Yad Eliezer believes in helping people start again
If you’ve ever passed a busy playground, you’ve undoubtedly heard all kinds of things being shouted out by the kids playing there. One common expression repeated countless times over is right after something “didn’t count” or “wasn’t fair”. The expression? “Do over!”
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if, as adults we could get a Do Over anytime something didn’t go exactly as we had planned?
Yad Eliezer’s Job Training program provides a form of Do Over for qualifying applicants who are working to better their lives by studying toward a degree or certification, but need further tuition assistance to complete their courses. Our Microfinancing initiative provides financial help for small business owners who need an extra boost to get (or keep) their enterprise going.
This crucial program is literally a life changing one.
Since 2004, it has provided men and women in Israel with skills they need to become productive in a trade, profession or business, becoming self sufficient with the goal of breaking the cycle of poverty in the home. We believe in providing help across the spectrum of people's lives, including the ability to start again-which places us among the top Jewish charities. And what keeps us running are the contributions provided by generous donors.
Please consider investing in people’s potential by donating to our Job Training fund.
With unemployment at an all time high, your help is needed more than ever!
Give struggling men and women their own Do Over.
About 75 people are supported through this program each year.
Yad Eliezer's Almanos Pesach Campaign is working urgently to bring $500 in relief to women in our Keren Almanos, in time for yom tov. This aid will help them purchase Pesach foods and other yom tov essentials for their households.
With impoverished kids stuck at home, leaving parents unable to go to work, the loss of income makes an already difficult situation even worse. No money to buy food or pay the electric bill makes summer unbearable. We can bring relief.
