Kiryat Arba is the famous biblical city adjacent to the Marat Hamachpela, the burial ground of the patriarchs and matriarchs of the Jewish people Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebecca, Jacob and Leah. A developed urban area with a population of over 7,000, Kiryat Arba is magnet for the ingathering of the exiles. New and old immigrants from Russia, Ethiopia, France, Morocco, Tunisia, Italy, India, America and Canada alongside native born Israelis all have come together to rebuild Jewish life in this ancient city.
The Yad Leah distribution center in Kiryat Arba offers a large variety of different types of clothing to accommodate the diverse religious and cultural population in this large town. Yad Leah has also partnered with the Kiryat Arba community to widely distribute linens and towels. Families are often not able to obtain this basic necessity since linens tend to be unusually expensive in Israel. These essential household items in addition to the regular Yad Leah clothing for all ages are particularly appreciated.
