HOLIDAY GIFTS OF HOPE AND COMFORT
HELP JEWISH FAMILIES COME HOME
Countries impacted: Ethiopia, France, Ukraine, China, and India
In a time of rising antisemitism and economic uncertainty, the opportunity for Jewish families to make Aliyah to Israel is more important than ever.
When you support Aliyah, your gift will ensure Jewish families receive the help they need:
- Travel costs to Israel: Assistance for these families is crucial; otherwise, they would be left in limbo—without a home or income— and dependent on the charity of others.
- Basic needs upon arrival: Once they land in Israel, more assistance is needed to cover their basic needs until their government absorption bene!ts start and they can begin building a new life in the land.
BUILD A BOMB SHELTER
In order to safely send their children to school, go to the market, or participate in outdoor activities such as basketball, tennis, or swimming, Israelis need a bomb shelter close by where they can and refuge when the air raid siren sounds.
Unfortunately, they only have seconds to run for shelter!
Consider gifting a bomb shelter—or share the cost—and bring hope and peace to Israelis under rocket fire!
ADOPT A HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR
You can make a real di(erence in the life of a Holocaust Survivor residing in our assisted living home in Haifa. When you adopt a Holocaust Survivor, you join a team of dedicated caregivers who look after the Survivors daily and provide for their needs.
“It is wonderful to live at the Haifa Home. Each holiday is celebrated for at least two weeks. Children are coming, soldiers, police, and other groups to celebrate the holidays with us. The Haifa Home is one big family.”
—Naomi (88) has lived at the Haifa Home for 7 years
SUPPORT A CALL CENTER FOR HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS
The coronavirus lockdowns left thousands of elderly Holocaust Survivors struggling with loneliness and triggered the return of painful memories as Jewish youths trapped in Nazi-occupied Europe. Sadly, many of them were suffering in silence, with no one to turn to and no one checking in on them to ensure they were alright. In response, the ICEJ has sponsored a national emergency call center, which operates 24 hours a day on weekdays and is manned by staff and community volunteers from across Israeli society.
PROVIDE FOOD FOR NEEDY FAMILIES
Increasingly in Israel, families struggle to make ends meet—and many are below the poverty line. Gifting a food basket makes a profound difference for families during the holidays or any time of year.
“The LORD has founded Zion, and the poor of His people shall take refuge in it.”
Support Orphans, Children, and Youth-at-Risk
Many Israeli youth have no family or are at-risk. Your gifts to ICEJ AID allow us to assist this neglected segment of Israeli society by providing:
• Playground equipment
• A comfortable, safe, loving, and supportive environment
• Help transitioning to adulthood and preparing for college and careers
