The Keren Almonos distributes monthly stipends to widows with children living at home, enabling them to provide for their families with dignity. Each widow’s situation is carefully assessed to determine the amount of money she needs to complete her monthly budget. Funds are transferred directly into her bank account, sparing her any embarrassment or inconvenience.
In addition, the Keren Almanos assists widows with one-time expenses such as urgent dental care, bar mitzvahs & weddings for their children, medical treatment, emergencies and especially expensive holidays. COVID 19 has damaged so many families, and we are trying our best to keep up with the need.
OUR GOAL is to reach out to all struggling widows in Israel who are taking care of their children. We want them to know that they can rely on our help, which is given with respect and sensitivity.
Currently there are 867 women in this Keren and we support them and their 5600+ children with vital funds, keeping their homes stable and helping them live with self-respect.
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.
