Save us!

This is the silent cry of thousands of Israel’s unborn children, imploring us to help their mothers before crippling financial constraints drive them to end their pregnancy.

For the past eight months, we have been experiencing an unprecedented pandemic, bringing mortality, illness and financial loss to hundreds of thousands.

Social workers report that a rise in the number of women seeking authorization from abortion committees on the grounds of their untenable financial situation. With no government support available in these circumstances, social workers have been referring women to EFRAT for assistance with practical help and emotional support, so that a woman feels able to keep her baby.

As a result of the current financial crisis in Israel, social worker referrals to EFRAT have risen by 55%. However, EFRAT itself receives no government support.

It is only the generosity of its partners that allows EFRAT to continue its life-saving work. These individuals have the foresight to realize that their contribution to EFRAT is the best possible investment. The bank notes that they donate to EFRAT are transformed into eternal life.

With this support, EFRAT has been privileged to save close to 78,000 children, some of whom have already established their own families.

As we approach the Days of Awe, when the Creator of the world decides who will live in the coming year, we all seek ways to guarantee life.

Our Rabbis teach us that Hashem treats us in accordance with our behavior. At EFRAT we hear of many miracles that occur to our donors and their families: lives that have been saved miraculously, women who have had a child after many years, etc.

These are no surprise to us. Hashem runs the world 'measure for measure' and just as these donors have saved the life of a child, so Hashem is merciful with them.

In the merit of saving the lives of Jewish children, may EFRAT’s donors, together with all of the Jewish people, be written and sealed for a good life.
