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.

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.
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.”
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.
