Each week on Shabbat, the Project Amichai Israel Charity Committee will recommend one or more Israeli charities to support during this critical time. The Committee is currently recommending the following charities to support.  Every gift, large and small, matters.

Leket - Israel's Food Bank:

With over 50,000 volunteers each year, Leket collects food from farms, agricultural storehouses, cafeterias, and event venues and distributes it to over 200 organizations around the country.  They feed the secular and orthodox, Jews and Arabs.  When the war began, Leket promised to provide food and other essentials to everyone in the south and everyone in Israel relocated by the war. Click here to donate to Leket.


Shaar HaNegev:

The Israel Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism is mobilizing aid for those directly affected in the Gaza (Shaar HaNegev) region and across central and southern Israel.  Synagogues and members are offering housing and refuge, and supporting traumatized residents in various capacities. Please help this local movement to provide support on the ground.  Click here to donate to Shaar HaNegev.


Friends of the Israel Defence Forces:

Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) is a non-political, non-military organization that provides for wellbeing of the soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), veterans and family members. Established in 1981 by a group of Holocaust survivors, FIDF is a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation that operates 26 regional offices in the United States with headquarters in New York City. FIDF is a single organization authorized to collect charitable donations on behalf of the soldiers of the IDF across the United States. As their true and only partners, FIDF is responding to their most urgent needs for humanitarian support which currently include armored ambulances, field hospitals, plasma, and other life-saving supplies.

Magen David Adom:

In the United States, disaster relief, ambulance, and blood services are handled by an array of organizations. In Israel, there’s one organization that does it all — Magen David Adom. Although MDA’s role is mandated by the Israeli government, it’s not a government agency. As Israel’s official representative to the International Red Cross, Magen David Adom’s role precludes it from accepting governmental support for its general operations. Because of this arrangement, MDA relies on support from donors, including those from the United States, to keep its dispatch systems, training, and equipment the best in the world.
Your donations provide the ambulances, ambulances, protective vests and helmets, and the critical supplies MDA needs right now.
