Social Responsibility

At YES Pharma, we are firm believers in the principle of giving back to the community.

We focus our corporate social investments in education, healthcare and critical human needs. Leveraging public-private partnerships, as well as investments of expertise and cash, we multiply impact and help our local communities thrive.

Investing for the Long Term

The goal of our social investments is to promote innovation, independence and long-term progress. We work hard to build programs and support organizations that thrive well beyond our investment - ones that put skill, confidence, and power into the hands of the people we work with.

This is why we look for opportunities to give in ways that help people extend their own abilities. We believe this multiplies the success of the communities and organizations we work with far beyond what we have invested

Tzohar - A Window Between Worlds

Where walls exist between the religiously observant and secular communities in Israel, Tzohar opens a window and works to encourage unity within the Jewish nation. Tzohar are building better relationships between Israel's diverse, multi-cultural Jewish populations, who have become polarized over issues of politics and social concern, with a loss of respect for the opinions of others.

Tzohar's primary goal is to empower educators to communicate with those for whom religion is a peripheral but still necessary part of their lives. Tzohar activities are based on feelings of loyalty to the State of Israel and its traditions.

Tzohar has returned religious Zionism to its historic role as a connection between Israel's different communities, and has indeed become 'a window between worlds'.

Shaalei Torah Educational Centers

The organization was started in '88 by Rav Rachamim Nisimi, and deals with various projects aimed at the weaker societies - socially and educationally. Groups of educators go and live in problematic areas and try tackling the issues

Shaalei Torah initiated a new program in 2007 to develop the role of a communal rabbi in the communities. While Rabbis and synagogues are in abundance in Israel, members of traditional communities often have no connection to a community rabbi. Shaalei Torah's goal is to introduce rabbis into traditional communities who will take an active role in the community and build personal relationships with its members. Many of the Shaalei Torah communities also reach out to families in need and children at risk through the establishment of a Warm Home which provides services for children at risk during after school and summer hours. Shaalei Torah also distributes food packages before the holidays, delivered personally by neighbors or community members with the effect of reaching out both financially and socially.
