A Warm and Cosy New Year

Blessing the Poor in Tel Aviv

The evening of September 28th marked the beginning of the Jewish New Year 5772, Rosh HaShanah (Feast of Trumpets).  Amidst the festive celebrations and wishes for a sweet new year, many people exchanged small gifts. The poor of Tel Aviv were not neglected as Agape Distribution Centre, a local humanitarian aid project, blessed many needy families with gifts for the Rosh Hashanah Holiday.

Each family received warm blankets. With winter approaching, these blankets will provide many individuals and families with warmth in the cold months ahead.   In addition to the blankets, Agape also provided families with
traditional food for the holiday including honey and apples along with halvah (sesame confectionery) and various toiletries. 

“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’” Matthew 25:40
