Supporting The Ethiopian Jewish Immigrant Community On The Gaza Border

Supporting The Ethiopian Jewish Immigrant Community On The Gaza Border

One of the most disadvantaged groups of Jews who emigrate to Israel are those from Ethiopia, the so-called Beta Israel.
Many of them come to the land of their ancestors after having gone through conflicts, wars, and persecution, and are placed in immigrant centers to help them adjust to their new life in Israel, where they receive their basic needs, yet they carry a hard life.
Our “City Of Life” ministry team visited the center of our region where the Ethiopian Jews who arrived a few months ago reside to learn more about their needs and begin to support them in the best possible way.

Thus we begin our social work for the immigrant center with the mission of alleviating the suffering of these new immigrants as they take their first steps in the dreamed land of their ancestors, Israel.

With sacks of groceries and food we manage to show them our love, and let them know that we care. The joy on their faces made us know how grateful they were to have our help and support and even more to know that our project does not end here, we will continue to give all our support to the Ethiopian Jewish families in their new life in our community.

Join us in blessing together the Jewish families who continue to return from Ethiopia.

Support for the poor is one of the fundamental bases of our ministry, and you have the opportunity to join us and together reflect the light of the Messiah and make a difference in Israel.

We invite you to be part of our ministry so that together we can bring hope to our border town of Sderot.

   Our work would not be possible without the help of partners like you, that is why we ask you to consider in prayer the possibility of a monthly commitment that will allow us to continue with the Lord’s work here in Israel.

Sincerely yours

Michael & Dina Beener
