Rav Chaim Kanievsky, spiritual mentor of Tzedakah V’Chesed

Thirty-four years ago HaRav Chaim Kanievsky turned to Rabbi David Darshan and gave him a mission. Find the children of Tzfat, who have no support system, and support them. In every way: physically, emotionally and spiritually. Rav Chaim believes that Tzedakah V’Chesed is among the best ways to give Tzedakah.

Over the past 35 years, HaRav Kanievsky has given each student his personal blessing… and so much more.

HaRav Kanievsky has kept his finger on the pulse of Tzedakah V’Chesed, checking in on a regular basis to see how the students are doing, what progress has been made and what issues are being dealt with. At the same time, HaRav Kanievsky IS the pulse of Tzedakah V’Chesed. His unbounded care and concern for the children gives our staff renewed drive and conviction. He is our spiritual leader, mentor and guide. When we face issues of life-or-death that our students grapple with – and unfortunately, such issues are not uncommon – HaRav Kanievsky is our refuge. His direction has shaped TVC into one of the best Tzedakah organizations you can support.
