This rating was published 12/01/2017 and includes data from FY2016, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Yad L'Achim was established in 1950. It is a non-profit organization with no political affiliation. Over the years, its attention has turned to more complex problems, including how to counter the missionary threat. Israel has attracted some 100 missionary congregations and cults because it offers a large concentration of Jews, many of whom are prime targets due to their economic distress and unawareness about Judaism. Fighting the missionaries, who have millions of dollars a year at their disposal, has long been one of Yad L'Achim's top priorities.
