Donor Matching Challenge!!!

HeatersForElderlyNeedy

A generous ISF donor has put down a challenge to the ISF network. Any gift donated between now and Monday will be matched dollar for dollar! You can double your impact by donating now to purchase heaters for the elderly and needful in Israel.

Just as a reminder, Israel is in its cold winter months. In a place where 70 – 80 degrees Fahrenheit is the average temperature, the drop below freezing and the arrival of rain and snow can be shocking for those who aren’t prepared. Unfortunately, many elderly and needy families cannot afford a heater to keep themselves warm. Many people die in Israel every year because of the cold. Your donations can help them beat the odds! Each heater is roughly $50 – a small investment for the preservation of a life. Please consider what you can give towards this goal and keep in mind that anything you give will be doubled!

Protective Vests for the IDF

VestsAs we closely watch the news for updates on the Iran “deal”, the movement of ISIS in the Negev Desert, the scheming of Hamas and Fatah, and the movements of other militant, radical Islamic groups in the Middle East, it should come as no surprise that Israel is training and preparing for the worst case scenario. Israel’s enemies and tenuous “friends” are inconsistent and volatile in their relations; the only consistency being that they have historically cursed and declared war against the existence of the Jewish state.

ISF has been approached by a unit in the IDF about the purchase of vests for their soldiers (see picture). The unit requesting these is a top, high performance unit. These vests will help the soldiers better do their job – something that could be the difference between life and death in the days ahead.

We have purchased one batch of these vests. As contributions come in, we will be buying more.
