Yad Yitzhok - is an Israeli fund to help Russian-speaking families in need.
Yad Yitzhok fund constantly supports the neediest Russian immigrants. We take care of widows, widowers, disabled, pensioners, large families and single-parent families.
These are the main fields of our activity:
· Economic assistance to cover basic needs of poor Jewish families, such as electricity, water, heating, medicine, clothing, furniture, heating, etc.;
· Assistance to families of women who gave birth;
· Weekly economic assistance to cover Shabbat expenses;
· Wholly or partly payment of wedding expenses.
Every Jew must help your neighbor.
The sages say - "All Jews are responsible for each other." One of the three pillars of the world is good, that is, the capacity for compassion - the criterion of the soul of morality. Helping one's neighbor, we become like Gd, who created the world in order to share their good. For centuries, Jews give for this purpose from 10% to 20% of their income - it is a donation in Judaism called "tzedakah." This distinguishes our nation from others, when we single family in which all need to help each other.
The uniqueness of Yad Yitzhok fund
Yad Yitzhok is unique among Russian-speaking organizations in Israel, as well as among many other Israeli charity organizations.
Most of Russian-speaking organizations in Israel are destined directly to kiruv (bringing the people closer to the Torah) and the spread of Torah. Undoubtedly, the mission of these institutions is extremely important, but Yad Yitzhok’s activity is equally important. Our fund has undertaken the task to support those who already study the Torah, as well as those who are in a crisis. Yad Yitzhok helps not only financially, but also morally.
Why is Yad Yitzhok unique among other charities? We know all of our wards in their faces. We communicate with them personally and come to their homes. We get familiar with their way of life and have a more detailed look at the situation. We try to both help each family by certain amount of money or food for Shabbat and consider all their problems and needs.
When dealing with young and healthy people, the fund helps those who want to change something in their lives and to achieve success and self-actualization.
We also help some of our wards to get a job. If Yad Yitzhok would have sufficient bankroll for the maintenance of its projects, we will be able to provide jobs for those who are in need.
Our wards need our help. By helping another, a person becomes like the G-d. Those who show mercy to their neighbor will be rewarded by mercy toward themselves from the Heaven.
