 We provide chickens to more than 900 children every week and their families. More than 250 families continue to depend on the generosity of this fund for Shabbat dinner each week and festive meals on holidays. With your help we can restore the sense of peace and contentment on Shabbat to these homes.

Clara Hammer, who passed away just before her 100th birthday, was known affectionately as “the Chicken Lady of Jerusalem.” She was honoured with a Yeshiva University Doctorate of Kindness and received many other awards, including those denoting her as a Yakirat Yerushalayim and Eishet Chayil.
