Holocaust Survivors:

The news of the October 7 terror attack sent shock waves through the ICEJ’s Haifa Home for Holocaust survivors, as scenes reminiscent of the Nazi genocide against the Jews suddenly appeared live on their TV screens.

For some residents the fear became palpable, while others who had served in the army or police force in their younger days went into protective mode, ready to guard the home against any potential terror threat that might creep into the neighbourhood. Click below to read how ICEJ is standing with them…

Homecare comfort:
 An ICEJ Homecare Nurse recently reflected on how this current crisis has impacted a couple in her care:

“In Jerusalem, I regularly visit a Jewish couple who survived the Second World War in a ghetto. Last year, they escaped the horrific battle for Mariupol in Ukraine, fleeing their home as rockets hit their apartment building. In their 80s, they had to climb down a ladder from the second floor. After a long, dangerous three-week trek, they made Aliyah via Hungary to Israel with their two daughters, leaving behind a son-in-law and grandson. They suffered from grief and loss of all their treasured belongings. When I recently visited them, she held up three fingers, saying: ‘This is the third war we are in and this time we have nowhere to go.’ Still, they were finding strength and hope in the God of Israel.”

ICEJ-Donated Radios Saved Thousands of Israeli Lives:
When waves of Hamas terrorists breached the border fence and slaughtered over 1,200 Israelis on October 7, there were four Israeli communities just north of Gaza who managed to fend off the attackers and avoid the carnage which befell other nearby farming villages.

According to Amnon Ziv, security chief for the Hof Ashkelon region, it was special communication equipment donated last year by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem which helped save the lives of over 3,000 local residents under his watch during the widespread massacre that day. Click below to read how these lives were saved…
