Aliah and Klitah, On Wings of Eagles

Help for return, immigration (aliyah) and live restoring, absorption (klitah)

When 74 years of communist rule ended with the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990, the door to freedom is opened for one of the most oppressed groups of people on earth: the Soviet Jews, whom for a long time they were refused permission to return to Israel, their ancestral homeland.

When large-scale emigration was at last possible, International Fellowship of Christians and Jews started the program On Wings of Eagles, to transport these Jews flight to freedom to the "Holy Land". To date, hundreds of thousands of Soviet Jews have emigrated to Israel through this initiative.

Over the years, the scope of the efforts of the fraternity in the rescue of Jews in distress has spread beyond the former Soviet Union to also include those living under State sanctioned anti-Semitism in Arab lands, thousands Jews 'lost' that have been found in remote corners of India and Ethiopia and others, where rampant anti-Semitism has led many to regard Israel as a future home.

Thanks to generous donations to The Wings of Eagles, the friends of the fraternity have brought hundreds of thousands of Jews to the Holy Land from all over the world. With funding from emigration to Israel donors Fraternity show its compassion and concern for the Jewish people.

What we do: restoring (klitah)

The Aliyah brings Jews from all over the world to Israel. But the commitment of the Fraternity for the new immigrants do not end when they arrive at Ben-Gurion airport in Tel Aviv, but, somehow, actually begins at that time.

The Fraternity recognizes that it is very important to provide what is necessary for the restoration of the Jews who were brought to Israel through On Wings of Eagles. Many immigrants arrive with little more than the clothes they must learn a new language and integrate into a new culture. They need immediate assistance, both food, clothing, shelter, medical care, as long-term assistance: training for a job, job search, Hebrew language instruction and school for their children.

On Wings of Eagles helps new immigrants to become full and productive members of Israeli society, meet that need. In carrying out this work, helps immigrants to help themselves and secure the future of the State of Israel for generations to come.

Israeli humanitarian aid for Palestinians Gazan after "Operation Cast Lead"

Since the end of Operation "Cast Lead - the amount of humanitarian aid for the Gazan population provided by Israel has increased by 30% compared to the numbers of the previous years. The IDF magazine "Bamahane" reports that during 2009, approximately 100 trucks with humanitarian aid goods were transferred from Israel to the Gaza Strip daily.

The transfer of humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip is coordinated by the Gaza District Coordination Office (DCO). "The DCO constantly works on efforts to provide as much humanitarian aid as necessary for the Gaza Strip," says the DCO Operations Officer.

The main objective of the operation – reducing the number of missiles and rockets fired onto Israeli territory – has been achieved.

Throughout 2008, 1,553 rockets (most of them Qassam rockets), 1,685 mortar shells and 40 Grad rockets – altogether 3,278 - were fired from the Gaza Strip onto Israeli territory.
In 2009, on the other hand, only 149 rockets, 95 mortar shells and 4 Grad rockets were fired at Israel. Altogether: 248 impacts (those numbers do not include the firings during Operation Cast Lead, and were last updated on December 16th). The number of rockets and missiles fired has decreased by more than 90% compared to that of the previous year.

I want to write about love

One day, someone asked me:
- Why do you write about sad things in your Blog?
- I can answer: No, I do not want to write about sad, I want to write about love. The first commandment is the sincere love, brotherhood, without interest. When I think of love, I believe in love.
Charity is not just donate money or material goods, love can be a simple act, how to donate their time and expertise for a moment ... There are so many things that can be done with love, is not it? Do not forget that today maybe we are lucky but there is no guarantee of tomorrow and unexpected knocks at our door every day. Today we can help, but maybe we do not need help in the future?

I wish for all good parties and fun.

O Brasil gritando por ajuda!

Brazilians need help!

This weekend I went to the city of Rio de Janeiro (distant 500 km from the city of Santos, São Vicente, SP, where I'm living).
Yes, Rio is gorgeous, with beautiful beaches to see, but I was not satisfied with the living conditions of most of the population. The social differences are immense. Here where I live (Santos) is a smaller city and cleaner, with less social conflict. But in Brazil there are very large social differences. Some places I saw there in Rio de Janeiro left a bad impression!
There is now an undeclared war between the forces of military and civilian police and traffickers, who dominate the poor communities, and the number of deaths is very high. The deaths by firearms in Rio de Janeiro (and also in Brazil) are higher than the war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan for example.
Some serious charities do a good job help, but that is little compared with the immense social problems because the services of education and health are poor and mismanaged by the government of Brazil.
Missing housing, schools, hospitals, basic services of water supply and sewage treatment. The waters and the sandy coastline of Rio de Janeiro are highly polluted.

