The Chessed Doers

Sharing the Burden

A glimpse at Ezer Mizion’s world of chessed. Volunteering with all their heart, with dedication and consistence

Serious illnesses, trying situations — There are those who immediately step forward, the minute they hear about such things * They are called Ezer Mizion and anything connected to illness and coping with it is their department * Ezer Mizion is the address for patients and their families * They stretch out a hand, ease the pain, calm the fears, and provide assistance, enveloping everyone coping with medical challenge in a soft blanket of ahavat Yisrael * Avinu malkeinu, our Father, our King, send a full recovery to the ill of your people!

By S. Yaakovson

Thousands of people, each one with his own story. Each individual is a world in himself, each family — a complex system that enters a difficult and painful period. Continue reading A Reprint from Hamodia, Israel

Lottie’s Kitchen Event Coming Up

It was a stormy night. The wind howled, rain poured down. Inside it was quite stormy also. With nine kids, it often was. She was tired. The clock, her friend, smiled at her and reassured her that in one hour, the kids would be in bed and she could snuggle under her feathery quilt with a cup of tea and the book that had been waiting for her attention for days. Utter bliss after such a hectic day.  The cleanup could wait till tomorrow. pr LK 2013It wasn’t so bad. The laundry was all caught up. The kids had done the supper dishes. Miriam had even scrubbed the pot. She could head for bed with a clear conscience. Ahhh, heaven…

And then the phone rang. Continue reading Lottie’s Kitchen Event Coming Up

Overwhelmed!

pr food Pesach 2013

Mention Passover anytime in March and every family member’s blood pressure goes up. Each year it seems to be an insurmountable task even though we managed the year before. But what if this year is different from all other years? What if this year the family is coping with serious illness? What if everyone is running back and forth to the hospital? What if they are emotionally drained by fear and worry? Continue reading Overwhelmed!

Bar Mitzvah Celebration

What exactly is a Bar Mitzvah? The Hamui family have it right.

Thank You…Thank You…and Thank You Again

We wanted to thank you for… everything!

Two years ago, my baby was born a month and a half early. I gave birth in a hospital up north. The baby was in the hospital for some time. The first day, he just needed oxygen, but then his condition declined and he was on a respirator for several days.

The staff at the hospital did not understand why the baby’s condition was not improving and they sent him for all kinds of tests. Thanks to the Ezer Mizion contact person, they agreed to hear a second opinion from someone outside the hospital. (Thank G-d, it wasn’t necessary in the end, because the situation started improving.)

While the baby was hospitalized, I desperately needed a nursing pump, and you graciously lent me one. With time, we saw that the baby was developing slowly, and we borrowed equipment from you to help advance his motor skills. This too was given to us very happily.

From time to time, we have to bring the baby to a hospital in Central Israel for a check-up, and there we are treated to a hot, nourishing lunch – thanks to you!

Thank you for everything, and again, thank you! Words cannot express our appreciation!

Monique and David Haddad Host Lottie’s Kitchen Event

I’m a businessman. Thank G-d, I always have money in my pocket. I could easily buy myself lunch whenever I like. But this isn’t about a tuna fish sandwich. It’s not about lunch. It’s about caring. It’s about being there when someone else needs you. It’s about the little things like an attractive garnish on an already delicious hot meal that says: “We’re here for you. We’re connected.” pr lk pix preparing food
