What You Can Do


   Your efforts can make the difference in the lives of hundreds of people.

Please get involved in the way that most suits you.


  1. Give money directly to the Ethiopian Jews. Any size contribution will help. For $110 you can support a child for a year. For $15,000 you can donate an emergency food shipment. Support the Ethiopian Jewish schools by dedicating a classroom or a building.
