Israel Benevolence Fund, Inc. was birthed in the heart of Ron Aaronson. The LORD spoke to him one morning while running. The message was: “It is more important to feed hungry widows and orphans than it is to plant trees in Israel.” Mr. Aaronson, seeking the next move, responded to further leadings from God and “thus Israel Benevolence Fund, Inc. was born.” Isaiah 58:6-12 tells us to help clothe, feed and encourage others. The Messiah tells us the same thing in Matthew 25.  As He said in that portion of Scripture, when He was hungry, naked, in prison and thirsty, “to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.”    

We can no longer hide our faces from Israel’s orphans/at-risk children, Holocaust survivors, and widows as their cry for help must be answered. Remember, it was the Apostle Paul in the New Testament who thanked the communities of Macedonia and Achaia because they were pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the people of Jerusalem. We have the honor and calling to do the same. (Romans 15:25-27)
