Operation Light Up! with WWII Survivors and Veterans

THANK YOU to all of you who contributed to the 8th year of our moving and memorable Light Up! volunteer project on Chanuka!!

Over 140 Olim volunteers visited the apartments of our dear isolated WWII Survivors and Veterans, lit Chanukiot, brought nourishing and festive gift packages and created beautiful, musical celebrations in several Veteran clubs during Chanuka week. The elderly shared their stories and cups of hot tea with the volunteers and created magical, light-filled for all the participants, young and old. Here is a short musical clip from one of the Light-Up projects in Jerusalem:

Hanukkah is a family holiday and I was so happy to light the second candle with other volunteers in the apartments of our veterans. It was nice to see the light in their eyes and hear their interesting life stories about the war years and their time in Israel. They enthusiastically listened to the speeches prepared by our guys and sincerely rejoiced at our visit! I believe that such meetings are critical! For me it was the best exchange of smiles and positive energy. Thank you Shishi Shabbat Yisraeli for creating this beautiful opportunity to show our respect and love for the older generation and for reminding us how one hug can brighten the day of any person.
