Since 1996, the Homecare program has been a vital arm of the ICEJ and shows Christian love to elderly and disabled Russian-speaking Jews. Our team in Jerusalem provides physical and practical care, and most importantly, friendship for the lonely. Assistance in the home helps those who have medical problems or disabilities to avoid being moved to an institutional facility.
Comfort through Caring
- Practical Assistance: We provide basic nursing assistance which may include showers, exercising, wound care and more.
- Faithful Friendships: Our visits to homes can last for months, even over several years so genuine friendships develop. Homecare is there for times of sadness or joy or even at the end of a life, and special visits and gifts are given on the occasion of the Jewish Holidays.
- Encouragement: Homecare comes alongside those struggling with a new language and culture. Many, like the Ukrainian Jews, have come out of a war situation with nothing but the clothes on their back.
- God’s love: We do this all within the mandate of the ICEJ, ‘Comfort, comfort My people’ Isaiah 40:1.
Help us reach the hearts and homes of elderly Jewish immigrants. Please partner with us so that we can continue to care with compassion here in their homeland.
