Distribution of Meals

Ezrat Achim provides cooked meals for families with a parent or child who is hospitalized or undergoing treatment, as well as the elderly or disabled who are unable to cook for themselves.  We currently have requests from hundreds of local families who need meals.  Please help sponsor a family so that we won’t have to turn anyone away!

At Ezrat Achim we know that fresh and nutritious food is a necessity for individuals and families coping with illness.  Eating proper meals is what gives them the energy and physical stamina to continue caring for themselves and their loved ones.  There are also many elderly residents who can’t prepare cooked food on their own.

Our Meals on Wheels service relies upon local volunteers, who cook fresh food daily in their own homes, as well as in our professional kitchen, which has a hechsher from the Badatz of the Eida HaCharedit.  Meals for Shabbat and Chag include fish, soup, chicken/meat and side dishes.

A group of dedicated, volunteer drivers distribute the meals directly to the families’ homes.

As you sit with your loved ones at your table, you will experience the truest form of Oneg Shabbat/Yom Tov- knowing that your donation has provided meals for an entire family!

Who are the meals for

Beit Shemesh families with a sick family member or mothers who are just after birth.


This service is available in Bet Shemesh and the surrounding areas.

Volunteers at the association
Tova R., age 19

There is no greater light than that which shines from the sparkling eyes of a special needs child. Volunteering at Ezrat Achim’s special needs center has helped me to understand what life is really all about!

Mrs. G., age 56

Being an Ezrat Achim volunteer has changed my perspective on life. I used to complain about the fact that my days are boring and routine. Now I know what a tremendous bracha that is!

Moshe R., age 60

I thought of volunteering for Ezrat Achim for so long and kept pushing it off. Around six months ago, I finally picked up the phone and called and became a volunteer. I’m so glad I did! It’s a big zechus to be an Ezrat Achim volunteer- I recommend it to anyone who has even an hour a week to spare!

Rachel J., age 37

The feelings I have about being an Ezrat Achim volunteer are hard to put into words. You have to be involved with helping others in order to understand how good it makes you feel!

Dini S., age 17

People always tell me that I give so much to the special needs kids that I volunteer with. But the truth is that I get so much more from them. I can honestly say that I am a different person now, than I was before I started volunteering at Ezrat Achim’s special needs center!


Volunteering is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself! As an organization dedicated to chessed and caring for others, Ezrat Achim is proud of our amazing volunteers from all across Beit Shemesh who do so much good for the community!

At Ezrat Achim, we believe that volunteering, aside from providing assistance to the person receiving the help, benefits the volunteer on a personal level and society as a whole.
