Dear Friends,

Christmas and the New Year are with us once again. Now we are all contemplating this special feast and its meaning for all of us. This is for all of us especially a time of thanksgiving. We thank the Lord for His most precious gift and miracle of sending His Son into the world, born as a child in Bethlehem from the Blessed Virgin Mary. We thank the Lord for the many blessings that He has given to all of us: our families, health, homes, the food we eat and drink and the grace which He has bestowed upon us which allows us to share our love with others.

At this time of year, Caritas Jerusalem is also in the Christmas spirit and we are especially thankful to God who has blessed our work. We are so thankful to you, our friends and partners, who continue to make our work with the neediest, most marginalize and forgotten segments of the population possible.

This year is our 39th year. It has not been an easy one, however, we have been deeply touched with your holding us up in prayer and through your encouragement, solidarity and support. Your constant contact, communication, thoughts, hopes and prayers has given us the strength we need to keep going.

Thank you for helping us to keep hope and our faith for a better tomorrow for the Holy Land.

May the LORD bless you and keep you.
May the LORD let His face shine on you and be gracious to you.
May the LORD show you His face and bring you peace.  (Numbers 6:23-26)

Sincerely,


From all of us at Caritas Jerusalem
