JobKatif, founded and chaired by Rav Yosef Zvi Rimon, was established in August 2005, to cope with the widespread unemployment of the Gush Katif evacuees, caused by the Disengagement. The goal: to create a holistic program to help them reintegrate into the work force. Since 2005, JobKatif has helped 2,400 people. Yet, there remain hundreds still unemployed. Time is running out. The Government triples donations, but this agreement terminates soon. With your help, we can help them rebuild their lives. One job at a time.
