This Chanukah, Adopt-A-Safta

As you spend time with your loved ones this Chanukah and reflect on all the bright moments of the past year, we hope you will take a moment to consider adopting a lonely Holocaust Survivor in Israel.

At 86 years old, Sarah used to sit in front of the TV day and night. She rarely left home. Most of her friends had passed.

Sarah’s social worker submitted her name to the Adopt-A-Safta coordinator.  That same week we matched Sarah with a ‘granddaughter’ named Ilana, a recent immigrant from Buffalo, NY. This relationship gave Sarah a new lease on life.  All week long she looks forward to Ilana’s Wednesday visit. 

“I need to keep in shape, so that I can keep up with my new granddaughter. I get dressed up and we take long walks down Rothschild Boulevard. Ilana even introduces me to her friends! I walk with my head held high and I smile at all the passers-by. Thanks to Ilana, I feel like I have a new lease on life.”

There are still 136,000 Holocaust Survivors living in Israel that need your support.  With your help, we will match hundreds more Survivors like Sarah with surrogate grandchildren.

Time is running out for these precious Survivors. Please consider making a difference in the lives of people like Sarah.

Thanks to Linda & Hezi Stein, The Gene and Marlene Epstein Humanitarian Fund, and anonymous friends of Adopt-A-Safta, your donation will be tripled!

You can restore the dignity of thousands of lonely Holocaust Survivors.

With your help, we will be able to match more Survivors every day.  Find out more at Adopt-A-Safta.

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
