Your tzedaka transforms the holidays for needy families
Many of us have cherished memories of our families’ special holiday traditions: the cheesecakes on Shavuot, building the family Sukkah, a big Passover Seder...
Nice clothing and unique recipes added to the festive atmosphere that helped shape our loving associations with yom tov, those that many of us will never forget. But in Israel today, tens of thousands of families do not have the budget to provide for new items and celebratory meals that would enable them to create their own happy memories.
For those barely managing to put bread and milk on the table during the week, holiday expenses can spell crisis. Parents are faced with the terrible dilemma of having to choose between eating meager meals without the traditional dishes, or going further into debt in order to have a modest celebration. And with countless needy families fighting to stay afloat as the cost of living climbs, they are struggling more than ever before.
American Friends of Yad Eliezer is an Israeli charity that has worked for over three decades to enable every Jewish family to spend the holidays in joy and dignity each yom tov season. Our valued partnerships with local neighborhood charity funds allow us to discreetly distribute vouchers for chicken, meat, and other holiday foods, as well as for shoes and clothing on an as-needed basis to needy families throughout the country. The assistance transforms sparse family meals into full ones, and somber home environments into joyous ones.
Your tzedaka will contribute to these transformations and give needy children in Israel happy holiday memories.
