A Sisterly Mitzvah

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well-fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” Philippians 4:12

Brooke has faced many times of plenty in her life. Unfortunately, over the past two years, she has endured times of need. And, that is why we are praying, you will be her “loving Sister” today by helping to provide this beautiful daughter of God and her two devoted sons during this incredible time of need.

Brooke works as a consultant in the IT industry. She is a single mom of two growing (and always hungry) boys. Sadly, last Spring she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. 

She maintained a positive attitude and turned to God on her path to recovery.

In January, she was strong enough to return to work. The business she contracted with was quickly impacted by COVID-19, which ended her engagement.

Israel's Crisis Hotline

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10  

"I don't know what I will die of loneliness or the Corona Virus," said a 90-year-old Israeli man to our team at Israel's Crisis Hotline.

Fortunately, his call for help was answered.  His need to share his sadness and fears was met; along with his need to receive an emergency food delivery.  The increase in daily pleas for help has overwhelmed social services in Israel.

Watch this video. Joelle Eckstein, Founder of Israel's Crisis Hotline shares an urgent message from the Holy Land.  Passover is just days away. Christian Women For Israel has a goal to help 250 families in dire need this Passover. That need has more than doubled. Join us in this critical and lifesaving work.

Today's Mitzvah Monday Challenge: Be Kind to Human Kind

Be Kind to Humankind Week, observed every year between Aug 25 - 31, is an annual celebration of kindness recognized globally. Every day has its own theme with a list of lovely suggestions of ways to be kind to family, friends, neighbors – even those who may consider you their enemy.

The celebration is a reminder of how simple it is to show loving kindness to another individual – be it a friend in need or a stranger you pass on the street.   The suggestions are as simple as being mindful to someone’s feelings, picking up the telephone to call a family member or friend whom you have not been in touch with for a long time, and even committing to safer driving in our busy lives.

Be Kind to Humankind Week began with two women who provided assistance to stranded boaters when no one else took the time to be bothered.  With that as a starting point, take the time to “be bothered” to provide kindness to other human beings, as taught by Christ,...

Take the "Mitzvah Challenge"!

What’s a “Mitzvah”?

You may have heard people – primarily Jews – use the term “Mitzvah” in describing a good deed accomplished or within the name of transformational ceremonies for young boys and girls – the Bar and Bat Mitzvah.

Translated from Hebrew, the word “mitzvah" is not merely a “good deed,” but actually a commandment, among over 600 derived from the Torah.   All such commandments were traditionally understood to come from God in guiding Jewish people on how to live their lives.

So, a “mitzvah” in a sense is more than just acting with goodness and generosity in dealing with families, friends and strangers. Rather, it is all about making an ongoing commitment to live a holy life, most often giving of one’s time, talent and philanthropy in support of an individual in need or a specific cause.

As a group of Christian Women we challenge ourselves to live like Jesus to...
