Lechem Lasova provides needy families in Israel with food and other basic necessities. This is accomplished in a variety of ways, depending on the needs of the situation—but always with Lechem Lasova’s trademarks of warmth, dignity and giving. Senior staff members maintain personal contact with recipients. They find out what their real needs are, and do their utmost to provide relevant and respectful assistance.
The best thing we can do for a person lacking income is to help him or her find work. Lechem Lasova offers occupational counseling and job-placement services to help the poor better their situation.
Holding a bris, a bar mitzvah or a wedding is a great source of joy for Jewish families. And for poor ones, it can also be a great source of worry. Even a simple celebration might be well beyond their means.
Lechem Lasova’s facilities, located a few minutes’ walk from downtown Jerusalem, contain an attractive hall that is available to the needy free of charge for celebrating these special events, all costs covered. When a bris is held, the mother will also receive a two-week supply of frozen meals for the entire family, saving her from the burden of cooking and thereby allowing her to rest and regain her strength.
Lechem Lasova’s facilities host highly popular programs on Jewish subjects. Several well-attended programs run each day. There is a program for high school and college students visiting from abroad, a very popular program geared for Israeli soldiers, and also programs for Israelis from all over the country visiting their capital city of Jerusalem.
These programs integrate music, lecture, film and interactive dialogue. After the program, refreshments are served.

What disturbs Miri?
Miri is nine years old, she lives in BeitarIllit, and life hurts. Not because her friends have more, or because her family isn’t going on vacation. It’s much simpler than that: she dreams of the day when her father will have enough money to send her to the dentist. Of course, before that happens, they will need to have enough food to eat at home.
