Widows and Orphans

Tonight Thousands of Children in Israel Will Go To Sleep Missing Their Fathers

A bus explodes in the center of Tel Aviv and a devoted wife will never look into her husband’s eyes again. A sudden heart attack changes the family forever. A drawn out illness drains a family's emotional and financial resources and leaves them without a father, their most essential source of support. These stories are the stories of Israelis’ lives. In this country, widows and orphans can be found in every neighborhood, and across the spectrum of the population.

For many of Israel's widows and orphans, the pain of their loss is compounded by the daily struggle to simply keep a roof over their heads. Though the primary breadwinner is gone, bills still come and rent is still demanded. Lives that have been broken take time to put back together, but when survival is a daily struggle, healing is an impossible task.

That is, unless Yad Eliezer is in the picture.

Yad Eliezer's Solution

Widow and Orphan Fund in Israel

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 live in hunger. Yad Eliezer also supports over 530 widows and their orphaned children with an average of $600 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.

Service distribution is determined based on criteria including income, expenses, and individual needs. That means that your charity for Israel’s widows and orphans goes directly to those truly in need. Thousands more widows and orphans are waiting for your help so that they can be added to the Widow and Orphan Fund roster. But beyond ensuring that the widows and orphans of Israel do not succumb to despair, your donation gives these struggling families the opportunity to regain a sense of normalcy. We lighten the load, perhaps enough to begin to heal broken hearts and put broken lives back together.