Charity in the Festival of Lights!

Celebrate Hanukkah also helping the environment and doing charity.

On Chanukah, it is traditional to give children Chanukah Guelt - Money Hanukkah. One reason for this custom is the opportunity to offer them positive reinforcement for exemplary behavior, and encourage them to donate a portion to tzedakah - charity. This commandment (mitzvah), helps children understand the importance of charity (tzedakah) also when they are adults.

Some useful examples for charity on Hanukkah:

Ner Shel Tzedakah (Candle of Justice)A project for the sixth night of Chanukah Dedicating the night of Chanukah 6 to learn about the problem of poverty. Donate the value of gifts (or the gifts themselves) that would otherwise exchange on that night to organizations that help the poor.

Light Among the Nations
If each family had one light bulb with a CFL (compact fluorescent lamps), it would have the same impact as removing 1.3 million cars off the road. Celebrate Chanukah taking action to resolve the crisis of climate change. This campaign is to involve the community Jewish education, advocacy, and concrete measures to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. Visit the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life (COEJL) to find out how you can participate in this important campaign.

Sustaining the Light: A Social Justice Program Guide for Chanukah. A new program guide of the Commission for Social Action, which highlights the themes of social justice of Chanukah - the environment, economic justice, children's issues, religious freedom - and describes the activities that flow from them. In the guide you will find ideas of social action program for families, social action committees, youth groups and other groups synagogue. We hope this material will help you make your Chanukah observance one that inspires acts of righteousness (Tzedek) and tsedaká (charity).

These lights are sacred

"These lights are sacred... we can only look at them" Unlike the Shabbat candles, the lights of Chanukah may not be used for personal pleasure.

For although our perception may be blunted, we were, and essentially we are masters of vision. Indeed, the Chanukah lights are placed in the window as a beacon telling all passers-by that darkness can be dispelled with wisdom, that darkness can be illuminated with the truth. At the same time that Chanukah celebrates the past, also celebrates the present and future.

For though Chanukah celebrates the miracle of a single amphora of olive oil burning for eight days, also imbues the world with the hope of redemption, when the light will triumph over negativity. That is all past and future, and as during the 36 hours of the beginning of mankind, "there will be no hunger or war, no jealousy or rivalry". For goodness be total, and all delicacies will be as common as dust.

The occupation of the world be known only to G-d.

"For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of G-d as the waters cover the ocean floor" (Maimonides).

Light and Wisdom

Use Google Translate for your language

index By "Dov Ber Pinson"
Why do we call the Hanukkah Festival of Lights? Why not celebrate the oil or the Miracle of Eight Days? The root of the word Hanukkah is Chinuch, which means education. Hanukkah is a spiritual process is cumulative, whereby the total of thirty-six lights that are lit grow to reveal the light of Creation.

What is light? The light is generally used as a metaphor for wisdom. The universal symbol for understanding in a graphic design or illustration is a light or lightning. light - see. People of all cultures, when grasping a concept that is being explained, use in various languages, one word: see. "Oh, I see", we say, when we finally come to understand something.

Maimonides writes that a prophet can experience a ray of light, of radiance, which illuminates your path. "Light" is often used in the Torah to express knowledge and wisdom. With the words "Let there be light," the creation of the world emerged. The Talmud explains that this light lit Adam and Eve for thirty-six hours, from noon on Friday for the whole day of Shabbat, when "Adam could see the end of the world at his [other] end."

During this time, the Primordial Light, the inner wisdom of purpose and truth, was exhibited to mankind.

But for this purpose of creation is complete and order to overcome the darkness was made manifest, this bright light was hidden from the universe, stored for a time that would still come.

Since then, we long for that light, we seek and seek in prayer, study and meditation. However, even in our darkest hours we can access this memory born of the 36 hours that we, humanity as a whole, we live in this light. "Where should this light be hidden?" asks the Midrash, "in the Torah." In its radiance feel the wisdom, purpose and intent of creation.

