Profile & Programs
Yad Chaya was formed in the summer of 2001 to address the needs of a large contingency of our Jewish brothers and sisters in Israel and the United States. Yad Chaya operates numerous programs to help poor individuals and families who do not otherwise have the ability to adequately cover their expenses – including widows, orphans, large families and poor students. Yad Chaya runs various programs, including: grants, mentoring, holiday, wedding assistance, housing assistance, newborn support and many more.
Since its inception, Yad Chaya has distributed an average of approximately $1,000,000 each year. Yad Chaya operates with absolutely no overhead or operating costs – Yad Chaya is managed and operated entirely by volunteers. All of your donations are used to help those who desperately need it most.
