Widows and Orphans
Aid and Support for Hundreds of Widows and Orphans Every Month
Thanks to the Jack Fogel Orphan Fund and the Keren Chanan and Miriam Vim Widow and Orphan Fund, Yad Eliezer ensures that the widows and orphans of Israel can live with dignity. The Big Brothers and Big Sisters Program brings a father or mother figure back into the lives of bereft children. Food Boxes, Surplus Produce, Shabbat Chicken, and other Yad Eliezer food programs ensure that Israel’s impoverished widows and orphans do not have to live in hunger. Yad Eliezer also supports some 180 widows and orphans with an average of $800 per home every month. Along with Yad Eliezer’s other social welfare programs, the Widow and Orphan Fund receives no Israeli advertisement or media attention in order to maintain utmost discretion for recipients.
Help Them in Honor of Tammie's Bat Mitzvah
In honor of my Bat Mitzvah I have decided that in lieu of gifts donations should be made instead to Yad Eliezer/Keren Yaakov Zev. I realize just how fortunate I am to have two loving parents willing to do anything for me. Unfortunately, some people are not as privileged as I am. I am so blessed and lucky and want to use my Bat Mitzvah as an opportunity to help others.
I have chosen this charity specifically because it is an organization close to home. This charity was created in memory of my grandfather’s brother, Jack Fogel (z'l). I am named after my grandfather, Joseph Fogel (z'l), and wanted to pick an organization related to the family.
I want to thank you all for donating in honor of my Bat Mitzvah and really hope that I raise a substantial amount of money to be able to help the widows and orphans improve their lives.
