Break the Cycle of PovertyFund Education


Our Mission

Tzedakah V'Chesed is a top Israeli charity that feeds, educates and clothes children from families-at-risk. We believe that knowledge and education are the best ways to break the cycle of poverty. From the youngest age up to high school, we take impoverished and hungry kids and support them to their ultimate success. Tzedakah V'Chesed, a top Jewish charity organization, is the lifeline of the Safed (Tzfat) community, one of the most sacred and poverty-stricken Jewish cities in the Holy Land. Donating to Tzedakah V'Chesed is your way to support Israel, feed children, educate girls and provide clothing for poor families.


“It is a very great mitzvah to help this top Israeli charity school in every possible way. I give a special blessing to anyone who helps and provides assistance: a blessing and success in spiritual and material matters, and every good thing.”

HaRav Chaim Kanievsky, zt"l
