URGENT - 50,000 CHILDREN THROUGHOUT ISRAEL AT RISK OF NOT HAVING FOOD TO EAT!!!

After their offices were ransacked causing crippling damages, the Mechira LaKehilla faces serious risk of closure – leaving 8,000 families throughout Israel without food to eat!!

The Mechira LaKehilla is one of the premier chessed organizations in Israel reaching out to all communities country-wide as far north as Tzefat and as far south as Arad. It runs a weekly sale of cost-priced grocery items at close to 100 locations throughout Israel, enabling over 8000 families on a weekly/monthly basis to put food and basic grocery items on their tables.

Through a multitude of cost-cutting techniques and using hundreds of volunteer hours, families save hundreds of shekels off their weekly supermarket shopping. For thousands of people, this is the difference between having what to eat, and G-d forbid, going hungry.

“I noticed within weeks of ‘The Mechira’ opening a branch in our neighborhood, how numerous children from poverty-stricken families were suddenly paying more attention in class,” says E. - a well-known school Principle from Kiryat Sefer. “Instead of only being able to afford pasta and bread, the children were eating healthy foods, fruit and vegetables, with the results being awesome!”

Every year "The Mechira" helps Jews throughout Israel to the tune of  20 million shekels!!  - which, from it's inception until today, amounts to a staggering 160 MILLION SHEKELS!!!

What is truly unique about the Mechira LaKehilla is that it has been quietly, and successfully operating for over 8 years - without ever needing to fundraise a cent!

(Click here to see Mishpacha article - Issue 571) 

“Our first Pesach after doing Aliya, was sooo difficult” says D. from Jerusalem. “I was ready to run back to the States. It is only because of all that help I got at the Mechira that I made it through and am still here.”

This Shabbos, within 2 weeks of moving into their brand new premises, the offices of The Mechira Lakehilla were burgled. The thieves succeeded in neutralizing the alarm system and totally destroying the premises, driving a forklift truck through the offices to remove the safe, and succeeding in emptying its contents. Hundreds of thousands of shekels of damage has been done.

However, as they have no profits - they also have no reserves for a freak incident as this.

"The thought that I may have to turn away tens of thousands of children who rely on our organisation for their daily bread, is tearing at my heart", says CEO and Director, Rabbi Shmuel Levison.

We desperately turn to you for the first time ever - Jews throughout the world - to come to their aid and to save this unique organisation so they can continue to serve Klal Yisrael as before.

"The thought that we won't have the weekly 'Mechira' is terrifying," says S. from Beit Shemesh. "They are my lifeline."

If they were G-d forbid to cease their operation, 50,000 children will go hungry!!

This is YOUR chance to feed thousands of Jews around Israel throughout the entire year - with your one-time donation!!
