You can bring light to thousands of children at the end of the year

"Last year, I was estranged from my family and spent winter on the streets. Thanks to the kindness of donors like you, I am now safe and thriving at Migdal Ohr."

Dear Friend,

My name is Yael and I want to tell you how donors like
you changed my life from one winter to the next. Yael lives at the Afikei Ohr Girls’ Youth Village.

Today, I have friends and mentors who love me, I'm learning, and I hope to go on to a year of national service after I graduate. I am regaining my confidence after years of abuse and putting my life back together.

Last year was very different.

Last winter, after being kicked out of school and cutting ties with my family, I found myself on the streets. All I had were the few things I took from home.

Life on the streets brought all kinds of negative influences into my life. I had to rely on people that I never dreamed I’d get involved with.

When I reached rock bottom, I remember praying for a miracle.

Thankfully, I found my way to a womens’ shelter, and a social worker there referred me to Migdal Ohr.
I owe my life to that kind angel - and to you. Together, you made it possible for me to find my way home.

It’s hard to imagine any Jewish child without a warm place to sleep at night or a kind adult to care for them. Yet there are hundreds of children in Israel just like Yael - children looking for a place to call home.

You have the ability to change everything for someone like me. Your gift can be the difference between a life on the streets and a chance for a child to start over.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

- Yael

Please consider making a generous donation at the end of the year to transform a child's life. When you give, your donation provides children with:


  • Three nutritious meals a day

  • Medical care and any therapy they might need

  • A family-style home with loving dorm parents

  • Clothing, shoes, and all of their necessities

  • A loving and supportive school environment

Without parents to care for them, Israel's most vulnerable children need someone like you who believes in them and their potential. The children are looking forward to the year ahead and feeling optimistic knowing that you are behind them.

You can be a lifeline for a child who needs you.

Your gift will be the difference between darkness and light.

Thank you so much. There is no doubt that you are having a transformative impact on the life of a child who needs your help.

Children from broken homes, who have no future, could descend into crime or drugs. How do you save them? It is independent organizations like Rabbi Grossman’s Migdal Ohr that show us the way… These children go to the army, they then become productive and active citizens in our society and this is a monumental achievement.

I appeal to everyone, contribute to this cause. You are supporting life, you are supporting the state of Israel, you are supporting yourself, you are supporting this great nation.

- Shimon Peres, Former President, Prime Minister

This is something that can make a difference, will make a difference, to the society that we are building in Israel. A society in which everybody is enabled. That is an aim that we can all support.
