Coming Up This Week:  January 16-21

Celebrate 100 Years of Ahava
Sunday, January 16, 10:00 am
The Ahava Village for Children and Youth is a residential center that provides loving on-site homes for children ages 6 to 18 who have been removed from their homes due to trauma and dysfunction. The Village strives to provide a safe “home” environment, complete with caring parents, and often gives them their first sense of community. Along with his wife Chana, the speaker Raanan Gal has been a dedicated volunteer and supporter of Ahava for many years. Following the airing of a short video clip describing the fascinating and historical background of Ahava (it was founded in 1922 by Jews in Berlin), Raanan will talk about the present-day purposes and workings of Ahava. This lecture is sponsored by Kesher as part of its Israel lecture series. Kesher proudly donates to this organization, using funds it collects at the annual Kesher appeal.  Click here to join us.
