"
As we celebrate Tu Bishvat (the 15th of the month of Sh’vat) on February 6th, the Jewish new year of the trees, we are reminded of the importance of faith, the light of God, the word of God, patience, and prayer in our lives. Just as a tree needs water, sun, and nutrients to grow and bear fruit, so too do we need these elements in our spiritual lives and in our walk with God.
Tu Bishvat is a time to reflect on the cycle of life and growth and to give thanks for the abundance that we have been blessed with. It is also a time to remember our connection to the land of Israel and the importance of supporting those who are in need.
At Vision for Israel, we understand the importance of supporting the disadvantaged and vulnerable population of Israel, particularly during these challenging times. Recent data shows that the poverty rate in Israel has risen, with senior citizens, families, and children being particularly affected.
That's why we are appealing to you today to make a donation to our Aid to the Poor fund. Your support will allow us to continue providing financial aid, food, clothes, and basic necessities to those in need, as well as supporting education and other vital programs. With your help, we can make a real difference in the lives of those who are struggling.
As we come together to support the weak population of Israel, let us remember that we are all like a tree planted by the waters, rooted in faith and bearing fruit for the glory of Yeshua. We hope that you will join us in this important work by making a donation today.
