Sukkot is the grand culmination of the High Holidays. Surrounded by the cheerful walls of our sukka, we enjoy the company of friends and family, while taking part in festive meals. But how do we ensure that the celebration has a spiritual side to it as well?
One of the best ways is by reaching out to families in need. As they look around their neighborhoods, noticing the sukkot on balconies everywhere, hearing the singing and sounds of celebration emanating from them, it can be a difficult time. They wish they could celebrate, too.
Donations to Yad Eliezer's Sukkot fund will transform the holiday by providing poor families throughout Israel with coupons that enable them to shop for yom tov essentials like grape juice, fresh produce, chicken and other foods, making the holiday really feel like a holiday. They will be able to sit at a festive table and feel the happiness that is such a fundamental part of Sukkot.
And they will do it with dignity.
For over 20 years, we have been catering simple but elegant weddings for couples who otherwise could not afford it. To date Yad Eliezer has helped over 13,000 couples celebrate their special day with dignity.
While we celebrate the Holidays, IDF soldiers defend us on the front lines. Some of them live in poverty and cannot afford proper holiday meals. Let’s not forget them. Let's give them a taste of the holidays!
