You gave them a place to go for the holiday. A big thank you from the new immigrants and Holocaust Survivors in Karmiel that frequent the aid center in Karmiel, and really depend on it – for helping Israel Relief Aid to create a memorable Rosh Hashanah evening and festive meal.
It is an Israeli tradition on the New Year Holiday starting
on Erev Rosh Hashana (Feast of Trumpets) actually to blow the trumpet, or
shofar (ram’s horn).
There is something special about hearing this special
sequence of blasts . . . . to realize that destiny is not in our hands.
This is a holiday that Israelis spend with their extended
families, and they stay together for the full two and a half days of the
holiday. So, for
new immigrants who don’t have family in Israel or for Holocaust Survivors who
have no one here with them, it can be a lonely time.
Your partnership enables us to assist Israelis
in need for the Holidays. None should be left out.
That’s why this Israel High Holiday Season (from Rosh Hashana, September 29, through Yom Kippur on October 8-9 to the end of Sukkot-Feast of Booths, October 21) Israel Relief Aid planned five events for the needy sectors in the Holy Land.
If you participate during this High Holidays Season through October 21, there is a matching gift campaign which will enable you to double your investment to Israel. For details click photo below:
