The notion of compassion, care and mutual help is deeply seated in Jewish tradition. Organization and principles of mutual help have always been a cornerstone of the Jewish culture.

Do not be indifferent!
Be charitable!


Just a thought that you are not alone with your trouble, that there is somebody thinking about you can save the life. With our joint efforts we can help those who need our aid – ill children, the disabled!
