It's time you knew about EFRAT.
It is an Israeli charity that saves babies that would otherwise be aborted.
Did you know there are close to 50,000 abortions in Israel every year.
Many of these abortions could be prevented, if only the woman was provided some basic social and financial support.
Last year alone, EFRAT saved the lives of 1,806 Jewish children in Israel.
If we had twice our budget we could have saved twice as many children.
U.S. Senators and Congressmen Honor the EFAT-C.R.I.B. Organization
May 25, 2007
(Apr. 25, Washington D.C.) Six United States senators and six congressmen hosted a luncheon today on Capitol Hill to honor Dr. Eli Schussheim, President of Israel's Committee for the Rescue of Israel's Babies-Efrat, in celebration of the organization's 30th anniversary and the lives of over 25,000 Jewish children saved since its inception. Gathered in the standing-room only reception room in the Senate's main building, dignitaries and Efrat's supporters celebrated Efrat's winning formula to save Israeli babies from abortion in circumstances where the mother's first choice is to continue with her pregnancy, but does not feel financially or emotionally able to do so. By offering to supply all of a baby's and mother's needs for the first year and possibly beyond, coupled with emotional support from a trained volunteer, Efrat's helped establish a new generation of families.
