KeepOlim Feeds Olim

What started out as a side project of KeepOlim – procuring food for hungry Olim – has now expanded into a brand new program: KeepOlim Feeds Olim.

The Coronavirus Crisis posed a unique challenge for the Board of KeepOlim, who committed feeding our hungry Olim, declaring that “as we are the only post-Aliyah organization for all Olim, it was our duty to help Olim during this difficult Corona Crisis with many of our Olim being unemployed”.

Before Rosh Hashanah 2020, we gave out over 24,000 shekels of Gift Cards to Olim families and Lone Soldiers in need, across Israel for the holidays.

As of June 2021, we have distributed more than 100,000 shekels worth of Rami Levi and Sufersal Gift Cards to our Olim and Lone Soldiers.

During the height of the pandemic, KeepOlim welcomed over 110 freshly arrived Olim from the USA who were sent to a mandatory quarantine by bringing them gourmet baskets of fresh fruit for Shabbat with the help of the IDF Pikud HaOref (Home Front Command). KeepOlim welcomed our Olim to their new home, Israel, and eased their discomfort upon arrival.

We at KeepOlim do not want to see anyone go hungry. If you are an Oleh in need of food, please do not hesitate and reach out to us by emailing us at info@keepolim.org

Beverley Zamit Thank you Liami, and to everyone who has been helping and supporting me through this trying time. I am so grateful and blessed to have such kind, caring people come into my life. I couldn't have done it without you. Thank you, and may Hashem bless you all and provide you with an abundance of prosperity in which ever way you may need it. Beverley

 

Vivian Hamui Schrijver Thank you to all of you! Specially to Joan and Lorre. Everyday I feel more surprised of how many amazing people this country can have! You just made me cry. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.

I will never forget Keep Olim sending an angel to me when I was in the hospital in Jerusalem.

Overwhelmed is a word I've used a lot since my accident. Now to add speechless. Thanks to Joan Berman Shrensky, who heads the bikkur holim section of KOIM, my request for food was answered. Natty has just left my home, not only leaving my freezer full, but with such grace as she packaged everything into meal size portions. I have a very difficult eating plan, to keep my fibro in remission, and the amount of imagination and love used to create my food is incredible. Just reading the ingredients used in each dish makes my mouth water. Thanks Natty. I am so very grateful and promise to pay it forward in the best way I can. Chag sameach and wishing you a wonderful 2017.

Hi Joan,

Moving is never easy. In fact, it is considered one of the top four stressors in life......Couple that with moving halfway across the world, along with a foreign language to learn, and anybody would be challenged!! How much more so was I facing when I decided to make Aliyah as a handicapped, wheel-chair bound, single mother of two young adults.

And, to top it all off, once I was finally settled in Jerusalem, the city of my dreams, reality set in and we were moving once again........But this time the stakes were even higher. Now my daughter was already married and raising her lovely little girl while juggling school, marriage, and everything else in between. The stress of moving (once again) this time to a different city left me incapacitated and bed-bound.

Enter your wonderful organization, the Bikur Cholim of Keep Olim in Israel......It is safe to say that without your help and support my physical health and wellbeing would have deteriorated to a far greater degree. Instead, I received such dedicated and compassionate assistance from your organization that I have begun to feel much better and can now sit up with ease while supervising the unpacking that you so patiently and generously do for me!!! Every Bikur Cholim visit engenders hope that this hurdle too shall be overcome......

Bikur Cholim of Keep Olim in Israel is one of Israel's best-kept secrets that should be shared with every person considering Aliyah.......Don't leave home (your old country) without it! It is a game-changer!!!

Thank you, Bikur Cholim of Keep Olim in Israel for saving my emotional health and bettering my physical health with your kindness to me!!!!

May you go M'Chayil el Chayil (from strength to strength).....

Love,

Nechama
