Mission and Goals
Ve'ahavta is a Jewish charitable social service organization dedicated to promoting positive change in the lives of people of all faiths who are marginalized by poverty.
Ve’ahavta (Hebrew for “and you shall love”) is committed to engaging community members in a meaningful and hands-on way to support our collective mission of tikun olam (repairing the world).
How Your Contribution Helps
Your donations help us deliver poverty alleviation programs that break down barriers, restore human dignity, foster capacity-building, and empower marginalized individuals to break the cycle of poverty.
"Where Ve’ahavta stands out is its consistency. Ve’ahavta provides food and clothing, but your workers forge relationships with the clients and give useful and practical advice, and when possible offer real help. Because the van is out there almost nightly, there is follow-up and accountability for both the worker and the client. This continuity makes positive results possible. Which is why, in addition to maybe two other outreach groups, I cannot think of another organization as effective as Ve’ahavta.”
