How can I help if I’m not able to volunteer in Israel?

Leket supporters can help in many ways beyond volunteering in the fields or at the logistics center.

The easiest way to support Leket is to ‘like’ our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter and Instagram and share our posts on social media with your friends and family.

You can also organize a fundraiser or chessed (charity) project, host an information session for your community, congregation or organization or support Leket Israel on the occasion of a simcha (special occasion) or community event by opening a personalized charity page with Leket’s B’simchas.