In every generation there are 36 elevated souls present who support, nurture and keep this light.Hidden, unobtrusive, and practically unknown, these 36 people just are sparks of that Hidden Light. Through refined awareness of fair, in light of the Torah permeates the world.

During the eight days of Chanukah, our world is bright with this glorious light.

A Universal Message

Hanukkah (On date 25 Kislev, 5.770 - hebrew calendar) This year (2009), the first candle is lit on December 11 - duration 8 days, contains a universal message for all people of all faiths - a message of freedom, the victory of good over evil, light over darkness. The symbol of the party, an eight-armed candelabra, acquired special significance for the Jewish people during the revolt against religious coercion of the ancient Greeks, about 2,200 years ago. This chandelier, in fact, represents much more than just a religious symbol. It symbolizes the freedom of expression and thus indicates the diversity and pluralism as important in our society. Giant chandeliers light up in public places proclaiming the universal message of religious freedom, as has been done in hundreds of cities around the world.

The history and discovery of Falashas

See the story of a Jewish refugee Ethiopian Mr. Shlomo Mula
Use Google Translator for your language

The history of discovery
In 1860, British missionaries who were traveling in Ethiopia were the first Westerners to find the tribe of the Falashas, being surprised to see the faces burned with Semitic features and practicing Judaism. The members of the community observed the Sabbath, kept strict ritual laws the way they were described in the Torah.

Shortly after, the Jewish scholar Joseph Halevy decided to meet them in person. Could it be that these Jews were part of one of the tribes of Israel, lost long ago, at large of the First or Second Temple?

Halevy was received with curiosity and suspicion by the natives, who asked him: Sir, Jew? How can a Jew? You're white!

But when Halevy mentioned the word Jerusalem, all were convinced. The Falashas had been separated from other Jews for thousands of years. None of them had never been outside their village. However, all cherished a great dream, coming from generations past: back to Jerusalem. The Jews of Ethiopia suffered the same discrimination as others, in the diaspora.

In early 1970, there was an organized group of Beta Israel who wanted to emigrate to Israel, although its members still are not considered Jewish and therefore not entitled to make aliyah. One hundred Falashas already living in Israel, where he started a movement led by a Yemeni Jew born in Ethiopia, Ovadia d 'Tzahal, who made aliyah in 1930 and had relatives among the Falashas. So he pushed them to emigrate to Israel.

The Israeli government, seeing the imminence of the murder of thousands of them in the Ethiopian war took one of the most important recent history of our people; was time to rescue as many as possible would be bringing them to Israel, giving them home, education, health, employment, finally, offering the dignity deserved by every citizen of Israel.

How was Operation Solomon

Use Google Translator for your language
In 1990, while rebel forces advanced against the Ethiopian dictator Mengistu Haile Mariam (the butcher of Addis), it became clear that the Falash be exterminated, unless they could leave the country. Asher Naim, excellent facilitator, worked in several fields simultaneously. Negotiating with Mengistu, coordinated logistics and strategies with the Israeli military and collect donations, frantically through contacts in the United States.

On May 23, 1991, decided that the time had come to call the Israeli Air Force: Operation Solomon was to begin immediately. The dictator Mengistu had accepted the conditions, pay in kind and imposing strict confidentiality.

Before the Israeli embassy, thousands of Falashas jostled, ready to go. The first Israeli planes landed at the airport in Addis Ababa and a team of well trained commanders positioned itself to protect the mission at any cost.

In total, 14,200 immigrants were taken to the city's Ben-Gurion airport in Tel Aviv. Thirty-five military and civil aircraft made 41 flights. At one point, there were 28 planes in the air. * One of the Jumbos, which normally could take 500 passengers, carried at one time 1087 people, a feat noted in the Guinness book of records.

To Asher Naim, the rescue of Ethiopian Jews was of vital importance. He wanted to liberate their brothers in a dictator tyrant and thereby ensure the survival of that tribe. Helping Falashas to return to Jerusalem, Naim has reached a new and deeper understanding of the true meaning of faith, identity and the struggle to overcome adversity. In his book, cites a phrase from Bernard Raskas: Gd does not want us to do extraordinary things. He wants us to do ordinary things, extraordinarily ...

