Over the past 5 years, with your generous support, the young volunteers of Shishi Shabbat Yisraeli have brought warmth and light into the homes of hundreds of isolated Russian-speaking Holocaust Survivors and  WWII Veterans in the Jerusalem area.


 

 


This year on Chanuka,  we will be expanding Operation Light Up! to Survivors and Veterans in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and Beersheva!

Our young Russian-speaking volunteers will bring elderly Survivors a gift basket containing nutritious and festive foods and a card with holiday blessings,

light the Chanukiya (Menorah) and spend time with them, sharing their stories.

Russian-speaking Holocaust Survivors and WII Veterans in their 80's and 90's in Israel are a lonely and dwindling population, living on their own and largely isolated from the outside world. Most of the young Russian-speaking volunteers of Shishi Shabbat Yisraeli - students, soldiers and young professionals- moved to Israel over the past 15 years, leaving their own  grandparents behind.  They truly value the bravery and contribution of the WWII Veterans and Survivors, most of whom also moved to Israel without family.

Each year Operation Light Up!  brings the generations together, building precious relationships which often continue throughout the year.

Please contribute towards the purchase of Gift Baskets for Operation Light Up!

3 baskets = NIS 180 = $54
