Good Deeds

_______ _______ ___Tzedakah (charity) is one of the foundations of Judaism.  At the Educational  Center of Rishon Lezion, action is what counts.

More than 20 Ethiopian elementary school children and their families view the yeshiva as their second home and as a source of support they can count on.  After school, the children receive a hot meal and assistance with their homework.  During the summer, the day camp ensures that these children do not spend their days roaming the streets. Their families receive assistance with food and clothing on a monthly and in some cases a weekly basis.

Assistance is not limited to the Ethiopian families in the area. Other needy families also receive assistance and the students take turns visiting the elderly and others in need of assistance.
