Hessed


Fight against precarious living conditions in Jerusalem!
Hessed in everyday's life!

All the donations on line go directly to help the helpless and poor people, the poorest. We use the collected funds to finance our various charitable activities, food, clothing and financial aid (vouchers). Assistance given for Shabbat but also for other events of the Jewish calendar!

Every eve of Shabbat and holidays, we deliver to families food parcels. Our volunteers always make sure to keep families dignity and they help every family exactly according to their needs, depending on the number of children etc.

The appropriate ministries officially endorse our association, and all our accounts are audited and certified by a CPA (official accountant).

EVE OF SABBATH AND JEWISH HOLIDAYS

Food parcels includes : meat, halot, drinks, pasta, rice, vegetables, wine and grape juice, oil, sugar, canned good, flour, milk, baby diapers, and also sweets for the children “likhvod Shabbat or Yom Tov”. Coupons with a value of 50, 100 Shekalim are offered to enable families to make their own purchases according to their specific needs.



PASSOVER

Big delivery of food parcels adapted to the needs of Passover. In each of them, we add matzots, grape juice, wine, harosset, etc. This provides all the ingredients to fill the Passover Plate and to fulfill each “berakha” needed during the “seder”.
