Thursday morning of November 7, 2019, amidst the soon approaching Sabbath preparation in the roaring hills of Jerusalem, a group of 50 Christians were on a mission. Hailing from Alabama, they made a point to stop to pay tribute and focus on Israeli citizens in need. They discussed the struggles to make ends meet throughout the Holy Land. These Holocaust Survivors or Israelis who live below the poverty line turn to Meir Panim in support to help brighten their day and bring food to the table. And the Christians understand that.
Providing Mimi Rozmaryn, director of global development for Meir Panim with a check and broad prayer for the immense appreciation to be in Israel, the chairs in the Restaurant-Style Soup Kitchen in Jerusalem came alive. Rozmaryn explained how anyone can come into the branch to receive a warm lunch. The mission of Meir Panim has spoken to her and many others for helping make life in Israel, a better place.
Pastor George Sawyer, of the Calvary Assembly in Alabama concluded with a quote from Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States in which he said: “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” With a show of nods, all in the group were in awe of the work conducted at Meir Panim and felt complete joy in supporting good deed.
Don’t delay your moment of inspiration and for changing life in Israel. If you or your group are interested in visiting a branch of Meir Panim, contact us to find out how you can be involved.
