God says: Today is a special day
Sep 26, 2022
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, "Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.'" Leviticus 23:23-24
Today is a very special time on God's calendar.
It is Rosh Hashanah – the Jewish New Year 5783!
All across the world the Jewish people are celebrating this day by blowing the shofar, exchanging cards, having a meal together, and eating foods like apples and honey to remind them of the "sweetness" of God's goodness.
Sadly, for some like Alexandra this may not be a "happy new year" at all.
Alexandra is an immigrant from the former Soviet Union. Though she had a good job there, she has fallen into poverty in Israel and is struggling to survive.
With the economy still reeling from the pandemic and the constant terror attacks, this is an especially challenging time for people like Alexandra to be able to celebrate what should be a joyous time of the year.
The latest estimates are that tens of thousands of Israeli families could be going without food this Rosh Hashanah!
That is why our teams at the Abraham's Bread Feeding Centers in Jerusalem and Tiberias are packing and preparing hundreds of meals to deliver to needy families all over Israel.
You and I have an opportunity during this season of celebrating God's goodness to do something practical to bless the people of Israel, like Alexandra and her family.
This Rosh Hashanah, will you give a special gift to help make sure that this is truly a season of joy for the people of Israel?
Together let us reach out with the love and compassion of God to care for those in desperate need.
I'm asking you to give a special Rosh Hashanah New Year offering to help care for these families. As you honor God with your gift this Rosh Hashanah you will provide hope and help to God's people, and a sweet and joyous start to 5783.
Here is what your gift can do:
A gift of $10 will deliver a food basket to a struggling couple.
A gift of $30 will secure needed supplies for a new immigrant for a week.
A gift of $150 will provide a family of 5 a week of fresh fruits, vegetables, and essentials.
Your gift of $10, $30, $150, or any size will make a real difference in their lives.
Thank you in advance for your generosity on behalf of Israel and Jerusalem!
May the Lord bless you from Zion, and may your 5783 be sweet!
