Holocaust Survivor | Jacob’s Story

He felt so helpless. Not as badly as when Jacob had seen Nazis shoot people in the street, or assault his sisters, or take his parents away—never to return. And he couldn’t forget the horror of watching his grandmother and others lined up in front of a huge hole in the ground and shot in the back—after which the young boy was mute for days.

Immigrating to Israel and proudly serving for 40 years in the Israeli army helped ease those early memories. So did the joy of raising two children and then becoming a loving grandparent. But today was a different kind of stress—the medication Jacob’s wife needed for a recently diagnosed medical condition was expensive and he didn’t know how he’d pay for it.

Thankfully, through CBN Israel, compassionate people like you were there for Jacob and his wife by making it possible to purchase her medicine. This support also helped provide transport to take her to doctors’ appointments and meet everyday needs. Such generous aid has been a tremendous source of encouragement and strength for the couple, and they are so grateful.
