Jews to Protest IDF fundraiser in Toronto – Today

Orthodox Jews will be demonstrating today, October 11, outside the Toronto Center of Art, 5040 Yonge Street, Toronto, at 6 PM.

TORONTO, CANADA, October 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Orthodox Jews from the anti-Zionist Jewish community of Canada will be demonstrating today, October 11, outside the Toronto Center of Art, 5040 Yonge Street, Toronto, at 6 PM.

The group will be conveying the message that the Israeli Defense Force [IDF] is not in favor of the Jewish people.

“The IDF is a destructive force to the Jewish people and to the Jewish nation”, Said Rabbi Aron Jacobowitz, a spokesman for the demonstration.

"We will be bringing to the attention of the attendees that Judaism and Zionism, the Jewish people and the State of Israel, are not one and the same, in fact they are diametrically opposed.

"Judaism is a religion of serving the Almighty, while Zionism is a political movement of nationalism. For centuries Jewish people lived in the Holy Land with the only goal of practicing their religion and living in total peace with their neighbors.

"In fact, according to Jewish belief, Jews are in a Divinely decreed exile and are forbidden to create their own State or to provoke against nations. We are forbidden to wage wars against any nation or to shed blood.

"In addition to all it has done to other nations, which is in total violation of Judaism and opposed by masses of Jews worldwide, the State of Israel recently attempts to force religious Jewish youths to physically take part in all its criminal acts and to assimilate them into the Zionist secular society. Whoever refuses to join them, or stands up to protest, are brutalized, harassed and imprisoned.

"By attempting to force our communities to serve in the IDF, the Israeli government is trampling on our religious rights. By oppressing non-violent protestors, they are trampling on our freedom of speech.

"When the state of Israel professes to act in the name of the Jewish people, it is exacerbating anti-Semitism, causing harm, hate and conflict amongst so many Peoples.

"This is one more link in the long chain of systematically uprooting our religion. They did so originally with the Jews of Yemen, Tunisia, and the rest of the Middle East and now they attempt to do so with the remnants of the God-fearing communities in the Holy Land.

"It is criminal when these people call themselves Jewish, supposedly representing the entire Jewish people and it is hypocritical when they misuse the Jewish religion for their benefit. They do this all to mislead good hearted philanthropists, into supporting their movement. Also to stifle opposition, who are fearful of being accused of anti-Semitism "

A Woman’s Story of Faith and the Ripple Effect of Giving Provides Clean Water Saving Lives in Uganda

Team RCIA at 2018 Run4Water

Doyle Addresses Attendees at Wells of Life Annual Meeting

San Francisco Solano Church RCIA is Top Fundraising Team from

Patricia Doyle's RCIA Group in Southern Calif. Funds 7 Water Wells Through Wells of Life

Patricia Doyle believes there were mothers in Uganda praying desperately for clean water for their children when God touched her heart over two years ago.”

— Patricia Doyle

MISSION VIEJO, CA, UNITED STATES, October 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Patricia Doyle believes there were mothers in Uganda praying desperately for clean water for their children when God touched her heart over two years ago. Her participation in a 5K run in Southern California began a ripple effect that would ultimately fund seven water wells and save thousands of lives in Uganda, Africa.

In April 2017, a friend from church invited Patricia to volunteer for the Run4Water fundraiser benefiting the nonprofit organization Wells of Life. It was a day that would prove to be life changing.

Shocked by learning that a child dies every 21 seconds from a lack of clean water in Africa, Doyle became energized to take action at the passionate plea of Wells of Life founder Nick Jordan. She knew in that moment that she’d personally donate and get involved, but she wondered how she could spread the word to others.

Throw a stone in water and the ripple effect will begin.

Doyle oversees the RCIA (The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) at her church, San Francisco Solano in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. The program consists of classes for adults who want to join the Catholic faith. The 2017 fall session was about to begin and she’d been searching for something tangible to increase the students’ understanding of the word Catholic, meaning universal. Social justice is a big part of their teaching and she immediately thought of Wells of Life.

She shared the Wells of Life story with the group and they gave unanimous approval to form a team in the 2018 Run4Water. Their team goal was to raise $6,000; the actual cost to fund one well that provides clean water to 1000 Ugandan villagers for about 25 years. Overhead costs are covered by the organization.

Nick Jordan was the group’s dynamic social justice guest speaker which resulted in a funded well by a couple in attendance. One week later, another couple decided to fund a well.

Doyle told a close friend about the project. She and her husband had lost a son two years before and decided to fund a well in his memory. The couple reached out to relatives and another well was generously funded in their son’s honor.

The ripple effect has already resulted in four wells funded.

One young couple in the RCIA class had limited means but was determined to fund a well in memory of their beloved grandmother who had just passed away. They passionately reached out to family members but only raised $2000. When the rest of the class heard of their goal and passion, they stepped in and the remaining $4000 was raised.
With five wells now funded, the initial couple that donated a well connected Wells of Life with their company’s matching donor program and another well was funded. That same man shared Wells of Life at a retreat and a gentlemen in the group was inspired to fund yet another well.

