Addressing a range of niche needs that are often ignored

Special & Seasonal Services

Like everyone else, disadvantaged members of the Jewish community need basic necessities to survive. But sometimes, affording the most basic of needs can be a challenge. Fortunately, Israel charity organizations like Colel Chabad have risen to meet this challenge and help fill the gaps left by limited government assistance. 

Colel Chabad’s charitable programs provide food, shelter, and basic necessities to those living in poverty throughout Israel.

Our Acts of Charity for Israel

Colel Chabad is never content to rest on its laurels. We are always on the lookout for gaps that need to be filled in the provision of social services to the needy. Donating to Israeli charities like ours means investing in a future for vulnerable populations. 

We offer:

Home Heating

Most homes in Israel do not have central heating. The winter months are an unbearable hardship for those living in poverty without access to supplemental heating sources. Colel Chabad’s home heating program provides families with resources to stay warm throughout the year’s coldest days.