In Israel, the adjustment of immigrants has also been difficult. Most were very young and without any culture, suffering rejection because of their color. Several programs of American and Jewish institutions have developed special projects for intensive education for children, for example, the school Beth Zipora in southern Israel. The program was implemented by Elie Wiesel and courses in English and computers. The dream of the Ethiopian Jews is to train leaders, doctors, engineers and even generals (now in 2009 it has already been realized). The Israeli government has campaigned to raise funds for its absorption and survival, in order not to let them return to the same cycle of poverty, despair and bitterness of his past in Africa. Currently more than 100,000 Jews of Ethiopian origin living in Israel.

The Jews of Ethiopia - Operation Solomon

Use Google Translator for your language
For nearly 3,000 years, the black Jews of Ethiopia, known as Falashas and call themselves Beta Israel maintained their faith and identity struggle against hunger, drought and tribal wars. It is believed that they were part of one of the ten lost tribes, their ancestors dating back to King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba (Saba).

In May 1991, the Falash staged a miraculous exodus. With Ethiopia involved in deep and brutal civil war, 14,200 members of this community were flown to Jerusalem for the Defense Forces Israel. The operation lasted 25 hours.

The hero who conceived and organized the incredible rescue was then Israel's ambassador to Ethiopia, Asher Naim. The epic has been narrated in the book Saving the Lost Tribe, in which Naim relates with humor and knowledge of the action that became known as Operation Solomon.
In the fall of 1990, when he was appointed by the Israeli government for the post of ambassador in Addis Ababa, its identification with the Ethiopian Jews was immediate. He wanted to continue "Operation Moses, established in 1985 by the Israeli secret service, Mossad, in conjunction with the American agency CIA for three years, tried to take the country 14 thousand Falashas through the Sudan, bringing them boat to Israel. The success of that operation was on, because at the time, only eight thousand people managed to escape and the rest fell ill on the trip and many returned to Ethiopia. Many families were thus separated. - To be continued ....

Young, Adriano Costa Chaves, embarks on 22 August to Tel Aviv, where he will join the Academy of the Israel Philharmonic. Student of the Baccarelli Institute, Adriano is a student of bass and was recognized by the great maestro Zubin Mehta for a little over a year in their own community.

At the time, at the invitation of the Votorantim Institute and the Center of Jewish Culture, Zubin Mehta, one of the greatest rulers of the world, went to the largest slum in Latin America to meet the Baccarelli Institute, recommended as a reference for music education people in situations of social vulnerability. Even without knowing what level of music would encounter, Mehta attended the choir presentations of children, beginning students in violin, and finally, the Heliópolis Symphony, conducted by maestro Roberto Tibiriçá.

At the time the orchestra performed the 5th. Symphony of Beethoven, Zubin Mehta stood amazed and then took off his jacket to take the baton of the group. In later testimony, the conductor admitted he was so nervous and excited as the first time was in charge of an orchestra.

Soon after this time apotheosis for each of the young musicians, the direction of the Institute decided to submit the Zubin Mehta one student in particular, a talented bass player, Adriano. Tense, but safe, Adriano ran a solo part of the Concerto for Double Bass by Domenico Dragonetti. With only 17 years old, surprised the maestro Mehta with his performance and it received a scholarship at the Academy's Symphony Orchestra in Israel.

Thereafter, was prepared, in a year, embarking on a new country, a new continent, with a culture quite different from Brazil. The Center of Jewish Culture was responsible for promoting travel and offer all the structure to adapt to Adriano, who received lessons in Jewish culture, Hebrew, and also have a follow-up in Tel Aviv.

Baccarelli Institute also took steps to reinforce the lessons bass student who daily studied at 6 to 8 hours a day focused on your goal.

Jewelry to Benefit Children in Malawi

Introducing Lori Leavitt’s Panthera collection, a jewelry line that’s making a world of difference.
Jewelry is a luxury that all too often we feel guilty about purchasing. But now, with Lori Leavitt’s new Panthera collection, not only can you treat yourself, you can also provide much-needed aid for children in Africa. Over one million children in Malawi live without a parent, home, or education. In an effort to generate funds and awareness for these children, Lori Leavitt partnered with the H.E.L.P. (Hope, Educate, Love, Protect) Malawi Foundation to design a collection that can be worn as a symbol of your support.

100% of the profits go directly toward helping these children as they battle poverty and illness, primarily HIV/AIDS.

