Feeding the Hungry
"Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness!" (Isaiah 58:10)
Poverty continues to be a desperate problem in Israel.

Because of this, far too many Israelis cannot afford enough food, and an alarmingly high number of Israeli children are malnourished.
