We have been big supporters of Chabad-Lubavitch from the beginning of our philanthropy, both of the organization’s educational work and its social service work. We got involved with Chabad through Rabbi Shlomo Duchman, director of the Colel Chabad organization in Israel, who came to us seeking support for its work to educate poor children free of charge. Later we expanded our support of Chabad to help fund its soup kitchens in Israel.
If you want to help Jews in need, there is no better organization to partner with than Chabad, which attends to people’s spiritual and material needs. The Florence and Michael Edelstein Soup Kitchens in two diverse Israeli cities, Lod and Ramla, serve needy families regardless of background, affiliation or religious observance.