The collection, composed of bracelets, rings, and cuff links, uses the lion as inspiration for its design, representative of the courage and strength the Malawi children demonstrate on a day-to-day basis as they continue to struggle against insurmountable odds. With the introduction of the Panthera collection, jewelry can be so much more than just an indulgence — it can be opportunity, change, and hope.

Sale & Purchase

/ One path // Two hands

Some promotions have two good things - buy and donate.

We buy and know that we pay all or part of value is going to the charity.

I particularly think very interesting these promotions. Stimulates consumption and we donate at the same time. We must always be careful that the institution be honest, for which the target is safe.

Charity is a fundamental part of the Jewish way of life.
Tradução disponível para o português (use o tradutor do Blog)
Traditional Jews give at least ten percent of their income to charity. Traditional Jewish homes commonly have a pushke, a box for collecting coins for the poor, and coins are routinely placed in the box. Jewish youths are continually going from door to door collecting for various worthy causes. A standard mourner's prayer includes a statement that the mourner will make a donation to charity in memory of the deceased. In many ways, charitable donation has taken the place of animal sacrifice in Jewish life: giving to charity is an almost instinctive Jewish response to express thanks to G-d, to ask forgiveness from G-d, or to request a favor from G-d. According to Jewish tradition, the spiritual benefit of giving to the poor is so great that a beggar actually does the giver a favor by giving a person the opportunity to perform tzedakah.

Business Week's 2006 list of The 50 Most Generous Philanthropists includes at least 15 Jews. In other words, Jews, who are only about 2% of the American population, are 30% of America's most generous donors. Similarly, a 2003 study (reported in the Jewish Journal) found that 24.5% of all "mega-donors" (people who donate more than $10 million a year to charity) are Jewish. Nor is Jewish generosity limited to Jewish causes: while a few of the Jews in BW's "Top 50" list Jewish causes among their primary charitable targets, most don't. Indeed, the Jewish Journal article laments the fact that the overwhelming majority of those Jewish mega-donations aren't going to specifically Jewish causes.

The Sager Family Traveling Foundation

Donna Karan is co-hosting the launch party of “The Power of the Invisible Sun,” by Bobby Sager. The Urban Zen New York City store joins the celebration with an exhibition of his photographs. The exhibition showcases powerful photographs of children taken in war-torn areas of Afghanistan, Rwanda, Iraq, Pakistan, and Palestine. Over the past decade, Bobby Sager has been traveling the world – donating to causes he believes in. Practicing what he called “eyeball to eyeball philanthropy,” he established The Sager Family Traveling Foundation. The vision was to experience communities and cultures first hand while simultaneously creating programs for assistance, with the ultimate goal of transforming these programs into self- sustaining entities. Bobby found himself drawn to the stories in the faces of the children he met, and started photographing them. “The hope in their eyes is their gift to us – a light to ignite our optimism, perhaps even our action.” Read more about Bobby Sager at www.teamsager.org.

Scholarship Fund for Ethiopian Jews

The Scholarship Fund for Ethiopian Jews (SFEJ) is an American non-profit and tax-exempt charity.

SFEJ is dedicated to the development of a pool of talented, well-educated and highly motivated Ethiopian Israelis, who are committed to serving their own community, as well that of all Israel.
We strive to promote the emergence of leaders who will ultimately enable the community to become fully integrated into Israeli society.

The rescue of Ethiopian Jews began in the 1980s, and reached its peak in 1991 in the dramatic airlift (“Operation Solomon”) of more than 14,000 in the course of a single day.

More than 100,000 Ethiopian Jews have now been brought to Israel. Not unexpectedly, their integration into Israeli society has been fraught with problems. Coming from a largely agrarian, pre-industrial society, the Ethiopian Jews were plunged into a modern, industrial society, without the resources needed to cope with the transition.
Much has been written about Israel's "security fence,” a device designed to separate Israelis from their Palestinian neighbors. Israel's Ethiopian Jewish community has been separated from its neighbors not by a physical fence, but by a virtual fence of prejudice against, and discomfort with those who appear different. SFEJ seeks to break down this virtual fence by helping to create a core of Israeli professionals who will serve as role-models for younger Israelis, Ethiopian and non-Ethiopian alike. Our mission is to keep the promise that was made to our brothers. It is not enough to change their address; we are obligated to help them become a vital part of Israeli society.

