Hundreds of thousands of elderly Jews in the former Soviet Union struggle just to survive. Imagine you are old and infirm, living on a meager pension of less than $100 per month. You need medicine to survive, but you cannot afford it because what little money you have goes toward food. A harsh winter is approaching, but you have no money to purchase heating fuel for your stove, the sole source of warmth in your tiny apartment. If you could only afford one of these — food, medicine, or heat — which would you choose? Fortunately, thanks to generous IFCJ donors who are providing basic necessities by supporting our Isaiah 58 program, thousands of people no longer have to make that choice.

Elderly Jews in the Ukraine

Elderly Jews living in the Ukraine are facing extreme hardship. Many have no pensions or any regular form of income. Some cannot even afford their food or medicine. To make matters even worse, widespread anti-Semitism often makes it dangerous just to go outside. You can help give these suffering Jewish people dignity by supporting Isaiah 58.
