THE DINING ROOMS
Beit Hatavshil has two dining rooms open to the public – one in Bnei Brak and one in Ranana. The dining rooms are pleasant and have a homey warm atmosphere. Participants receive a nourishing meal and pay one shekel per person. This shekel turns the premises into real restaurants that respect the diners and takes away their feeling of shame from eating handouts.
Every day about 900 families receive deliveries of food to their door in respect and discretion. These are families where the housewife is unable to cook. The nourishing meals change the feeling of pain and sorrow in the home into an atmosphere of home and love.
MEALS FOR THE POOR
Meals for the poor – "seudat aniim" is an ancient Jewish custom wherein on the day of a wedding the parents pay for the meal of poor people and thereby bring the blessings of the recipients upon the new couple. The seudat aniim that Beit Hatvshil organizes makes ten children happy who will not go to sleep hungry on the day of your happy occasion.