In the belief that education is the single most effective tool for the integration of the Ethiopian community into Israeli society, SFEJ was founded to raise funds for the promotion of post-secondary education among Ethiopian Israelis. To date, funds provided by SFEJ have assisted more than 2000 Ethiopian Israelis to achieve the education required for successful integration into the economic and social reality that is modern-day Israel.

Unibes: human solidarity since 1915

For Judaism, poverty is not inevitable.
The Jewish religion is concerned with the injustice since its inception.
We are delivering just what we do.
This is the fold of Judaism, is preaching the Torah

Unibes: Brazilian-Israeli Union of Social Welfare

Although officially founded only in 1976, one can say that the Brazilian-Jewish Welfare Social (Unibes) emerged from 1915 with the creation of the Beneficent Society of the Israelite Ladies Benevolent Society and the Friends of the Poor Ezra the first Jewish charities in Sao Paulo, which provided support for the Jewish immigrants who came from Europe to settle in Brazil.

In addition to these two institutions, which is known today as Unibes is also the union of other organizations such as Pro-Immigrants Society, Policlinic Linath Hatzedek, Home of the Child Checkers Israelis to Drop Milk of B'nai B 'rith and Jewish Women's Organization for Social Welfare (OFID). The Unibes is in some ways, the continuity of the two agencies, each with its specific mission, as the book says "Unibes 85 years. A history of social work in the Jewish community in Sao Paulo," compiled by Roney Cytrynowicz.

Practice wide

With the passage of time, Unibes is increasingly integrated into the local reality and expanded its social activities beyond the Jewish community, promoting global services to children and adults. However, the 60 thousand Jews Paulo never ceased to be the major focus of Unibes. "Our main concern today is to care for our impoverished Jews, the 'new poor'. And that is where our social service concentrates most of its forces," says Dora Lucia Brenner, the active campaigner and president of the institution.

The Unibes operates in several segments. In the area of Children and Adolescents, an estimated 1.1 million children between 2 and 17 years, with food, recreation and complementary education programs through the Nursery Betty Lafer, Young People Area and the Professional Courses. In another action arm, the Department of Social Services assists the approximately 1.6 billion poor families in the community through psycho-social orientation, guidance and technical assistance, financial and social advancement.

Unibes The projects also include the elderly, people with mental and physical disability, left out of the labor market, as well as services such that the Charity Bazaar, a Private Pharmacy, Healthcare, family assistance, health insurance, Holiday Home, Therapy Family, Program Committee, Shalom Program, Program Or, Labor Program, Pensionato Housed and more.

"In this difficult period of community life, with the apparent impoverishment of the middle class, the performance of Unibes has proved crucial to the rescue of our supporters, giving them the support necessary for recovery and maintaining a Jewish life of dignity", says Jayme Blay, president of the Jewish Federation of the State of São Paulo (Fisesp). "And volunteering at this difficult mission, occupies a prominent place. Dedication and efficiency that make up the binomial allows Unibes perform its task in an exemplary way. And all within the noblest Jewish spirit, which is to give a hand to those in need ! Completes.

According to the site www.filantropia.com.br the Unibes is the third party in Brazil on "Family Care", the 35th state of Sao Paulo and 63 th among the 400 largest in Brazil. No wonder that the body builds up several awards, including the Very Efficient Prize - Kanitz & Associados, the Community Partnership Award, Project Workshops Socializing Sports - Unicef, the Vitae Foundation, the Human Rights Prize of the Ministry of Justice and others.

Israeli Orphans, “Portraits of Compassion"

Local Program Helps give Israeli Orphan Children Personal Treasures

Yon Zlalo is 7 years old, living in Beit Elazaraki Orphanage in Netanya, Israel. Like his counterparts (over 180 in this one orphanage), Yon has few precious possessions, including not one personal photograph of himself. When Yon is 18, he won’t have a single piece of photographic evidence of what he- or his friends- looked like as a child.

Every day, we take for granted our photographs- treasures that Jewish children living in Beit Elazraki Orphanage in Netanya do not have. These children, many whom have been abandoned, neglected, abused, and/or orphaned, lack the personal keepsakes that provide them memories of their youth and connection to their heritage and identities.

In response, one local community member-Kathy Kanter-has helped to create a new program under the Federation’s Partnership 2000 (P2K) Steering Committee that will give these children a visual record of their childhood.

