Lottie’s Kitchen: A Circle of Giving

Once upon a time there was a family. It consisted of thousands of people. At times they received. At times they gave. And always did they feel connected.
A fairy tale? No, we are referring to Ezer Mizion’s Lottie’s Kitchen family. It is made up of thousands of people who, at times, devote hours to helping others and, unfortunately, at times, find themselves in need of help . And when the need exists no longer, they join the warmth and camaraderie of the Kitchen to pay back and, for those that had been previous volunteers, once again to be on the giving side.

The Main Course Cooks

A family member is seriously ill. The family enters crisis mode. All energy-physical and emotional- is centered on the sick relative. Nothing remains for routine needs.

Yet routine needs remain and must be met. pr food

Ezer Mizion’s Food Distribution Division has undertaken the responsibility of providing hot, nourishing meals for the entire family during the duration of the crisis.

And what is Ezer Mizion’s Food Distribution Division? It is not an entity. It is not a cold, professional office.  It is comprised of people.  Caring people. Mothers busy with their own lives. Women who are willing to give of their time and energy to shop, peel, slice, fry, bake and package  the main course for these countless meals.

Salary? There is none. Only the satisfaction of helping another Jew. Continue reading The Main Course Cooks

Memories of Horror

It’s all about giving back, says Adva Anter, giving to others like so many gave to us. That’s why I enlisted. I want to help my country. My brothers had wanted to do that also and now I’m taking their place. I hope they’re proud of me, their little sister. They would want me to help so that what happened to them would not happen to others. pr Oranit Adva Anter corrected photo R


Newly enlisted in the IDF, Adva recalls memories that she would rather forget. “It was going to be such a fun trip. Continue reading Memories of Horror

A Reprint from Hamodia, Israel

Hamodia, Israel – September 2013 Section 2  

 

The Chessed Doers

Sharing the Burden

A glimpse at Ezer Mizion’s world of chessed. Volunteering with all their heart, with dedication and consistence

Serious illnesses, trying situations — There are those who immediately step forward, the minute they hear about such things * They are called Ezer Mizion and anything connected to illness and coping with it is their department * Ezer Mizion is the address for patients and their families * They stretch out a hand, ease the pain, calm the fears, and provide assistance, enveloping everyone coping with medical challenge in a soft blanket of ahavat Yisrael * Avinu malkeinu, our Father, our King, send a full recovery to the ill of your people!

By S. Yaakovson

Thousands of people, each one with his own story. Each individual is a world in himself, each family — a complex system that enters a difficult and painful period. Continue reading A Reprint from Hamodia, Israel
