Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

Psalm 37:3

Your donations and support go a long way, and our team has already helped hundreds of people in the first quarter of this year. This is what we’ve been up to.

Joy, From the Grips of Terror

Recently, our team at Vision for Israel held Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebration for young adults who have experienced terrorism. Many of these individuals wouldn't be able to celebrate this major milestone without the support of our generous donors.

Donation of 60 iPads to Bar/Bat Mitzvah Children

Letter from The President of the State of Israel

This is a letter from President Yitzhak Herzog after the Bar Mitzvah event that took place at his residence for 60 children, victims of hostilities:

Dear Barry and Batya,

I was excited to receive your letter and I want to thank you for your
condolences and care following my mother’s passing away.

I was happy to see you and get to know VFI’s activity at the recent

Bar and Bat Mitzvah event—and even more so, the story that you brought
to my attention in the letter touched my heart. Your ability to look with open
eyes at the reality; to recruit partners, resources, time, and means to help the
underprivileged in general and terror survivors, in particular, is inspiring and
enables all of us to have an optimistic outlook on the future of the state of
Israel. I wish you both a long life with health and goodness,
and may you continue the meaningful work for the entire Israeli society.

Your success is the success of us all.

Warm wishes,

Yitzhak Herzog

Improving Food Security in Low-Income Communities

We started the year already in full swing, beginning with the distribution of food baskets to low-income families. May we always have an abundance of supplies to give freely.

Embracing the Survivors

Vision for Israel takes care of Holocaust survivors’ needs every day. We hold weekly social events to help them emotionally cope with the challenges they are going through, and sponsor 500 survivors every month, to receive life-saving panic buttons should they suffer from a fall or other medical emergencies. Together, we are extending God’s care to these dear individuals.

Mobile Shelters Provide Peace of Mind

Thanks to our loyal friends and donors, Vision for Israel recently placed mobile shelters throughout the Gaza Envelope settlements, including Okafim, Netivot, Kibbutz Nir Am, Giv’olim, Dorot, and Gevim. A total of 48 shelters have been placed thanks to the donors of Vision for Israel, and we are planning on donating more shelters as soon as possible. All shelters are located near public spaces, parks, schools, neighborhoods, and shopping centers so that the maximum number of people have access in case of an emergency.

Rehabilitation through Art and Music

At Vision for Israel, we are working on rehabilitation through music and the arts. The workshops we provide approach social justice from a new angle, giving several groups of people an opportunity to grow and heal.

The cost for each participant is about $200 and our goal is to sponsor 100 people. This has the capacity to change endless lives, heal generational trauma, and further the mission of social justice well into the future.

Emergency Request for Ukrainian Refugees

We are preparing to help the families arriving in Israel as much as we can with daily, basic needs and support. These refugees need shelter, food, hygiene products, clothing, shoes, and other basic necessities that the Israeli government is not providing. We are here to fill that gap and make sure that these newcomers feel love and support from the Lord.

Supporting Emergency Response Team on the Ukrainian Border

Vision for Israel sent assistance to our friends who are on the borders of Ukraine. Rescuers Without Borders, an Israeli organization and partner of ours, has sent medical professionals there. We continue to send them funding as we have for many years. With your help, they are able to purchase medicine, food, clothes, blankets, and other support items for refugees who have made it to the safety of Ukrainian border countries like Poland.

Purim Celebration for Terror Survivors

We opened the doors of the Millennium Center to families of victims of terror and violence for Purim this year. Hundreds of parents, children, and grandparents came dressed up in costumes to celebrate and enjoy themselves.

MDA volunteers provided an ambulance and volunteers, to make sure that everyone stayed safe all day long. This reassurance is key for many terror survivors.

We are so grateful to our partners, donors, and friends who make all of the above possible. There are truly no words to express the great impact you can have on these communities and families. If you have not already, you can take part in all these exciting life-changing experiences by pledging monthly donations to Vision for Israel. Our work is never-ending, and every donation helps us to spread God’s love and word across Israel.
