A tradition of caring for over 215 years.
A Glorious Past…
Kupath Rabbi Meir Baal Haness was founded over 215 years ago by the great Torah leaders of European Jewry. With great insight, they realized that the fledgling settlements in the Holy Land would need the material support of European Jewry in order to survive. The fund would be the channel by which they could provide assistance to their struggling brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisroel.
Over the years, Kupath Rabbi Meir Baal Haness has served as a lifeline for countless needy families: a trustworthy and reliable friend that has helped them through both good times and bad times.
