Hello I went through my list of $18s that we send out monthly to various organizations, and we have a nice list going B"H however I notice that we do not have a specific Yerushalyim tzedakah organization that we send to.

I would be open to suggestions of good chesed organizations which serve the residents of Yerushalyim specifically and yet also has a mailing address in the United States that accepts funds on their behalf.

Thank you in advance for helping me correct this problem.

Tikva market in Jerusalem. It's a charity where the poor get groceries from a real supermarket (they pay 10% of the real price of the food) and it's not embarrassing to them because they walk around and pick whatever they need and stand in line at the cashier... and no one (except for the clerk) knows that they're receiving assistance.

is there any specific type of tzedaka you are looking for? (I.e. feeding the poor, clothing the poor, hachnasas kallah, education, kimpeturins, illness,) ?

Tehillat Naava Shlach Lachmecha helps poor families in Yerushalayim. It helps needy families with ill, handicapped children as well as those who are "just plain" poverty-stricken. Various programs help them in different ways. If you'd like more information, you can log on to tnsl.org.il or email info@tnsl.org.il.

Tizku L'mitzvos!

Vaad Harabbanim is a Charity organization that was founded by Gedolei Hador, shlita, in order to supervise all charitable matters in Israel. Until its inception, there was no real control or organization to charitable donations and causes, with the very number of charitable funds being overwhelming, as well as problems like knowing if one's donation really reached its goal, how monies were spent, reviews and audits of activities, and more.

As the economic situation worsened, it became even harder to ensure that charitable funds could be properly monitored, especially for large families in the Chareidi sector.

Understanding the scope of the problem, as well as the large number of unsupervised charitable organizations and the growing lack of trust among donors regarding their generosity's destination, it was decided to establish a single, central organization that would be directed, operated, supervised and audited by dedicated and honest Rabbinical leaders. Each request for help would be carefully examined, criteria would be set, and every case would be followed up and reviewed to ensure honesty, transparency and that a person's hard-earned donation reached its destination in full.

Thanks to its wide acceptance of the entire Chareidi world, the Vaad was able to establish a much wider donor base and therefore meet many more needs of an ever increasing poor and economically underprivileged population.

And so it was, the Vaad was established, rapidly becoming the largest and most central charity fund in Israel.

Vaad Harabbanim Linyanei Pzeduka Inc is a tax-exempt, non profit organization as described in section 501(c) (3) of the IRS, as amended.Our tax identification number is 371-456890.
