Jake* was incarcerated last Rosh Hashanah, when he received a ray of hope from an inspiring holiday visit with Aleph. “Thank you for showing up with so much love and happiness. Despite being on lockdown, we were able to pray together each day and night in the chapel, with the two rabbis that came. It was truly an amazing bright spot in a trying time.”
Hope has the remarkable power to uplift and guide people through the most challenging circumstances. For those like Jake, separated from their communities and families, any glimmer of support becomes immeasurably precious.
This month, Aleph is sending groups of rabbis and volunteers to dozens of prisons across the country to blow the shofar, lead inspiring holiday services, and cultivate an atmosphere of community and connection for more than 350 people who would otherwise be alone. Additionally, our military department is reaching thousands of Jewish service members stationed in Bahrain, Djibouti, Qatar, and other remote locations. Whether our troops receive a shofar, siddurim, or a pop-up sukkah, they are reminded of their ability to be connected to their heritage even while serving far from home.
Our programs are a vital source of hope and support for so many who feel alone. But we can’t run these critical programs without your help. For those in isolation and for those without a voice, you can be the key to unlocking their hope. Partner with Aleph today and your support will be a lifeline to someone who has nowhere else to turn.
