Shalom and blessings from Jerusalem!
I thank you for partnering with Hope for Israel as we continue to build His Kingdom in Israel!
In Israel this past month, we celebrated Hanukkah, the Feast of Dedication. Twenty-five high school students from our youth group, NerYah, volunteered at a hospital in Jerusalem. They went room to room, handing out over 300 Hanukkah treats to the sick in order to bring some cheer. It was a wonderful expression of the Lord’s love and the youth were just as blessed as the sick patients!
David, our youth leader, reported that the youth were really impacted by the experience; they were exposed to some difficult things, but they all understood how important it is to serve those in need, and to bring light into dark situations. The hospital staff was very happy to receive the youth, as were the patients. Many of the patients expressed their gratitude and said the treats they received were “the best gift” they had received during their time in the hospital. That reaffirmed to the youth why they were there, and how important their service was!
Thank you for entrusting your tithe to Hope for Israel as we continue to disciple our precious youth! I am personally very thankful to you, and I highly value your partnership with Hope for Israel as we work together to build His kingdom.
In His service,
Founder & Executive Director
Hope for Israel
