Tonight One Third of Israeli Children Will Go To Bed Hungry
Over seven hundred thousand children in Israel live below the poverty line. But poverty doesn’t begin with hunger. Hunger is a symptom. So are depression, disease, and abuse.
Since the Weisel family began distributing weekly food boxes out of their home in 1980, Yad Eliezer's charity initiatives have grown to combat many symptoms of poverty. Israel's largest hunger-relief agency is also one of the only comprehensive anti-poverty networks impacting the entire nation.
Although poverty rehabilitation begins with our food boxes, it doesn't end with them. In-house collaboration between our nineteen economic and social welfare programs leads to hunger relief and poverty rehabilitation with lasting effects. With your help, over 20,000 Yad Eliezer families are breaking the cycle of poverty once and for all.FIND OUT MORE

BLOG: Inbox: A letter from Taiwan to Yad Eliezer
This is a very moving letter that we received at Yad Eliezer. The original was written in surprisingly good Hebrew from a non-Jewish man in Taiwan. I was particularly touched by the end of the letter where he mentions the qualities that the Jewish people are known for- it seems to me that those three are the essence of what Yad Eliezer is all about. It is amazing that people from all over the world who share those qualities come together and find meaning by connecting through Yad Eliezer. + FIND OUT MORE
