In the past Christian Life Missions has channeled hundreds of thousands of dollars to Israel through various ministries such as the ones below, never taking out one dollar for expenses. This means you can give with confidence that 100% of your donation goes to Bless Israel.
We invite you to bless Israel this month by participating in our next project to help Jews in the Ukraine make aliyah (move to Israel) through a ministry called Ezra International.
In the past 22 years, Ezra International has helped more than 58,000 Jews make aliyah. The ministry is currently working with another 39,000 Jews from the former Soviet Union countries and other parts of Europe and South America who can’t afford the average $360 per person it takes to move to Israel. My longtime friend Pastor Gary Cristofaro tells me the average cost for a couple is $720, and for an entire family, it’s $1,440.
Mel Hoelzle founded Ezra International in 1995 and remains the organization’s president. Gary told me that Ezra International has a four-star charity rating with Charity Navigator, so you can give with confidence.
Our goal is to raise $30,000, which would allow us to sponsor 26 families or 83 individuals. In order to encourage more donors to give, Christian Life Missions has pledged to match each gift up to a total of $15,000. That means half our goal is already committed, so it doubles your donation and helps us move faster to meet our goal. Of course, we hope to raise much more, and if we do, we will sponsor as many Jews as the gifts will provide.
CHARISMA Cares Bless Israel donations are also given to Operation Lifeshield, Magen David Adom, Vision For Israel, & Disaster Relief in Israel.
Through Operation Lifeshield your donation goes directly to placing strong steel reinforced, pre-cast concrete fortified shelters in public areas, such as schools, parks, & senior citizen centers.

In a recent CHARISMA magazine article, Mr. Strang reminds us that the state of the Israel & the Jewish people around the world – now more than ever- are in need of Christian support and love. Rabbi Aaron Rubinger, the leading conservative Rabbi in Orlando share d with Mr. Strang, “Your prayers, moral support, and vocal expressions need to be heard.” In addition he shared that “ Israel defended its own civilians while opposing a cruel, terrorist regime who intentionally attacked Israeli civilians while making use of its own Palestinian people as sacrificial lambs in an effort to gain media points.”
Mr. Strang shares, “ Christians should understand that the ant-Semitic rants and protest in London, Paris, and New York, as well as throughout media, are clogging the newspapers and TV stations with lies and darknesss.” Rabbi Schmuel Bowman, the executive director of Operations Lifeshield stated, “If Christians see their role, their raison d’etre, as bringing the gospel to the world….then their voice must heard and their actions must be felt.” Because of readers like you, who have given to Operation Lifshield, Christians have helped place many bomb shelters in locations where residents constantly need a place to flee for safety.
Thank you for your gifts, and in the words of Rabbi Bowman, “We didn’t know you cared…until you said so.”
