A marvelous organization that deserves your highest award. It truly allows those of us in far off areas to fulfill the mitzvot to help those of the Jewish people who are in need. May they be blessed in and for their work!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the needs of so many met in a very proper and caring manner.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the precise way they tend to the business of helping those who need the help the most.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very efficient and kind.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do thwe work that could bring the Mosiach!
