When you reach out to help your struggling neighbor,
you impact his entire family for generations to come.

At the Kupa Shel Tzedaka of RBS, we don’t see numbers; we see people.  We understand that a financial crisis impacts not just a person’s ability to pay his bills, but his family’s entire emotional and physical stability.  That’s why when a community member is struggling, we work on getting a deeper understanding of exactly what they are lacking and set out to provide whatever they need to get them back on their feet. 

Our goal is to provide every person who turns to us with the tools and resources they need to help them solve their financial crisis and restore their independence.

Growing with Ramat Beit Shemesh

Back in 1999, when the Kupa Shel Tzedaka of RBS was founded, the nascent neighborhood of Ramat Beit Shemesh was just getting on its feet.  Since then, Beit Shemesh has burgeoned into the fastest growing city in Israel, with its population and construction expanding at an exponential rate. Today, it is the third largest Charedi city in the country – and has the distinction of being the city in Israel with the highest percentage of children.

And through it all, the Kupa has been there growing right alongside us.  Because as the population has grown, so has the need for a strong communal tzedakah support system.

The Kupa of RBS is run with a level of professionalism, initiative, accountability and big-picture thinking that has made it a model for other Kupas.  As the largest and most robust Kupa Shel Tzedaka in the entire country by far, it is a trailblazer and leader, guiding other Kupas in Israel in how to best help the needy.

Today, the Kupa covers nearly every corner of RBS, with branches across the city from which it runs an ever-expanding list of programs. 

Yet through it all, the Kupa continues to fulfill the mission for which it was founded – to help every single person in our community who finds himself in financial crisis, so that no one in RBS should ever have to suffer.
