In Israel there are so many various sectors that are
struggling, it can be hard to choose which sector you will bless. Yet, the “least
of these” is who we were looking for, the least ones of the all the needy in
Israel. The decision of which
is least was a “no brainer”, for in Israel, that would be the Ethiopian
families who came here already in distress.
These families came with a victim mentality when it comes to being
discriminated in Ethiopia, and they are sensitive to it and see it here and
However, there is a new generation of Israeli-born Ethiopian
kids, and they are changing their parents’ ways of coping with their country. To them, Israel is their homeland and they
don’t feel like Israeli Ethiopians, but they feel like just Israelis.
So, Israel Relief Aid wanted to help this new generation to
use their innate talents and give them a chance to excel in school and go on to
university and a career. This all starts
now, when they are young.
Israel Relief Aid brought a huge load of school supplies
for theupcoming school year that begins next week, September 1. The reaction bythe high schoolers was
heart-rending. The elementary kids
will receive tomorrow.
You’ve touched “the least of these”
in Israel! May you be blessed in return!
