Second wave of COVID in Israel

Humanitarian efforts are in the forefront again

As Israel entered a second wave of COVID, we are again faced with the challenges and uncertainty of a lockdown and government’s tightened restrictions.

If the situation before wasn’t troubling enough for many who have lost their jobs and sources of income, this second wave comes when Israel is struggling to deal with the unprecedented 21% unemployment rate and an extremely fragile economy that wouldn’t withstand another nationwide lockdown.

Here at Beit Hallel we are all about people. Our vision and mission is to be a pillar of strength in our community, as well as a helping hand to those in need. That number unfortunately is growing by the minute.

Recently Alex, a dear brother from our congregation, turned out to be positive on his COVID test. He had to admit himself to the hospital, because his condition took a turn for the worse after suffering from symptoms for the last 10 days.

He is a father of 4, and his wife currently is forced to be quarantined with the kids, without being able to even step outside for food. She has no family or relatives to help her.

We have discovered that despite what people think: that the government is the one to help during moments like these, you’d be surprised to hear that local authorities actually direct people to contact us and other organizations like ours, to seek help through humanitarian projects.

Which is why in light of the developing situation in Israel, with second wave of COVID sweeping through this nation with force, we are mobilizing our humanitarian team, and are committed more than ever to our COVID Relief efforts.

Alex and his family is only one example out of so many we are in contact every day, who are facing this dreadful situation that leaves whole families desperate for any kind of help.

Our COVID RELIEF FUND is crucial for so many families, and we need your support as never before while Israel is battling this invisible enemy.

Please consider supporting on monthly basis families here in Israel that are affected by the COVID crisis.
