Chai L’Adam: Financial Assistance in Medical Cases in Israel

Chai L’Adam was founded in the Har Nof neighborhood of Jerusalem in 1989 by Mrs. Chani Minzer and Mrs. Chaya Rosenfeld. After seeing first-hand how many people were suffering throughout when illness struck their family, they recognized a true need to help so many to meet the costs of of the many medical procedures and services not  yet covered or subsidized by Israeli health insurance. They could not meet the they took it upon themselves to help them find ways to raise money and help them pay their medical expenses.

Whether the need is for a medical emergency, operation, transplant, fertility treatments, rehabilitation, medications or any other need that may be brought to their attention, every case that comes to Chai L’Adam is checked with medical experts and Rabbis who know the family.

We raise funds for our life-saving work through our annual inspirational dinners, yearly raffles and
many home parlor meetings. The organization is endorsed and guided by leading Rabbinical authorities, in conjunction with top doctors. These special people, along  with entire Chai L’Adam staff, all function on a voluntary basis.

Chai L’Adam is one of the many wonderful charities which hold the fabric of the Jewish state together, through the chessed, consideration for others and loving-kindness of their dedicated volunteers. They work day and night in the most devoted and selfless manner, answering calls for assistance and recruiting other dedicated women around Israel to help out and raise funds.

Among its other programs and services, Chai L’Adam runs hospital apartments near Hadassah Har Tzofim in Jerusalem and near the Rambam Hospital in Haifa – for the accommodation of the families of those undergoing medical treatment.
