About our Founder:
Long before the world got to know Rabbi Ephraim and his legendary chalukehs, young Ephraim had already changed the lives of families in Eretz Yisroel.READ MORE
Orphaned families, single parent homes, or disabled breadwinners are at a greater disadvantage than other impoverished families. Oneg Shabbos V’Yom Tov sends weekly care packages that are filled with Shabbos food and basic household staples that keeps them going for the week.
Known as the most expensive holiday on the Jewish calendar, poor families experience an extra dose of slavery instead of celebrating the Yom Tov of freedom. As the cost of matzah, wine and fish is on the rise, their hopelessness plummets further. For over 39 years, Oneg Shabbos V’Yom Tov has been conducting the largest distribution center a week before Pesach, where families stock up on all Pesach basics.
As the seasons change, families’ needs change as well. On Chanukah they need oil and candles, on Succos they need fish and meat, and on Shavuos they need dairy products. Oneg Shabbos V’Yom Tov conducts seasonal distribution centers to help families enjoy every season like they deserve to.
From the first day, until today, Gedolei Hador in Eretz Yisroel stand behind R’ Ephraim’s mission and bless those who take part.
For the last 8 years, Oneg Shabbos V’Yom Tov hosts a mamed asifas rabbanim during the Pesach chalukehh where gedolei hador daven on behalf of donors and supporters.
