ENDORSEMENTS

The Meir Panim organization brings people together, and bridges the gap between the different ethnic groups, communities and sectors that make up the population of Israel. But all this is nothing at all in comparison to their endless devotion and concern for the underprivileged among us who depend on the generous gifts of other people.

Today, over 1.75 million Israelis live below the poverty line and 1 out of 3 children suffer from food insufficiency and I am appealing to you in these days leading up to the High Holidays, to join me in sponsoring monthly lunches for hungry children, adults and the elderly in Israel.

To the administration, employees and volunteers of Meir Panim – may the blessing of God be upon you! “For I said: the world is built through kindness.” Indeed, the virtue of gemilut chasadim (performance of kindness) not only constitutes one of the three pillars on which the world stands, but is also among the fundamental attributes of the offspring of our patriarch Abraham.
