Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.
This past summer in Israel, especially in the south of the country, Israeli children were extremely traumatised by the ongoing violence emanating from Gaza. With over 5000 rockets and mortars having been fired at Israel's civilian population, children have been especially affected.
During Hanukkah we at Israel Today, with your help and support, were fortunate to be able to carry out an important project.
We managed to cheer up and support the following :-
Donate gift packets to Makor Hatikvah Messianic School in Jerusalem
Help the children of Beit HaYeled in Jerusalem add some joy to their holidays
Cheer up the children of Gan Gefen of Kfar Azza in Israel's south
Added some holiday cheer the soldiers guarding Kibbutz Kfar Azza
Donated Soldiers winter packages to Infantry Engineering soldiers at Zikim on the northern border of Gaza
Cheered up a division of Nahal soldiers also at Zikim
We could never do it alone but with your help and support we could "do our bit" and help!
It is better for a man to increase gifts to the poor (on Purim) than to enlarge his feast and to increase gifts to his friends. For there is no greater and more wonderful joy than to make happy the hearts of the poor..." (Rambam, Hilchot Megillah 2)
