How can you perform your atonement mitzvah?

The atonement ceremony can be performed using a chicken or by donating money to a charity, it is a mitzvah to perform atonement before Yom Kippur. This year we ask you to use your atonement to support our ZAKA units.

ZAKA – the heroes that seem to always be at the right place at the right time!

Over the thirty-plus years since ZAKA’s inception, ZAKA has built up different units ensuring that all forms of help are available when needed. In addition to ZAKA’s professional Search and Rescue Team dedicated to finding stranded individuals, its services also include a Rapid Rescue Motorcycle Unit to arrive as quickly as possible at a scene of a disaster. ZAKA’s Divers Unit to help rescue those in distress under water, and a Chesed Shel Emet Unit offering honorable burial to the unfortunate deceased victims. They are available at the drop of a hat to respond to a terrorist attack, natural disaster, road accident or personal tragedy, globally!.

Why we do it?

Zaka’s assistance at these major catastrophes involving mass casualties led to their recognition by the United Nations as an ”International, Volunteer, Humanitarian Organization.” This UN recognition enables ZAKA to offer emergency assistance globally before the Country has formally sent a delegation requesting help. In a further attempt to shorten the response time to mass casualty incidents, ZAKA has trained local emergency response teams worldwide.

How you can save lives right now?

Now is your turn to open up your hearts and enable the esteemed ZAKA Organization to continue its vital work across the board. They cannot finance the entire running without you! With every dollar you give you are saluting the outstanding work in which ZAKA is engaged, and showing your appreciation for their selfless activities! In the merit of donating to this charity may you never need to use its services in any way. May we all merit seeing an end to human suffering with the entire elimination of ZAKA’s services, speedily in our days.
The opportunity to save lives is literally in your hands today.
Donate generously now!
