Or Akiva

Address: Balfour 17, Or Akiva

Days of Operation: Sunday-Thursday

Hours: 10:00-14:00

Branch Manager: Ms. Ilanit Chafuta

The Or Akiva branch is located in a campus between two floors. Before we begin to describe the branch itself, however, we must mention the lush lawns outside. The entire area is filled with green squares. In the plaza outside the building, one can already feel the beauty of the kindness taking place inside. Meet the one and only Ilanit Haputa – Or Akiva’s branch manager. Ilanit is a professor in kindness. One cannot meet Ilanit and not immediately notice the sheer goodness pouring out of her. You cannot speak to her without being interrupted after a few minutes by another teenager who needs her. Ilanit serves as the mother and father to countless children and teenagers. She holds their hands – physically and figuratively. Every person in need knows whom to turn to in Or Akiva. The Or Akiva Meir Panim branch serves as the address for every request – in times of distress, and in times of joy as well. Along with her volunteers, Ilanit cooks delicious, nutritious food. In the afternoon, the visitors will begin to stream in to enjoy a kind word while preparing trays filled with quality food and packaging separate meals for the children back home. Ilanit always knows which word to offer. The branch is her baby; everything begins here. Ask anyone in Or Akiva who the city’s mother is, and the answer will always be: Ilanit Haputa. Ilanit also manages the afternoon clubs with the art of an educator. Every child receives personal attention, as though he were her own son. Parties and birthdays are not just another event – every party is a personal, well-invested affair, and every child receives a personalized birthday cake, his name spelled out in frosting on the glaze. The city residents’ love for Meir Panim is famous. Even the police and municipality know where to turn with every request they receive.

Dimona

Branch Address: Hamekabim, Yoseftal Center, Dimona

Days of Operation: Sunday-Thursday

Hours: 08:00-13:00

Restaurant Manager: Mr. Nissim Almakayes

 

The Dimona branch is a campus, including a dining room, a volunteer room, a board game room, and a tiny office – the office of Nissim Almakayes. You're also invited to meet Nissim Almakayes, the manager of the Dimona branch. From this small room, Nissim manages a vast network of kindness. The room looks like a command center with a task board and deadlines for completion. From here, Nissim's volunteers go out to purchase food supplies for the branch that feeds over 800 people a day. Some will come to the branch to eat their only hot meal of the day, while others will receive deliveries to their homes. A Holocaust survivor sits in his home waiting for Nissim's volunteers. The knock on the door signifies that someone thought of him, someone cares and will continue to care. He won't lack food – Meir Panim will always ensure that. By noon, everything runs like clockwork. Some volunteers go to the homes of lonely, disabled, and elderly people to deliver their lunch and check on their well-being, while others stay at the branch to welcome visitors. At 12:00 PM, the branch buzzes with activity. Meals are also served by volunteers doing community service, and Nissim gently guides them on how to return to life and embark on a new path. Nissim's team also includes intellectually disabled individuals. The love Nissim showers on them is immeasurable. They love Nissim, and Nissim loves them. In the afternoon, Nissim runs a seniors' club and supervises the volunteers at the nearby Koch L'Tet branch. He's attentive to whether a couple is about to get married and lacks the means to furnish their home – Nissim helps them with all their needs.

Days of Operation: Sunday-Thursday

Hours: 09:00-14:00

Branch Manager: Yehudit Elimalech

The Tiberias branch overlooks the beautiful view of the Sea of Galilee, and inside the branch, angels of kindness roam. Yehudit Alimalech, the branch manager, oversees the cooking operations in white aprons, and together with the volunteers, they cook steaming pots of soup and the scents of the dishes waft through Galil Street in Tiberias from the early morning hours. In the afternoons, a diverse crowd from all walks of life enters the branch. The branch manager, along with the volunteers, approaches each one of them, inquiring about their well-being and health. When Yehudit hears that a child has been born to one of the needy, joy overflows: cakes come out of the oven, and balloons are hung in the branch, making everyone feel at home.

Jerusalem

Address: Hatzvi 11, Jerusalem

Days of Operation: Sunday-Thursday

Hours: 11:00-14:00

Branch Manager: Ms. Daniel Shefaim

The Jerusalem branch operates harmoniously under the management of Daniel and a team of volunteers from diverse backgrounds. In the Jerusalem branch, you can see rehabilitated prisoners alongside volunteers, all standing together in the early morning hours, peeling potatoes and cleaning lettuce leaves for lunch. At 11:30, the flow of diners begins to arrive at the restaurant. Among them are single mothers, lonely elderly people, and individuals struggling to make ends meet. Daniel and the team of volunteers welcome everyone with smiles and love. They make sure to ask each one whether they would like another portion or perhaps are interested in "takeaway" meals. All of this is done with a smile and a generous spirit. Some say that they come to the branch just to see Daniel's smile and to be swept up in his positive energy.

Supporting the IDF with secure donations

Supporting the IDF through secure donations is a vital way to ensure that the Israeli Defense Forces have the resources they need to effectively defend Israel and its citizens. These donations help fund various programs and initiatives that support the well-being, education, and readiness of the IDF

One of the primary reasons for supporting the IDF with secure donations is to enhance the welfare of the soldiers. The funds collected are often used to improve living conditions on bases, provide essential supplies, and offer recreational activities that boost morale.

For example, donations throw “Meir Panim” can help build and maintain gyms, libraries, and other recreational facilities that allow soldiers to relax and recharge during their downtime. This is crucial for maintaining the physical and mental health of the troops, especially during prolonged periods of deployment.

Education and training programs for IDF soldiers

The IDF places a strong emphasis on continuous learning and professional development. Donations can be used to fund scholarships, vocational training, and other educational initiatives that prepare soldiers for life after military service.

By investing in the education of soldiers, donors help create a more skilled and capable military force while also ensuring that soldiers have the tools they need to succeed in civilian life.

Ensuring that contributions are made securely

For those looking to donate to Israel charities supporting the IDF, it is essential to verify the credibility of the organization before making a contribution. Ensuring that the organization is registered and has a track record of transparency and accountability is crucial.

Donors should look for organizations that provide clear information on how funds are used and offer regular updates on the impact of donations. This transparency helps build trust and ensures that contributions are making a meaningful difference.

So how to make secure donations?

Online platforms provided by reputable organizations offer a convenient and safe way to contribute. Many organizations also accept donations through direct bank transfers, checks, and other secure payment methods. Additionally, organizations like Meir Panim offer options for recurring donations, allowing donors to provide ongoing support to the IDF.

In addition to financial contributions, supporters can also explore other ways to help the IDF. Volunteering time and skills, organizing fundraising events, and raising awareness about the needs of the IDF are all valuable contributions. Community events, such as charity runs, auctions, and benefit concerts, can also be effective in raising funds and support for the IDF. By engaging the community and encouraging collective action, supporters can amplify their impact and contribute to the overall mission of supporting Israel’s defense forces.

In conclusion, supporting the IDF with secure donations is a critical way to ensure that the soldiers have the resources they need to carry out their duties effectively. Donations enhance the welfare of soldiers, fund educational and training programs, and support technological advancements essential for modern defense. Through these efforts, supporters can ensure that the IDF remains strong, capable, and well-prepared to defend Israel and its citizens.
