High Holiday Donations

The High Holidays bring together the global Jewish family.

This Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, millions will gather around the world to remember what it means to be part of the Jewish Nation. We will celebrate a new year with festive clothing and holiday meals. Yet without your help, thousands of poor families 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 provide 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.

As we welcome the new year, we all hope that it will be filled with goodness and blessing. Let us also reach out and provide goodness and blessing to those who wish for the opportunity to provide nutrirous meals for their children.

This Rosh Hashana, include the poor of Israel in your celebration of the Jewish New Year. discover how you make a difference to children like saraleh

Start Your Year Off Right With Yad Eliezer

Your donations will allow Yad Eliezer to provide chicken and supermarket vouchers to thousands of people in Israel this Rosh HaShana. Bulk chicken purchases allow Yad Eliezer to purchase large quantities at cost price and distribute them all over the country.

Needy families receive a case of chickens and supermarket vouchers worth $180 to feed them throughout the High Holidays. Families struggling with the most extreme cases of poverty also receive financial aid. In order to avoid embarrassment, discrete neighborhood distributors throughout Israel welcome the poor to their homes to pick up the chickens and vouchers.

Last year, we distributed over $1 million worth of chicken and other holiday essentials to thousands of needy families. This Rosh HaShana, with your help, we hope to make an even bigger difference.

Let’s celebrate together.
