The Lema'an Achai organization is a social service resource which combines the experience of a small professional staff with the enthusiasm of hundreds of volunteers. Its volunteers include professional social workers, attorneys, mental health practitioners, nurses, certified public accountants, physicians and dentists, building tradesmen, mechanics and drivers, who represent a diverse spectrum of the Ramat Beit Shemesh community. Founded in the year 2000, by a group of local residents, Lema'an Achai is rooted in Judaism’s communal responsibility towards charity and chesed (kindness). Its Smart Chesed philosophy translates concern for our neighbors into highly successful interventions at minimum cost.
Half the proceeds of photograph sales from the LeMaan Achai collections and galleries goes directly to Lema'an Achai.
