Israel Relief Fund
Genesis 12:3 God said to Abraham “in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Several years ago during one of Israel’s conflicts, many asked how they could support Israel in tangible ways. Because of those requests, The Friends of Israel created the Israel Relief Fund.
Through the generous donations to the Israel Relief fund, in a few short years we have been able to provided numerous rocket shelters in Israel’s dangerous areas, medical products for Israel’s only blood donation center, and even care for single Israeli mothers and their children who chose life instead of abortion.
When you give to our Israel Relief Fund, know that 100% of your support goes to Israel and helps to save lives both physically and spiritually. This is just another to say thank you to Israel for the blessing they’ve been to us. When you donate, you are being a true friend of Israel!
Apples of Gold: Why have we lived so long without Him?
Peace is something all are looking for in Israel. While Zvi was talking to Russian immigrants they asked him how he has been able to live in Israel for so long without peace. Zvi was able to use his experience in Israel and the wars he has been a part of to show how the One who gives peace that passes all understanding is available to all men. Although Zvi was often met with opposition when sharing his faith with others, this time was much different.
Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.
More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.
