What is the meaning of “Ezer”

The breadth and depth in the meaning of the word Ezer embodies the essence and spirit of the foundation.

The Foundation was drawn to the name Ezer which is found in the bible.

Ezer signifies God as the one who comes alongside us in our state of helplessness.

The Ezer Foundation is thus a vessel open to bringing life, hope and healing. Ezer means to rescue and to save, and to be a strong helper.

Distilling its root meaning, The Ezer Foundation aims to reach out to help not only in small ways and through modest acts and in valuing individual lives and families but also in ways that can strongly impact the community.
