Community Outreach

As part of its national effort for the welfare of disadvantaged children all over Israel, Shaalei Tikvah runs a comprehensive Community Outreach program. This undertaking comprises a number of initiatives for the benefit of the community, such as: providing warm clothes to the needy in the cold winter months, distributing Purim packages and Pesach parcels to poor families, enabling them to experience the joy of the holidays, and conducting community Pesach Seders in neighborhoods with underprivileged populations.

Other Community Outreach projects include: The Bar-/Bat-Mitzvah celebration for 76 underprivileged Bnei Mitzvah boys and girls commemorating the 76 Israelis who fell in last summer’s Operation Protective Edge. The Bnei Mitzvah event will take place on Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan, 5776 – October 16, 2015, at the Kotel Plaza in Jerusalem.

In addition, Community Outreach encompasses the planned Kaffe Klastche Learning Program for Women, which will begin its operation in the neglected Narkis section in Beit Shemesh. This study program aims to empower disadvantaged Ethiopian women by providing them with computer training and instructing them how to educate their children in these hi-tech times.
