The Jewish Federation of Reading
The Jewish Federation of Reading is committed to celebrating Jewish life and maintaining Jewish connections. We are a place of education and Jewish culture for people of all ages. We are a vital resource where Jewish ideas and ideals are instilled in our children and grandchildren for future generations. We strive to increase county-wide measurable participation in Jewish life with the goal of having the maximum number of members from our community involved in all expressions of Jewish life, and we nurture Jewish values from generation to generation. We will accomplish this by building partnerships to create multiple strategies and programs that build and strengthen the Jewish community, from young to old, from Berks County to Israel and throughout the world.
Our mission is to enable every Jew to easily perform the mitzvah of tzedaka every single day, and to disperse those funds to deserving Jewish non-profit organizations around the world on a daily basis.
Just as Jews pray three times a day, put on tzitzis each morning, and make blessings before eating, giving charity should also be performed regularly – each and every day. Tzedaka Yomi makes that goal – that mitzvah – easy and attainable. Many of us have been taught from a very young age to put a penny in the pushke every day. Jewish children across the world do this mitzvah each and every morning with zeal and excitement.
Tzedaka Yomi is determined to bring back the joy that giving just a little can bring to one’s soul. When you donate daily, your small donation will be combined with thousands of others, and given each day to a deserving charity.
Shalom Israel Jerusalem Peace Memorial
Where there are people who seek peace, reconciliation and understanding of themselves and others, there exist the conditions for true healing. The post-Holocaust motto of “Never Again!” can be true only when the great darkness of ignorance, prejudice and hatred is lifted and dissolved by the love and the light of truth. Offering the vision of “Jerusalem” as an antidote to nihilism, prejudice and xenophobia, the Jerusalem Peace Memorial is “where dust becomes light.” As a German-based organization we feel responsible to help bring consciousness to the idea of Jerusalem in the world.

Young Israel of West Hempstead
Young Israel of West Hempstead, located on Long Island, or for short, the – “YIWH” – was established by a handful of families in 1955 and has grown to be a congregation of over 700 families. It is a community that is proud of its connection to Israel and its people. The Combined Israel Appeal (CIA) of the YIWH, is an over 45 year tradition supporting tzedakah projects in Israel. In light of the pandemic, the CIA decided to conduct their appeal in order to address the food insecurity many Israelis are facing. Meir Panim was chosen as a beneficiary to provide Meals-on-Wheels to Israelis in Jerusalem and in Or Akiva, a socioeconomically challenged town near Caesarea. The grant from the YIWH enabled Meir Panim to meet its Matching Grant goal of $500,000!
