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 the lives of over 18,000 families each year.
Each component of Yad Eliezer’s comprehensive welfare system — which includes nationwide distribution of essential food, clothing, and household items, job training, and child mentoring programs — contributes towards the fulfillment of its mandate to engender economic recovery and social development in Israel.
Yad Eliezer’s mandate is to help families cope with financial difficulties and to empower them to break the cycle of poverty and achieve self-sufficiency. Thanks to job training and other assistance, many families who were recipients of Yad Eliezer’s food programs are now donors to Yad Eliezer.
