There are dozens of gmachs and organizations in Jerusalem alone that will happily take donated clothes, food, kitchenware, furniture, etc. I compiled most of this list based on compiled lists I received on Janglo.
If you have another to suggest, contact me. I’m happy to list others.
UPDATE: see my newer post about donating to orphanages in Israel.
Note: I left off any that seemed like private numbers for the sake of their owners.
A nonprofit organization (amuta) that provides interest free loans to working Israeli citizens with a monthly family income from NIS 3,000 up to NIS 13,000. The exact details and application form is on the web site, in Hebrew and English. The IFLA provides over 350 personal or small business loans per month and has been doing this since 1990. Repayments are immediately recirculated to new applicants, and the default rate is less than 1%.
The office is in Jerusalem, but loans are made throughout Israel.
Tzur Hadassah now has clothing bins for donation. The one I’ve seen is next to the supermarket on Rechasim, where the cardboard box recycling is.
