With 2020 wrapping up, we’d like to put this difficult year behind us and reflect on some of the highlights at Meir Panim. Thanks to individuals like yourself we were able to overcome the many challenges and serve 3x the number of meals to meet the growing demands of Israel’s disadvantaged and newly unemployed. It’s an inspiring reminder that anything is possible when we come together.

If your a supporter of Israel then Meir Panim is a good way to do it. Thanks for your help.💑
I wish to convey the message to all readers the wonderful work being done in Israel for people in need, young and old, from all segments of Israeli society. I have not only seen for myself but have participated in helping feed the poor there in the soup kitchens and visited people in their homes distributing food credit cards to purchase food. I extend an invitation to all who visit and have helped to visit the branches and see for themselves the holy work that is done.
As we are give thanks for our many blessings on these holidays, we need to remember and help those who are less fortunate. Surprisingly, in Israel, many people live below the poverty line, including tens of thousands of Holocaust survivors. Meir Panim - means literally Lights up Faces - provides almost half a million meals a day at soup kitchens across Israel. They also provide social services, youth centers for at-risk children, career counseling and much more. It is a wonderful organization that provides food, caring, and hope to so many who would otherwise be facing daily challenges just to survive. I hope you can include them among the causes you are already giving to, both for this holiday season and going forward. Wishing everyone and all best for this holiday season.
