A Letter That Belongs To You, Our Dear Friends and Supporters

pr file

The following was received from a family who benefited from Ezer Mizion’s worldwide What’s App program:

We aren’t used to being on the receiving end. It’s a lot more pleasant for us to always be on the side of the giver, who gives of himself and perhaps even feels a bit of pride that things worked out thanks to him…

 

But this time, when we were compelled to be on the side of the needy and the receiver, it turned out to be a very moving and important experience. We witnessed the broad-scoped response of people with a giant heart and boundless good will. We saw an unbelievably powerful well-oiled machine that is capable of moving, reaching, and propelling forward.

 

And we encountered many, many good souls whose sole interest is to do chessed with someone they don’t even know and who cannot even fathom how critical their deed is for that person. We were deeply moved to see the Jewish nation at its best – doing kindness out of true, unconditional love.

 

All praise to you, the Jewish people!!

Dear Friends!

12 year old girl, daughter of a cancer patient, is celebrating her bat mitzvah. Truth is that her 12th birthday was several months ago. Because of her father’s serious condition, the party the family had planned was cancelled. We want to pamper her with a nice cake. Who can do a cake for tomorrow?

What’s App by Kobi Arieli

What does the term “What’s App Group” mean to you?
Connection with the family, unfunny jokes from the cousin who thinks he’s smart, cute pictures of kids lying under the table or standing on the table, popular videos streaming in from 12 different senders, somebody has a good plumber in Ohr Yehudah, Tzachi Hanegbi wearing a shtreimel, a photo-montage by Miri Regev, Ma-a-a-zel T-o-o-ov! – In short, a few pieces of good news and mostly – unabated annoyances.
For Ezer Mizion’s chessed industry, the What’s App application is a revolutionary work tool.
A few weeks ago, Motty got on a plane in Brussels on his way to Israel. Motty is a fellow in his 60’s, an employee who works for a bank. He was on his way to Israel to spend the summer vacation with his grandchildren. Continue reading What’s App by Kobi Arieli

What’s App?

Instant messaging on smartphones can be used for many things. In the Ezer Mizion Family, it is used to see how we can help? Does someone have a problem? Is help needed here? There? Are you in the area? Does your schedule allow you to make a detour? Do you have the equipment/expertise to be of assistance?cell-phone

Information is conveyed instantly and help is on its way. Like Itzik Yitzchaki – Director of Hadera Municipality Workers’ Committee. He was on his way to work, already at the entrance to his office when his phone beeped. About face. Back in the car. There was a mitzvah waiting for him…a great way to start the day.

A ‘family member’ had been also driving to work when his car got stuck in the sand dunes a the city’s edge. When he saw that his own efforts will not work, he didn’t panic. He knew he wasn’t alone. A couple of clicks and he knew help would be on its way. And it was. It didn’t matter if Itzik knew the person. What difference does that make? We’re all brothers. Mission accomplished. Itzik’s day was already a success and he hadn’t even made it to his office yet.
