PESACH

Freedom From Poverty?


Pesach celebrates freedom.
Poverty steals it.

It also takes away dignity, destroys any sense of normalcy, and fills homes with blame, frustration, and despair.

For Israeli families who already struggle to cover their most minimal daily needs like food, clothing and utilities throughout the year, there's nowhere for them to find extra funds to purchase matza, wine and special foods for Pesach.

The season of freedom ends up becoming stressful and oppressive, making it a daunting time of year with a beautiful holiday that is simply impossible to celebrate. 

By donating to our Pesach campaign, you can bring the experience of celebration back to the holiday, for people in need. 

This year a generous donor has offered to match funds of up to $200,000, so every donation will have double the impact.

Our Solution


Your donation to Yad Eliezer's Pesach campaign will provide supermarket vouchers to thousands of people in Israel this Pesach, helping them purchase holiday basics such as matza, chicken, wine and other essentials. Families in extreme poverty also receive supplemental financial aid. In order to avoid embarrassment, discrete neighborhood distributors throughout the country welcome recipients into their homes to pick up the vouchers.

Last year, we distributed over $1,000,000 worth of food coupons, helping thousands of needy families, more than 1,000 agunot and grushot, plus many other desperately poor people get what they needed to make their holidays joyous.

 
This Pesach, with your help, we hope to distribute even more.

Give the gift of freedom. 
Double your celebration by sharing your freedom with the hungry of Israel.
