Ohr Meir and Bracha invites the public to volunteer in packing up food baskets for families affected by terror. Make sure to let the office know in advance that you plan to come.
Baskets contain chicken, challot, fruit/vegetables and all that is needed to celebrate Shabbat or Chag. Each Thursday, as we assemble the baskets, we are joined by a cast of volunteers stemming from Olim Chadashim, recent retirees, students from local Seminaries and Yeshivot, Chayalim and the list goes on. By the afternoon, the 400 families in our care arrive to pick up their baskets. Those who are no longer mobile, have their package delivered to them.
Ohr Meir & Bracha is a non profit organization based in Jerusalem that supports victims of terror and their families. It was founded in 2002 by Liora Tedgi, a mother of 10 who was injured a number of years ago in a car bomb attack in Jerusalem. Terror attacks destroy the lives not only of those who perish but also of those who survive. The Terror Victims Support Center seeks to aid these victims by offering vital services to help rebuild their lives.
