Dear Concerned Jews –
I have assembled a list of worthy organizations with which I am personally familiar, that dedicate themselves solely to helping needy Jews in Israel. If that is your interest, please pass this list around to potential donors. I apologize in advance for not including hundreds of other worthy Jewish causes, schools, and organizations. Their omission here is no commentary on their worth. I have tried to focus on the groups that I believe are answering the most immediate needs of desperate Jews in Israel. Thank you for your concern and interest and efforts to turn the tide in the distribution of funds to needy Jews in Israel.
Helping people to help themselves is the objective of JobKatif. Your participation will enable us to accomplish this goal. We thank you for your assistance.
