World Champion and Holocaust Hero, Zarko Dolinar

Dietrich Bonhoeffer said: “Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility.” A renowned athlete and coach, Zarko Dolinar created falsified documents to allow Jews to escape Nazi occupied Yugoslavia. His actions, which could have cost him greatly, saved the lives of many—even his future wife! Thank you Zarko, for shouldering responsibility to keep the Jewish people safe.

Zarko Dolinar was a champion table tennis player from Yugoslavia, who with his brother Boris, saved Jews during the Holocaust.

We are so glad to see Israeli influencer Yael Eckstein and her ministry supporting Israel's heroes! 🇮🇱💪 Join us in praying for these sick IDF soldiers.

As over 300 Israeli soldiers are sick with COVID and going to an emergency Covid center set up for these heroes, The Fellowship is there with them!
Each soldier will receive a special Fellowship bag, filled with basic hygienic products and special treats for their isolation.

And as always, it comes with a note:
Donated with love, from Christians and Jews around the world.

Thank you, Hashem, for enabling us to make a difference for the better, during these very challenging days. 👍❤️

Can you believe it? Some like to place the Holocaust in distant history…but Winona reminds us its impact is still felt today!

Ryder said that her biggest childhood fear was that someone would knock on the door and drag them off to be murdered, like her father's family who perished in the Holocaust.

Israel's elderly and Holocaust survivors cannot be left alone! As coronavirus numbers continue to rise in Israel this week, it is important that the elderly, like Loti, continue to receive the food, medicine, and care they need, while staying safe.
During the last lockdown in Israel, Loti was left alone as her home care worker was unable to come and assist her each day. Your gift of any amount today will help us ensure that these elderly and Holocaust survivors are not left alone in this critical time—Don't Wait! https://bit.ly/327Gp8K

With coronavirus cases continuing to rise each day in Israel we are wondering—will Israel’s elderly and Holocaust survivors be left alone? Elderly like Loti. Loti is 86 years old and lives by herself in an apartment in Israel. Under normal circumstances Loti has a caregiver who comes several times a week. But not during periods of lockdown. A few months ago, Loti’s caregiver couldn’t come at all, leaving Loti alone each and every day, without assistance to prepare food or take her medicine. And with numbers on the rise, we are preparing in case this happens again. This is why Fellowship staff and volunteers in Israel are working tirelessly to prepare food packages, medicine, and basic essentials for Israel’s elderly—while taking every necessary precaution.

Loti told a Fellowship staff member: “This is a very difficult time for me. I want to say ‘thank you’ to The Fellowship for taking care of us here in Israel.” Your gift of any amount today will help us continue to provide for these elderly and Holocaust survivors in their time of need. Working together as a Fellowship Family, we will show these precious people that they are never forgotten – DON’T WAIT. 🙏https://bit.ly/327FLbk

Will the NEXT generation of the Jewish people grow up to know the faithfulness of God? Each day Sofia, an eight-year old Jewish girl in Ukraine, faces the realities of poverty. She lives a two hour bus ride from her Jewish community, where she learns about her faith and its traditions. She helps her family each day by getting water from the neighborhood well. Struggling with a serious dental condition, Sofia needs critical medical care to stay healthy. Thankfully, this is possible through people like you, who want to see the next generation of the Jewish people safe and strong. Will you help children like Sofia today? 🙏

When I put my kids to bed each night, I am so grateful to God that they have a bed, they have shoes, they have a safe and loving home where they learn to know Hashem through my faith and the faithful teaching of my husband…

But that is not what every Jewish child experiences. Jewish children in parts of the FSU face EXTREME poverty. Children like Sofia. 💔 Only 8 years old, Sofia works hard to help her family by carrying water from the well in their neighborhood. The family does not have their own home, and live in a house on loan from a friend. Sofia not only faces the uncertainty of poverty each day, but she also has a dental condition that requires intensive care. If it wasn’t for the support of The Fellowship, Sofia would not have access to the critical care she needs. But thanks to YOU, The Fellowship is able to partner with programming in Ukraine that not only provides medical aid for Sofia, but food packages so she and her two sisters have enough to eat each day. Without The Fellowship’s faithful presence in the life of children like Sofia, would they know and understand the faithfulness of God?? Let’s not forget the NEXT generation of the Jewish people! ❤

My Only Light in Vast Darkness: A Tatar Family of Holocaust Heroes

Hospitality, in its truest sense, is sometimes costly, even dangerous. Aysha Kanapatski discovered this when she made her home a safe haven for the Jewish people during the Holocaust. But did she expect to be reunited, years later, with the very woman she saved?

A Tatar mother and daughter in Belarus, Fatima and Aysha saved an entire Jewish family from certain death during the Holocaust.

A 6th century discovery? Yes, indeed!

Last week the Israel Antiquities Authority and Tel Aviv University found a stamp and seal likely dating to the Persian period. Could this reveal how Jerusalem dealt with the destruction brought by the Babylonian army? The IAA thinks so!
