Operation Hesed — Pesach 2024

Shalom and blessings from Jerusalem!

Operation Hessed is an essential project which occurs twice a year at Pesach (Passover) and at Rosh haShana (The Feast of Trumpets), two major holidays in Jewish and Israeli culture which are characterized by joyful and festive holiday meals. 

Unfortunately, not every family has the financial ability to sit around an abundant holiday table; for disadvantaged families, the holiday season is characterized with hardship and worry about the inability to provide a hot meal for their families. 

Our ability to support these same families by providing grocery vouchers to purchase basic food supplies is a huge blessing for them. Beyond providing physical nourishment, the vouchers provide emotional support and recognition of their situation and unique challenges. 

This year we are observing the holiday of Pesach (Passover) in the shadow of a difficult and costly war which was forced on us. The holiday will be overshadowed by the deep pain of uprooted families, families who have lost loved ones, and families whose loved ones remain in Hamas captivity. Despite this, we will continue to honor this special appointed time holding on to the One who is in control.

This year, Operation Hessed is supporting hundreds of families, including large families, single-parent households, bereaved families and lone soldiers. At the beginning of April, we started the process of sending the vouchers to families and soldiers. Due to such a need this year because of the war, we have received additional requests to help approximately 100 additional families, which we will be able to supply thanks to your ongoing generosity.

Here is a testimony from one of the families we were able to bless this holiday :

"Thank you very much! It really helps take some pressure off the holiday. I really appreciate that you thought of me and my family. May God bless you and multiply your efforts abundantly."

We invite you to partner with us through Operation Hessed! Together, we can make a difference in the lives of more Israeli families than ever, giving them the opportunity to celebrate Pesach (Passover) with abundance!

  • Bless a lone soldier ($50)
  • Help feed a family of 4 ($75)
  • Help feed a single-parent family ($100)
  • Help feed a larger family of 5 or more ($150)

Thank you for your faithful prayers and partnership as we extend God’s love to the people of Israel. Together, we can bless all of Israel and make a real difference!

Chag Pesach Sameach! (Happy Passover!)
