Over the past several years, I have had the privilege of witnessing Meir Panim’s activities on behalf of the needy in Israel. Meir Panim is an organization with a vision to eradicate poverty through supplying services to the needy with dignity and with a view to aiding them in their return to an independent lifestyle. Its restaurants and equipment centers, along with its clubs for children and youth at risk and vocational training courses, serve to give weaker populations solutions to their needs while maintaining their self respect.
Meir Panim’s newest venture, a food center which will supply up to 30,000 hot meals each day, is its most ambitious yet. When realized, children in the region will be well-fed and will be able to study with ease, on full stomachs, helping them to achieve academic success and offering them opportunities for advancement that they would not otherwise have.
I wish Meir Panim all the best in its endeavors. It is my fervent hope that someday we will on longer need Meir Panim’s services in Israel.
With best wishes
