Food for Yom Tov.

One Week Campaign through
Aseres Y'mei Teshuvah.

Volunteer Driven. No Overhead.

In the midst of Yom Tov season, members of our Far Rockaway and 5 Towns community are once again learning of frantic financial desperation of many of our brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisrael.

Last Pesach, our community came together for an ambitious, last-minute initiative, to address the serious financial desperation in Eretz Yisrael.
In a powerful showing of generosity, our community, all in under 36 hours, raised close to $100,000 of much needed tzedakah funds.

We are coordinating with the local on-the-ground gaba'ai tzedakah, with whom we have successfully worked with in the past, to quickly and efficiently distribute, a minimum 1,000-shekel food voucher to each of these families to help cover their groceries over the Yom Tov season.

The community funds usually raise the needed tzedakah from within their own communities, but, unfortunately, given the pandemic's severe and prolonged impact on the Israeli economy and the loss of income for so many, the local funds simply cannot cover even their basic needs. The community funds have been inundated with new families seeking financial assistance and regrettably, given their budgetary constraints, they have no choice other than to turn away a significant amount of those families in need

Together with the local gaba’ai tzedakah with whom we are working, we have identified over 600 anxious and worried families who lack the funds for even the most basic of Yom Tov staples.
