Eternal life is a greater gift than any temporary help we can give on this earth, yet God makes his passion for the poor and needy very clear throughout Scriptures. If we love God, we cannot ignore the needs of the people around us. In fact, as James writes, faith that is not prepared to act on behalf of others is no faith at all.
JAMES 2:14-17 “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled”, without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”
Caring for Holocaust Survivors
Like any major city, our city has areas where there are many living below the poverty line, many of whom survived the Holocaust.
ONE FOR ISRAEL has coordinated with the city municipality to find households in great need, particularly Jewish Holocaust survivors, and to take them gifts of food and supplies. All our staff team go and visit these dear ones, often alone and struggling with life, and seek to give not only practical help, but also to bring some comfort, encouragement, and love in the name of the Lord.
It is important to ONE FOR ISRAEL to remember the Holocaust Survivors in our community. We partner with local municipalities to supply them with dignity, aid, and practical assistance.
Maintaining a Pro-Life Stance
Israel has one of the highest abortion rates in the world.
Though unpopular in our culture, ONE FOR ISRAEL maintains a pro-life stance.
We stand with the families and newborns and reach out to the new mothers who chose to keep their babies.
Trial – Struggle – Hopelessness.
These unwanted companions are too well-known to Holocaust Survivors and Pro-Life Single Parents in Israel. ONE FOR ISRAEL makes a point to reach out and offer support through our humanitarian aid outreaches.
