There are fewer than 200,000 Holocaust survivors in Israel today. A shocking 25% of these survivors live below the poverty line and so it is one of the main goals of the Israel365 Charity Fund to support impoverished Holocaust Survivors living today in Israel.
Some Holocaust Survivors lack sufficient and nutritious food, others adequate and durable shelter, and still more lack for both – not to mention those who cannot receive the health care they need. Israeli welfare authorities recognize these survivors to be in need; still, many of them struggle when they ought to be comfortable. “While their health is failing, their needs are increasing” said Rabbi Weisz.
Many Holocuast Survivors sadly go unnoticed and are therefore improperly cared for in Israel today. Worsening the tragedy of this situation still more is that even when many survivors are eligible for state assistance, they cannot access that assistance because of mobility limitations or other encumbrances. Social isolation can lead to being isolated from aid.
When it comes to the Holocaust, we vow to “Never Forget,” yet forgotten is precisely the word that comes to mind when referring to those Holocaust Survivors living below the poverty line.
To assist a needy Holocaust Survivor, please donate today to the Israel365 Charity Fund.

A letter from our founder, Rabbi Tuly Weisz
I started Israel365 in 2012 as an email to friends and family. The goal was to connect the Lovers of Israel with the Land and People of Israel, every day of the year.
“It is a land which Hashem God looks after, on which Hashem your God always keeps His eye, from year’s beginning to year’s end.” (Deuteronomy 11:12)
Ten years later, Israel 365 has blossomed. We now bring the Land of the Bible into the homes and hearts of millions of Jews and Christians around the world. Our readers love our daily emails, our Israel Bible, and the causes we support. Our regular charity projects in Israel include renovating the apartments of Holocaust survivors, programs for IDF soldiers, and assisting terror victims financially. We also plant trees to beautify the Land, and support farmers who observe the Sabbatical (Shemittah) year.
Please join us and bring the blessings of the Land and People of Israel to the whole world.
“I will bless those who bless you…And all the families of the earth will bless themselves by you.” (Genesis 12:3)
