About this organization








Yad Eliezer was founded on the premise that every Jew in Israel is entitled to a life of dignity, self-reliance, and self-respect. Established in 1980 with the single objective of delivering monthly food baskets to hungry families, Yad Eliezer has grown to encompass nineteen economic and social service programs that impact on the lives of over 18,000 families each year


American Friends of Yad Eliezer, in partnership with B'ezri, is a charitable organization whose objective is to combat poverty at its root, through an array of programs that provide critical short-term relief, while facilitating long-term recovery. Among its many initiatives aimed at combating poverty, American Friends of Yad Eliezer subsidizes efforts to feed indigent children, families and the frail and elderly. It contributes to efforts to arrange and disseminate food vouchers to the needy which can be redeemed at local supermarkets. In addition to subsidizing food for the poor, American Friends of Yad Eliezer sponsors job training support that helps recipients complete degrees so they can work toward becoming financially independent. Additionally, American Friends of Yad Eliezer provides cash disbursements to thousands of families for a one-time need. Whether due to a medical emergency, unexpected expense or the need to get through a difficult time, this fund alleviates their financial distress and allows them to focus on real issues. These grants often prevent a one-time crisis from forcing a family into a downward spiral of poverty from which they can never escape. The organization also supports efforts to provide monthly stipends to widows running single parent homes and who, despite government financial assistance, have trouble making ends meet. Our scrupulous management and efficient means of distribution enable us to maintain limited overhead and administrative expenses. Over 96% of funds go directly to needy families. This achievement has earned American Friends of Yad Eliezer the coveted “4-Star Exceptional” rating from Charity Navigator, which rates organizations based on how effectively and responsibly they utilize donations, and to what extent the charity is growing in terms of programs and services.
