Karmey Chesed, literally translated as vineyards of kindness, offers a cluster of services for the needy Jewish family in Israel. Grapes, one of Israel's seven special species, require proper care to ensure that they grow properly. Likewise, we work tirelessly along with our dedicated volunteers to provide these families with both their physical and emotional needs. At Karmey Chesed we strive to aid unfortunate families in any possible way, helping them maintain their dignity and get back on their feet.
The organization's activities are currently centered in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Modiin, Beitar Illit, and Gush Etzion, but due to the high demand, efforts are expected to expand to other areas of the country.
Karmey Chesed's creative and exciting Green Charity program takes old appliances and furniture from those who are remodeling or upgrading, and gives them at no charge to those less fortunate. Instead of filling landfills and polluting waterways, these discarded items become a lifeline for needy families.

Terror Victims Support Center in Jerusalem - Ohr Meir & Bracha - was founded in 2002 by Liora Tedgi, a mother of 10 who was injured a number of years ago in a car bomb attack in Jerusalem. Liora set up the organization to respond to the unmet, unrecognized needs of victims of terror and their families. Terror attacks destroy the lives not only of those who perish but also of those who survive. There are hundreds of victims of terror who “fall between the cracks” of the Israeli government’s aid initiatives. They do not receive help because their injuries are deemed insufficient to be recognized as medical disabilities, or because they are still in the process of being assessed for disability (which can take two or more years. Help for Israeli Terror Victims.
Terror attacks do more than just destroy buildings and cause physical injury; they cause individuals great psychological stress, and interfere with the long-term livelihood of families. Many workers lose their jobs because of extended absences from work as a result of their own and/or family members’ injuries, but often they do not qualify for unemployment subsidies. Others are “unrecognized” or what are known as "secondary victims": individuals traumatized by having witnessed an attack, or are relatives of victims; people whose lives have been inexorably altered because of the death or disability of a family member as a result of terror. The pressures on the family unit following a terror attack can strain relationships to the breaking point, and lead to divorce, depression, or chronic unemployment.
The grief and pain of losing a loved one or enduring on-going extensive medical treatment can make it difficult for many families to cope with the daily caretaking needs of their children. Other families fall into acute financial crisis and do not have enough money to pay bills, buy food, or find psychological counseling. The Terror Victims Support Center seeks to aid these victims by offering vital services to help rebuild their lives.
Our hallmark endeavor is the weekly assembly and packaging of hundreds of baskets of food to be distributed in time for Shabbat or Chag. Our baskets contain chicken, challot, fruit/vegetables and all that is needed to celebrate Shabbat or Chag. Thursdays, as we assemble the baskets, we are joined by a cast of volunteers stemming from Olim Chadashim, recent retirees, students from local Seminaries and Yeshivot, Chayalim and the list goes on. We are located at 3/1 Yakim Street in the Arzei HaBira neighborhood of Jerusalem. We begin at 9:00 a.m. every Thursday morning and keep going until we are done. Groups are welcome.
Help for Israeli Terror Victims. Ohr Meir & Bracha does not use lengthy evaluation processes. It does not have eligibility criteria other than verifying that the individual is a primary or secondary victim of terror. It gives immediate assistance whenever possible. Perhaps you, or your friends at work or at school, or to mark a special occasion, will take the opportunity to make a direct donation to the needy families that we are privileged to help at Ohr Meir & Bracha. Should you wish to make a desperately needed donation, you may send a check, transfer money electronically, or donate online. Please help Israeli Terror victims.
