Welcome to Yad Yeshaya

On an ordinary day, our lives consist of actions from the mundane to the spiritual. Regardless of our age or position, we all share commonly one activity— eating. Where does our food supply come from though? In today's modern world, we buy food at grocery stores.  And to attain food, we need money.

When a recession, job cuts, or a hurricane hits, families have to worry about the means necessary to purchase their food. As Jews, we have higher expense rates. Weekly, we prepare nice food for Shabbos; alas, when funds are sparse, who is to provide? In the Five towns/ Far Rockaway community, currently 275 families rely on Yad Yeshaya to deliver them food for each Shabbos and Yom Tov.

As an organization with almost no overhead, which means your donations go directly to helping needy families, Yad Yeshaya relies on volunteers from the community to make everything happen. Every Thursday night, the packages are made by TAG girls and then delivered by men and sometimes their sons help as well.

As an organization that only exists on contributions from our community we ask for whatever support you can provide. Each family has been checked according to their situation and the utmost of discretion is used to spare any embarrassment.

To continue to provide the comfort, ease, and worry free chessed to our neighbors and families in our community, we need the financial backing from our community. Each of us has the opportunity to sponsor items placed into the packages such as challahs for Shabbos for $ 1,000 or the entire Shabbos delivery itself for eight thousand dollars. Please look below. Each and every donation is appreciated. 

We invite you to partner with Tomchei Shabbos and help make Shabbos and Yom Tov for the families in need in our community.
