Yesod Yosef tries to lessen the suffering of as many families and
individuals as possible. In certain cases Yesod Yosef aims to bring
individuals to the point where they no longer need to accept
charity. Yesod Yosef tries distributing to worthy families that are
often not affiliated with any set community or organizations and
are therefore not receiving the assistance that others are.
There are many reasons why families can be poverty stricken in
Eretz Yisroel. Certain cities such as Tzfas have a very limited job
market. There might be health problems or other obstacles that
prevent a person from working. It could be that they do work but
their meager salary is not enough to pay the bills and food
expenses of their large family.
Decisions regarding distributions and eligibility are made by
a panel of three, allowing for debate and additional opinions.
Yesod Yosef is an official non profit and all donations are tax
