Let your High Holidays mean more by sharing the celebration with the poor of Israel.
The High Holidays bring together the global Jewish family. This Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, millions will gather in synagogues around the world to remember what it means to be part of the nation. We will celebrate a new year with festive clothing and holiday meals. Yet without our help, thousands of the working poor in Israel will not be able to share in our celebration.
Struggling against a cold economic climate and an increasingly inequitable job market, many of these families will be unable to furnish even a chicken for the family holiday meals. The hunger of every other day will characterize these special days as well – unless we stand up for what Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur really mean.
This Rosh Hashana, include the poor of Israel in your celebration of the Jewish New Year.
Start Your Year Off Right with Yad Eliezer
Our Annual Report affirms that your 2010 High Holiday donations allowed Yad Eliezer to provide the poor of Israel with almost a million dollars in food and market vouchers. This Pesach, you upped the ante with donations of well over one million dollars, which provided assistance to more than 8,000 families.
Now the continuing fall-out of the economic decline has raised the bar. Less jobs mean more hunger. That is where the Yad Eliezer family steps in.
Your dollar will go further thanks to an anonymous donor who will match every donation for holiday chicken by 50%. Our goal is to provide $1 Million in chicken, supermarket vouchers, and the joy of the High Holidays to some 12,000 hungry families in over seventy cities throughout the country.
Your open heart is the difference between hunger and normalcy for thousands of Jewish children. Let this year be a Yad Eliezer year.
Let’s celebrate together.
