Any Jewish Brother In Need

Oneg Shabbos V’Yom Tov feeds families from every part of Eretz Yisroel. With distribution centers in over 42 cities, no Jew is left behind.

Central Israel 66%

Cities in the heart of Israel are faced with rising housing costs. In cities like Jerusalem, Bnei Braq and Beit Shemesh couples often give all their income to cover just rent or mortgage. That leaves them with no money to feed their children. Thousands of families rely on Oneg Shabbos V’Yom Tov to put food on the table.

North & Southern regions 34%

Although housing costs are cheaper in these regions, there’s a lack of gainful employment available. In addition, living under the unpredictable barrage of terror attacks has been causing long term effects on their economy. Oneg Shabbos V’Yom Tov trucks thousands of pounds of food to these povertystricken cities.
