Nir Am Purim Upates
In our Nir Am Center, a program was initiated to help the teens’ families. Yarden, the Program Director, understands the importance of including the teens’ parents in some of the community activities.

Or Akiva Purim Updates
We offered a “Mothers with Meaning” program recently, where the participants had such an amazing experience, that another mother and her daughter chose to be involved with us in celebrating the young girl’s Bat Mitzvah. They partnered with Ilanit, the Director of the Or Akiva branch, in creating a Chesed program to benefit our clients.They packaged Mishloach Manot and also wrote heartwarming notes to our clients.
In addition, Or Akiva hosted a party for young adults in an orphanage, which gave this group a special treat to go out and celebrate the holiday in a warm setting where they were all embraced and welcomed!
Tzfat Purim Updates
In Tzfat, students at the Rav Tachumi High School packed up Mishloach Manot for our clients with an abundance of spirit and joy. To start off the day, they created a massive “Happy Purim” poster to greet the Restaurant guests. They also participated in many intergenerational activities that facilitated a strong bond between the teens and the elderly. The elderly clients thoroughly enjoyed the personal attention and the opportunity to interact with the youth.
Overall, it was an exciting Purim that everyone enjoyed!