Seven wells will provide clean water to over 7000 villagers saving countless lives!

Doyle is leading a new RCIA class this fall and the group has already committed to participate in the 2019 Run4Water. The busy real estate broker and 2016-2017 Catholic Woman of the Year for other philanthropic and volunteer efforts, Doyle sits on a panel for the Orange County Catholic Diocese and is an advisory board member for Wells of Life.

In late September, she hosted an event for Wells of Life in her home to spread the word to others. Every attendee donated to the organization and many joined the Water Warrior monthly giving campaign pledging $30, $60 or $100 to sustain and fund water wells in Uganda.

While Wells of Life is making a tremendous impact, an estimated 24 million Ugandans (Water.org) still lack clean water and 1 in 5 children under the age of five die from a waterborne illness.

To learn more about Wells of Life, visit www.wellsoflife.org.

About Wells of Life Wells of Life is a Christian organization founded on the belief water is a basic human right and should be available to all people regardless of where they live. Founded in 2008, the provision of clean water is viewed as the catalyst to free communities from poverty and progress to sustainable and healthy living. Their mission is supported through a variety of partnerships with schools, churches and businesses.

Tampa Bay Volunteer Ministers of the Church of Scientology Readied for Disaster Relief

Clearwater Volunteer Ministers of the Church of Scientology distributed food and water to residents in the Greenwood neighborhood after Hurricane Irma left most of the area without power.

Volunteer Ministers are trained to help others achieve relief from life’s travails and gain new personal strength as well.”

— L. Ron Hubbard

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, October 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On October 10, more than 50 Tampa Bay area Scientology Volunteer Ministers (VMs) met at their center in downtown Clearwater to see how they could aid disaster relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Michael.

“There are three main areas where volunteers are needed,” said Glendy Goodsell, the Executive Director of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers of Florida. “We are looking for people who can go to the Panhandle and assist on disaster relief, more people to help man a crisis hotline and more to put together hygiene kits for hurricane survivors.”

VMs and other volunteer organizations will work in cooperation with local authorities to provide assistance as needed. In earlier disasters, VMs helped clear downed trees, passed out ice and water and provide spiritual assistance in the form of assists.

“Assists do not replace medical care,” said Goodsell. “The fact is, after any necessary medical treatment, the individual himself has an enormous capacity to influence the body and its well-being or lack of it. Scientology Assists were developed by L. Ron Hubbard and are actions undertaken to help a person confront physical difficulties.”

The VMs were contacted by the Volunteer Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD) to help man the crisis lines. “When someone needs help after the storm,” explained VOAD Tampa Bay’s Secretary and veteran VM Judy Fagerman, “the hotline provides a place where a person can call and then get help with whatever is needed – removing debris or getting food and water as examples.”

The Volunteer Ministers program was created by L. Ron Hubbard in the mid-1970s with the mandate to help “on a volunteer basis by restoring purpose, truth and spiritual values to the lives of others.” Mr. Hubbard further described the Volunteer Minister as a person who “does not shut his eyes to the pain, evil and injustice of existence.” Volunteer Ministers are trained to help others achieve relief from life’s travails and gain new personal strength as well.
In carrying out its mission, the global force of Volunteer Ministers has responded to every major disaster worldwide since 2001. The Clearwater and Tampa Bay Volunteer Ministers played a leading role in relief efforts following the World Trade Center tragedy in New York, the South Asian 2004 tsunami, Hurricanes Katrina and Irma and hundreds of other disaster sites.

The single most destructive element present in our current culture is drugs.”

— L. Ron Hubbard

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World used music to spread the Truth About Drugs message, to inspire people, especially youth, to lead a drug-free life. The concert featured Jonathan Miller and Hana-Li and was attended by over 280 people from the Tampa Bay area. Guests enjoyed refreshments, danced into the evening and were reached by the important message, “You can have fun without using alcohol and drugs.”
One guest, a school teacher – said, “It was so great to see all the kids and youth dancing and having fun with their families and friends in this safe environment. It shows them they can have fun without drugs or alcohol!”

Another guest, who works in the community said, “This was such a great concert and great cause! I have been using the Truth About Drugs materials as they are a great tool and I will continue to use them to educate youth on the dangers of drugs.”

After the concert guests were encouraged to take complimentary Truth About Drugs booklets and DVDs providing facts to keep themselves and others drug-free.
These materials serve as the backbone of the international “Truth About Drugs” educational program. All the proceeds raised from the concert will be used to spread the Truth About Drugs program to at-risk youth, educators, law enforcement personnel and community leaders throughout the state of Florida.

President of The Foundation of a Drug-Free World’s Florida Chapter, Julieta Santagostino, stated: “When young people have their questions about drugs fully answered, and are given the ‘truth’, they are much more likely to make good decisions concerning taking drugs in the first place. Humanitarian and Scientology founder,
Mr. L. Ron Hubbard once said, ‘The single most destructive element present in our current culture is drugs’ and this is what we are fighting against.”
