Yad Ezrah Chessed Organization was founded over 60 years ago by the Jerusalem-based wondrous tzadik Rav Asher Freund zt”l. Rav Asher dedicated himself to helping each Jew, wherever and whoever he may be. He was a pioneer in establishing Chessed organizations in Israel that assist needy families at each junction of their lives, throughout the life cycle and throughout the yearly cycle, especially at their weakest moments. Yad Ezrah is a multi-branched umbrella organization that provides daily and weekly food distribution, a soup kitchen, medical and emotional services, dental clinics, wedding halls, education for special needs children and more. The organization is a support system for thousands of hard-working families who are unable to fully provide for their monthly needs due to various circumstances. Yad Ezrah inspires the family to return to living a normal life and even to become part of those that give to the community, which brings them and their children great joy and satisfaction.
