Right now, many countries around the world are locked down in an effort to stem the spread of coronavirus, but the situation in Israel is unique. If you have ever been there, you know that Israel's economy is rooted in their rich, open social marketplace. Across Israel, they work together, shop together, play together, worship together, and celebrate together.
But in this lockdown environment, the loud, boisterous streets are silent. Their shops are closed. Families who would normally be giving generously to charity are now receiving charity. They are losing their businesses and homes. In addition, Israel is facing new waves of terrorist attacks, from bombings to crop burnings. And the people who suffer the most are the ones most in need of care: widows, orphans, and the poor. We oversee the care of tens of thousands of people in Israel who cannot care for themselves, but as the the need has increased dramatically this year as families see their income and their legacy drained away.
The future is growing very dark in Israel, so we need to bring LIGHT!

We are working to raise $500,000 during 2021 to ensure that badly-needed food and supplies make it safely to the hands of families that need them. It sounds like a huge goal, but it's a huge need right now. And you'd be amazed at how quickly something like this comes together when lots of people do something.
First, Rabbi Natan will teach a 45-minute Torah lesson about Abraham and Sarah to everyone who activates their fundraiser by Friday, March 5, 2021. You won't want to miss as Rabbi Natan highlights the rich nuances of the original Hebrew language in the book of Genesis.
Then, the first 10 people to complete their $50,000 goal will get a private 45-minute call with Rabbi Natan, where he will answer your questions from his vast and deep knowledge of the Scriptures.
If you've never heard him teach, here's a quick sample:
