One of the holiest places in Eretz Yisroel is the ancient city
of Tzefat. Every year, tens of thousands of Jews visit the city’s
old Beis Hachayim to pray near the graves of the Ari Zal, Rabbi
Moshe Cordovero, Rabbi Shlomo Alkabetz, Rabbi Yosef Karo, author of
the Shulchan Aruch, and more recent Tzaddikim, such as Rabbi Chaim
of Chernowitz, author of Be’er Mayim Chaim, among many others.
However, Tzefat endured many years of hardship and indignity. By
the early twentieth century, hardly a trace remained of her former
In the late 1960’s, the TZEFAT FOUNDATION was instituted by
the late Rabbi Gedalyah Kenig Zt”l in order to recreate a Torah
observant community in this legendary city. After twenty years of
hard work, his dream came true: a core group of one hundred Kollel
families, together with several yeshivos and Chassidic groups again
raised the banner of Torah in Tzefat. B’chasdei Hashem, the
religious community has continued to grow. However, the difficult
economic condition of the region has been a formidable obstacle to
the pioneers who settled there. Many families have no income but
their Kollel check. Even the basic necessities of Shabbos and Yom
Tov are beyond their means. As a result, the organization EIZER
L’SHABBOS was established to provide staple foods for legitimately
needy families. These foods are obtained at discount prices.
By sponsoring a Shabbos meal for a family in Tzefat, you help
Jews who truly need your assistance. Thus, you fulfill the mitzvah
of Hachnosas Orchim on a very high level. For $50 you can sponsor a
small family’s Shabbos meals. For $100 you can sponsor a large
family’s Shabbos meals. Monthly sponsorship for a small family
amounts to $2,600. Yearly sponsorship for a large family totals
