The CBN Israel team is both inspired and heart-broken when we look upon the lives of those in Israel who survived the Holocaust.
Their strength and will to live is undeniably a miracle. However, each year they become less and less in number. Regardless, CBN Israel continues to invest in their lives and the lives of their families.
Here in Israel, there are many Messianic and Christian congregations that make it their ministry to serve these men and women Survivors. They contact our staff to help them. We offer them everything from organizational help, to funding. We help to provide donation items and gifts to these men and women. If we receive a request for dental care or a new dish washer, CBN Israel responds with the love and care that we believe God would wish for us to show them.
“Victoria is an 80 year old Holocaust Survivor. She was a child during the war and remembers the gnawing feeling of starvation in her stomach that kept her awake at night. On one instance, her mother gave her a horse’s hoof to chew on so that she would feel a little better. Victoria immigrated to Israel and lives in Akko. Every month, CBN Israel volunteers go to her home to visit her and bring her a food basket. Every time she talks with them she cries. She is so touched by the love and generosity from CBN Israel” (*name altered)
Our efforts don’t stop here. We offer numerous forms and areas of counseling to those in need. We charge nothing, and often give financially to those in need. There are additional stories of families that we’re tied down by their debts and struggled to provide for their children. A certain family of 7 here in Jerusalem was freed from their pending debts by CBN Israel and we continue to follow up with them and invest in their financial stability.
As you see written above, it’s our pleasure and service to bless those here in Israel with provision and love. It’s because of our volunteers and donors that this is possible. May God our Father grant us the opportunity to be a blessing to those here in Israel.
