We need your help for our crucial matching opportunity!
HOLIDAY PROGRAM FOR IDF SOLDIERS
Every year Yad Eliezer partners with a NY based foundation in an extraordinary matching program, transforming the holidays from a time of anxiety to a time of celebration for impoverished soldiers-of which there are thousands.
This year, we are once again working as urgently as possible to bring relief to 3,200 of these soldiers through this program!
In order to do so, we must raise $250,000 by September 10. If we do, our partner will match that amount to $500,000, which will be distributed to needy soldiers throughout Israel in the form of supermarket gift cards. This incredible amount will transform the holidays, bringing immense relief for soldiers who would otherwise be unable to purchase festive foods for their families’ tables.
The health crisis has only increased the poverty in homes of needy soldiers. Widespread unemployment has further devastated their situations, whether their own parents lost minimally paying jobs, or they, as breadwinners, became jobless themselves. They need our help now, more than ever.
We’ve reached 60% of our goal, but your help can get us to 100%-translating to half a million dollars in food aid for soldiers who work so hard to protect us all.
Time is running out.
Join us to bring relief and express our appreciation
to thousands of soldiers this High Holiday season.
Take a look at the impact your help can make: “My chayalim are so grateful to your donors! You have no idea how happy your help is making them-especially these days, when the situation is so hard, with so many soldiers’ parents and spouses unemployed...this aid is helping them very, very, very much with holiday expenses. Please send on our thanks, m’kol ha’lev (with all our hearts)!” Moshe K., IDF officer
The Almanos Fund helps widows in need, who still have children at home, with costs ranging from daily living expenses to medical treatments and weddings for their kids. Help us alleviate some of their pain by lightening some of their burden.
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.
