Yom Hasho'a in Israel
Thursday was Yome Hasho'a in Israel, Holocaust Remembrance Day. We’re focusing our efforts on some of the most deserving recipients of our care and generosity—Holocaust survivors. By definition, Holocaust survivors are of advanced age, and many of them suffer from health complications, a higher risk of mortality due to Covid-19, and ever-present loneliness. Pessy grew up in Leipzig and quickly bore witness to unspeakable atrocities acted upon her family and the other Jews of Europe. Her harrowing tale of escape, heroism, and redemption serves as an example—both of the inhuman treatment inflicted by the Nazis and the powerful perseverance of the faithful. Like Pessy there are over 180,000 survivors in Israel who are nothing short of walking miracles who live amongst us. With the help of our heroic donors, we’re embracing the Holocaust survivors and providing them with financial aid, social activities, donating emergency panic buttons, and giving them heaters and blankets to keep them warm throughout the winter.
