CARING FOR POOR JEWS IN ISRAEL

Sadly, there are hundreds of thousands of Jewish children living below the poverty line in Israel today.  This shocking fact is hard to accept, yet one in three Israeli children – approximately 800,000 boys and girls – face hunger every day in Israel. Under the leadership of Rabbi Tuly Weisz, the Israel365 Charity Fund is one of the leading organizations in Israel today that provides for the poor and needy of Israel.

The Israel365 Charity Fund provides food baskets and gift cards around Jewish holidays and all year round. Rabbi Tuly Weisz sees the work of distributing food in Israel, as a Biblical obligation.

The prophet Isaiah speaks about the necessity of caring for the poor and hungry.

Share your bread with the hungry, And take the poor into your home; When you see the naked, clothe him, and do not ignore your own kin. (Isaiah 58:7)

In Israel today, food insecurity impacts single parents, frail elderly men and women with mobility issues, young couples just starting out, the mentally ill, orphans, people struggling with job loss or poor health.

To compound the agony, Israelis who have trouble getting enough to eat often have other challenges arising from poverty. They may live in substandard housing and not be able to afford necessary maintenance, such as repairing broken windows or removing mold from their walls after a rainy winter. They may not be able to make a wedding or even a holiday meal.

Be Blessed By Giving

In multiple places, the Bible blesses those who are generous with helping to fill the urgent needs of others.
The generous man is blessed, For he gives of his bread to the poor. (Proverbs 22:9)
The Bible’s message is that helping those who have less is the most worthy use of money in the eyes of God. To emphasize this point even more, the faithful tithe their earnings and give a minimum of 10% of their income to charity, understanding that for every dollar they earn, $0.90 is for their needs and the rest was given to them by God to use for caring for the poor and feeding the hungry.

Israel365 takes care of the poor and needy in Israel on a daily basis, and to participate in our life saving work donate today.

Boots on the Ground

Rabbi Tuly Weisz, founder of Israel365, spearheads efforts year-round to introduce donors to individuals and projects here in Israel that are worthy of your support.

In October 2019, Rabbi Tuly met with Osnat, a single mother of eight children in Bet Shemesh. She has so many challenges feeding her family, Rabbi Tuly was moved to help her. Osnat shared that reciting Psalms each day encourages her to deal with her difficult circumstances.

Hear, Hashem, when I cry aloud; have mercy on me, answer me. (Psalms 27:7)

Seeing poverty up close can be uncomfortable, but not all the projects the Israel365 Charity Fund undertakes are sad. Some are uplifting, like when Rabbi Tuly dressed up in a huge sombrero and went to a local grocery store to buy holiday treats for orphans or when he helped arrange for 2,800 holiday baskets to be distributed to children and families throughout Israel.

Rabbi Tuly often takes Christian leaders visiting Israel, such as Pastor Jentezen Franklin , to local food pantries to pack food baskets for needy families in Jerusalem.

One of the happiest activities is the support that the Israel365 Charity Fund gave to two sisters who help Jerusalem’s poor and needy brides by lending them wedding gowns. As Rabbi Tuly said, “We are seeing prophecy come to life, the brides and the grooms rejoicing when we are helping young couples get started with their married lives.”

The sound of mirth and gladness, the voice of bridegroom and bride, the voice of those who cry, “Give thanks to the lord of Hosts, for Hashem is good, for His kindness is everlasting!” as they bring thanksgiving offerings to the House of Hashem. For I will restore the fortunes of the land as of old—said Hashem. Jeremiah 33:11

Rabbi Tuly and the Israel Charity Fund are your boots on the ground, finding and funding worthy projects to care for the poor and feed the hungry throughout Israel.
