What we Do
Soup Kitchens - Guardians of Israel funds a network of soup kitchens across Israel that provide people with nutritious meals as well as opportunities for social interaction (particularly important for the elderly, who are at greatest risk of isolation). In addition, Guardians-funded food pantries provide nutritious food to the elderly and infirm who find it difficult to leave their homes.
911 Emergency Fund - Guardians of Israel funds community centers and service programs that give troubled and disadvantaged youngsters the chance to excel in school and work through behavioral problems. Guardians’ support of programs for families in distress also helps ensure that more children grow up in healthy, stable homes.
Operation Protective Edge - Following days of Hamas attacks against Israel, and after repeated rejections of offers to deescalate the situation, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) started Operation Protective Edge. A large IDF force entered the Gaza Strip to target Hamas’ terror tunnels that cross under the Israel-Gaza border and enable terrorists to infiltrate Israel and carry out attacks. Since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge, more than 3,500 rockets have been fired from Gaza at Israel. During this time The Fellowship has been on the ground, wherever needed, supporting the people of Israel.
Helping Protect Israel's People - Survivors of terror attacks and their families suffer through the loss or disabling of a beloved family member and months of costly rehabilitation, and often need specialized medical equipment or counseling to heal emotional trauma. Guardians provides for the physical, financial and emotional needs of these people who have suffered so greatly.
Employment and Education - A good job can be the key to a better future—and education can be the key that opens the door to a good job. Guardians of Israel helps people help themselves by funding programs that assist them in all phases of their employment and academic careers.
Community Needs - The Fellowship’s “911 Emergency Fund” supplements the welfare budgets of over 100 cities in Israel unable to provide for the emergency needs of their citizens. Funds are given directly to the cities for emergency assistance in the form of food, clothing, basic household appliances, rent payments for needy citizens, and much more.
