Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.
Psalms 127:3

In a few weeks Israel will be celebrating the joyous holiday of Purim. One of the main activities of this celebration is the sending of Mishloach Manot (Gift Baskets) from family to family. This holiday is one that is especially memorable for children. They will dress up in costume and participate in street parades.

Unfortunately, there are many children whose parents cannot afford to involve their children in this festive time as a result of their economic circumstances. Many children rely on basic nourishment at after school centers, where they congregate in the afternoons.

Israel Today has been committed for many years to ensuring a quality life for all Israeli children. This year, as in previous years, we will be concentrating our efforts to help children from needy families to enable them to enjoy this time of the year.

Through the generosity of our subscribers and readers of the magazine, Israel Today will be able to:

  • provide Mishloach Manot to needy families
  • support underprivileged children, for example, by providing meals and financing extra-mural activities

Hope, Strength and Joy

What a joy to grow up in a big family! Children are a great blessing, each one a gift from God. Good health is also a blessing but in this fallen world, it is not something that can be taken for granted. Some of Israel's young people are already heroes at a tender age, fighting for life in the battle against illness.

Twenty-one children of Israel, Jews, Muslims and Christians, specially selected by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, recently met with President Shimon Peres and his guest, the very famous singer, Barbra Streisand, in Jerusalem. These children are between the ages of two-and-a-half and eighteen, and all with life-threatening medical conditions. The Foundation has been active in Israel for 17 years and aims to bring hope, strength and joy to youngsters suffering ill health, through granting them a big wish - in this instance, meeting the equally legendary Shimon and Barbra!

As an Israel Today reader, you can also bring hope, strength and joy to Israel's children by helping to meet essential needs - for food, clothing and medical care, to name just a few. Your contribution of $15 can help to provide these basics. Click here
