Tikvat Yacov's first offical event in Israel was a complete success, thanks to Seva & Irene Friedman, along with their congregation, Rivers of Living Water in Karmiel.
Seventy-two families received a food bag containing; wheat flour, white sugar, white rice, noodles, tomato sauce, canned corn, tuna, pickles, oil, tea and napkins.
After the entertainment had ended, families were asked to line-up at various tables where the food bags were distributed. Familes were asked to provide identification numbers to ensure the food was being distributed properly. There was also plenty of apples and honey to enjoy while everyone waited their turn.
Tikvat Yacov, along with Rivers of Living Water, will be holding these events in Karmiel on a monthly basis. Each bag cost appoximately $12.50 USD to make, and provides a family of four with one meal, plus food staples, such as flour, sugar, rice and oil. Please consider making a monthly pledge to Tikvat Yacov to provide a bag of food each month for a needy family in Israel. Donations can be made by clicking on the link to Jacob's Hope (below).
