Welcome to Yeladim.org

A site devoted to improving the lives of orphaned, abandoned, and needy Jewish children.


Since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, and especially since the 1998 economic disasters in the region, the plight of orphaned, abandoned, and neglected Jewish children has become increasingly desperate.

Our goals are to:

  • increase awareness of the problems facing Jewish children in the former Soviet Union;
  • increase financial support to organizations helping the children;
  • provide resources and ideas to Jewish congregations, schools, teachers, students, and community groups;
  • and collect and publish a comprehensive list of organizations and funders working in this area, to facilitate communication and joint efforts.



The site is entirely run by volunteers, and does not accept donations.

If you wish to make a donation, please contact one of the organizations listed on this site.
