orenstein project- nice to meet you
The Orenstein Project was established in Israel in 2017 in order to fulfill the vision of Henry and Susie Orenstein to provide hot meals and food to the elderly, Holocaust survivors, families in need, children and youth at risk.
Henry, a Holocaust survivor, and his wife Susie, live in the United States, are philanthropists who have, for the last 30 years, devoted their energy and wealth to assist those in need in many ways, both in the United States and in Israel.
The Orenstein Project strives to minimize "food insecurity" in populations in Israel who struggle to obtain proper nourishment.
"Food insecurity" is defined as the inability of an individual to provide his/her family with vital and nutritious food, inclusive of all main food groups, in sufficient quantity and quality, in socially acceptable ways, without needing any assistance from emergency sources or charity.
Studies show that "food insecurity" which exist among many families in Israel may impact the ability to function on a daily basis, cause poor social behavior, increase violence, depression and may result in both a drop-in school performance and attendance.
The Orenstein Project strives to collaborate with associations, organizations and local authorities in order to obtain additional resources for enrichment activities, support for elderly and families, social and sport activities for children, tutoring and more.
We believe that food nourishes not only the body but also the soul.
A well nutritious adult or child can learn, develop and attain accomplishments.
Through an integrated effort we strive to help improve the welfare of those in need.
