"It is not your obligation to finish the task,
but neither are you free to exempt yourself from it."
Ethics of the Fathers (2:21)
Am Echad, a non-profit, charitable 501(c)(3) organization, was established in year 2000 to provide financial and moral support to elderly and disabled Jews in the former Soviet Union, by helping the most lonely, the most desperate, those with no relatives to help them, those, who are not reached by the efforts of the mainstream Jewish organizations.
