With a third of Israeli children under the poverty line and so many charities trying to help, how do you know whom to give to? Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu solved the problem. He personally advised people from around the world to give their charitable donations to Yad Ezra V'Shulamit, a 30 year old organization in Jerusalem that feeds hundreds of hungry children, distributes 3,000 food baskets each week and delivers baby formula to mothers of infants that can't afford to feed their babies.

"I know you're doing your best, but I want you to do more. Yad Ezra V'Shulamit is a very worthwhile cause...they give from the heart, to the heart of a Jewish child. I would like to wish you the best of holidays and remember that 'all Israel is responsible for each other.' In Yad Ezra V'Shulamit they never forget it. You shouldn't either," says Netanyahu in a specially produced video.

Thank you Prime Minister Netanyahu for standing up for undernourished children in Israel. We appreciate your concern for Israel's poor children.

Yad Ezra V’Shulamit consistently steps to the plate to prevent the heartbreak of child hunger and food insecurity. With Yad Ezra V'Shulamit, your money reaches its full potential. Almost every penny donated is used to not only feed our neediest children but to coddle them in warm jackets, boots, and blankets for the home.

Join all of Israel in providing for the next generation - please CLICK HERE to donate. Happy Hanukka!
