We need your help for our crucial matching opportunity!
HIGH HOLIDAYS PROGRAM FOR IDF SOLDIERS - 2022
Every year American Friends of Yad Eliezer | B'ezri partners with a N.Y. based foundation in an extraordinary matching program, transforming the holidays from a time of anxiety to a time of celebration for impoverished IDF soldiers-of which there are thousands.
The High Holidays are quickly approaching, so our program is in full swing! Once again we are working as urgently as possible to help 3,150 of these soldiers including those from disadvantaged homes, married soldiers who can't make ends meet for their families, lone soldiers who have no family in the picture at all, and others. We are driven to provide them with support: Critical aid that will enable them to purchase food for the Yamim Tovim with dignity, so they can truly experience the simcha of the holidays.
In order to do so, we must raise $250,000 by October 9th. Our partner will match that amount to $500,000, which will be distributed to struggling soldiers throughout Israel in the form of supermarket gift cards. Half a million dollarswill bring invaluable relief to soldiers who would otherwise be unable to shop for holiday foods for their tables.
Our efforts will ensure that they can!
The recent jump in food prices & the cost of living, accrued debt from months of pandemic unemployment and myriad other factors have worsened the situation in IDF homes that were already living in great need. Thankfully we are here to help through this program, which makes such an impact that hopeful - yet urgent - requests from soldiers began coming in, weeks ago.
Please join us! Together we can bring relief,
a feeling of normalcy and a promising start to the New Year for 3,150 soldiers.
Take a look at the power of your tzedaka:
“I wanted to thank you very, very much for the holiday help! Thank you for letting us know that you appreciate us and
that you are looking out for us. Especially now, when everything is harder - buying food and paying bills is more difficult than ever
before for my family, this is incredibly helpful. It's thanks to this supportthat we will be able to get what we need for the Chagim.” -Assaf K., IDF soldier
