Joseph’s Storehouse Project
Through the Joseph’s Storehouse Project we provide aid to the poor and needy Jewish and Arab people living in the nation of Israel. Many of them are struggling as orphans and widows, homeless and handicapped, senior citizens and geriatric patients as well as new immigrants and victims of terrorism and their families. Through the relief and assistance of The Joseph Storehouse; food, clothing, toiletries, kitchen and household items, blankets, towels, linens, and toys are some of the supplies we distribute on a weekly basis. Our goal is to bring relief during times of crisis for those living under Israel’s “poverty line” and also providing the general population lacking life’s basic necessities. The needs arise as a result of terrorism, war, unemployment, health problems, personal needs, increased immigration – to only name a few. Each case is unique, requiring the personal care and attention that we sincerely offer.
We are active in these areas:
✡ Family Welfare (helping families)
✡ Pack to School (helping school children)
✡ Helping Victims of Terrorism
✡ Emergency and Medical Relief
Your donations help many who simply need a hand up.
Hands of Mercy
Hands of Mercy is a Humanitarian work located in the South of Israel. It plays a critical role in restoration projects in the midst of rockets and missiles being fired from Gaza. Through Hands of Mercy, we provide humanitarian aid, ongoing food and economic assistance to the poor affected by the Gaza conflict in the southern cities.
Chevra, meaning friendship, is dedicated to helping the multitudes of Jewish people throughout the former Soviet Union, that are facing persecution, being denied jobs, housing, food, and medical care. It is estimated there are thousands of survivors of the Holocaust still alive today and are subsisting in incredibly desperate situations. Each month about one percent of these people pass on. Too often, their last years have been spent in nearly the same conditions in which they survived in the camps. These people, who suffered so much, are continuing to suffer — don’t they deserve better? We can help ease their last years. We can do something to care for their daily needs supporting them in tangible ways.
Chevra provides the following services:
✡ Soup Kitchens (in the former Soviet Union)
✡ Aliyah Project (from the former Soviet Union)
✡ Israel Housing Project
Jewish People living in the former Soviet Union have had a very difficult life of persecution and deprivation. For a Jew, Aliyah, immigrating to Israel, is a dream and a hope of a better life. This is where the Aliyah assistance program of Chevra comes to the rescue. We assist all Jews seeking to make Aliyah by transporting them to boats or airports. This most often includes helping them locate and collect all their personal information and documents necessary for filling out the paperwork to acquire their passports, and any other red tape they might encounter. Though there are still Jews returning from Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union, there are also Jewish people in other parts in the world wishing to return. We seek to help wherever the need is.
