To give a glass of fresh cold water is an act of kindness,
to give clothing to one person in need is an act of respect
and to feed a hungry family is an act of love.
Every day we have some really good intentions and
suddenly the day is over and once again our
intentions are postponed to tomorrow.
Due to the day-to-day concerns and busy schedules,
our eyes could be shut toward blessing Israel, and
in essence, planting seeds that accrue back to our own
Knowing this, we want to thank each and every one of you
who have participated financially in Israel Relief Aid
monthly events, sea transport and clearing of
humanitarian aid containers, and projects that made a
difference in the lives of thousands in poverty.
It has been a pleasure to serve with you in the past year,
to have been your representative here in Israel to the needy.
The coming new year brings with it more opportunities
to keep our focus towards blessing the Holy Land.
We look forward to bringing smiles and hope together with you.
A sweet, healthy and prosperous new year from us,
Max Veenstra – Chairman, Israel Relief Aid
Jo Kaplan – CEO, Israel Relief Aid
and the Israel Relief Aid Team
