BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE

The Belz empire spans the globe, but its core is in Jerusalem, the epicenter of the Jewish nation. From there, Belz has reached out to become a integral part of the religious, educational, medical, and social service infrastructure of Israel. By investing in our homeland through the scores of programs described on these pages, Belz is helping to build a future for Eretz Yisrael and for the entire Jewish nation.

The monumental scope of Belz’s programs in the three areas of Torah education, chesed, and kiruv provides inspiration for all Jews. Through these programs Belz makes priceless contributions to the Jewish people everyday, helping to ensure our nation will flourish until the coming of Moshiach.

The Foundation of All We Do

Torah is the foundation on which Belz chassidus — and the whole world — rests. By building a network of Torah institutions to educate generations of children, Belz guarantees its own future and the future of klal Yisrael. What began with 40 boys in a small Jerusalem yeshiva has evolved into a network of institutions spanning 13 major cities throughout Israel. Today, Belz educational institutions touch tens of thousands of Torah scholars and children whose learning sustains the world every moment of every day.

Over the decades, Belz has built a worldwide network of social services that give comfort, healing and relief to all those in need. We provide clothing to young married couples and school children. We offer housing assistance and help purchase appliances for new couples. We provide financial assistance after the birth of a child, fund brissim and kiddushim. We send weekly meals to the elderly and providing temporary loan assistance. Belz offers support to Jews at literally every stage of life.

Belz is renowned for its life-saving humanitarian projects. When people are in medical or financial crisis, Belz is there with teams of trained professionals and volunteers to provide support. We know that when families can be helped at times of great hardship, they will ultimately come to stand on their own.

Whether it is someone dealing with illness, a breadwinner looking for better parnassa, or a family that cannot make ends meet, Belz treats each person with compassion, understanding, respect, and dignity.

REACHING OUT

The loss of thousands of Jews to assimilation and intermarriage is even greater than the numbers we count today: future generations are also lost forever. After rebuilding from the destruction of the Holocaust, Belz refused to accept the further devastation of losing even more Jews to a “spiritual holocaust.” To answer the challenge, Belz created large scale outreach programs in America and in Israel to bring unaffiliated Jews back to their roots.

By exposing them to Torah through seminars, mass media, Shabbatons, and workshops, Belz opens their senses to the sweetness of Torah. This global kiruv effort has succeeded beyond measure. Klal Yisrael is experiencing an exponential wave of return that Belz is proud to support. Entire families have committed themselves to Torah observance, building homes filled with Jewish values.

Through these programs Belz works tirelessly to reconnect, reunite and preserve the Jewish people so that we can once again be one nation with one heart.