The program is called “Portraits of Compassion.” Kathy was inspired by Ben Schumaker’s successful Memory Protraits program (run by the Memory Project) that he began as a way to help orphan children in Guatemala. In this program, advanced high school and university-level art students create original portraits for children living in orphanages around the world. Once finished, these paintings are given to the children.

Barbara Miller, Director of the Partnership, had read about Schumaker and recommended that Kathy get involved with this kind of project in Netanya. Kathy, a phenomenal scrapbook artist herself, wanted our community to do the same for the Netanya children living in Yehuda’s orphanage, to- as she put it- “hold in their hands something all their own.”

During her last visit to Netanya in October, 2006 during the Partnership 2000 steering committee visit, Kathy took photos of 30 children in Beit Elazraki and collected their personal profiles. These profiles would be used by the artists to incorporate the child’s individuality into the paintings.

With the help of the Federation’s P2K committee, the participation of local schools and the JCC, beautiful, personal portraits of the children were created by artists. These include many done by three remarkable local artists :Blessing Sivitz, Carl Deutsch and Ruth Levinson from the JCC’s Senior Adult Art Class. An interesting note: despite her being partially blind, Blessing Sivitz’s portraits are amazingly detailed.

Also remarkable were the portraits created by Teri Hiudt’s local, non-Jewish public-school students. Her students made sure to incorporate the children’s personality by adding in pop culture, Israeli and Judaic symbols. In this way, the art project became a cultural lesson about Jewish children half-way around the world.

At the time of this article, Kathy is in Netanya with the Sycamore High School trip and is delivering to the children their personal keepsakes. Upon her return home, Kathy will have more photos of other children in the orphanage- more portraits to be made. And, of course, she will have her own personal photos of the joy brought to the faces of the children who, thanks to her and the artists, now have a precious childhood possession.

Predicting the future:

Predicting the future: Philanthropic Support for Children and Youth Jewish
"The Jim Joseph Foundation"
Richard M. Joel
Yeshiva University

How wonderfully refreshing to be invited to provide advice as a foundation to spend twenty million dollars annually. And in the Jewish education! Those of us to invest our energies moving Jewish hope of life in an institution and its leadership that has focus and is brave enough to ask questions challenging. I spent most of my life involved, professionally and as a volunteer in most aspects of Jewish Education, formal and informal. My term as president of Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life has given me something of an overview of both our people and their needs as well as young people and their dreams. My term of office at the University Yeshiva gave me yet another perspective confirmation. I firmly believe that this is a time when being Jewish has become an option, not a condition. After generations of our identity to be determined as much by a world of exclusion as a proud be people, most of Western society today welcomes the Jew in mainstream culture. How do we address the effects of assimilation, it is clear that nobody is obliged to be Jewish. Actually, we had a very significant influence on aspects of popular culture ways that in so many contemporary life is ours. In a welcoming society and assimilationist, the totems and taboos of the past of Judaism does not loom large. Anti-Semitism, Holocaust, Israel, images, sounds and smells districts of Eastern Europe are no longer rooted parts of Jews "beings. I strongly believe that the feelings Jews or Jewish feeling, which was once called the "Pintel Yid" does not transmit generationally. In fact, Judaism is not an option for a condition. Only if there is a reason for the exercise of that option will pick a Jew. But I know that Judaism is much more than images and sounds, tastes and touches. He transcends tribal. We are a people of history and destiny, of pride and purpose, and therefore the alliance, and the community. But it is clear to me that these riches are not accessible through the catechism or visits with grandparents or with simple aphorisms. In a society elective, in order to "choose the Jews," our children have to be Jewishly literate and more, has to be experienced Jewishly. Put simply, they should know their history, and they have their own history. Without basic literacy, without the narrative of the family, we are lacking, in addition to being illiterate, we are homeless and without hope. I've seen in my years of Hillel that, finally, we have a common history of speaking, thinking about, and to build upon. However, knowing the history is necessary but not sufficient. We also need its own history, feel it, the experience of Jews, individually and collectively, to celebrate our existence. As the Torah says "v'laasot Lishmor" - "to learn and do" - we have to teach learning and doing. We are a nation of text and context. Therefore, non-formal and informal education, textual and contextual exposure to Jewish learning and is the essence of education.

It is the ticket for a Jewish journey. Community of Israel, customs, philosophy, practice - all are contingent on knowing the history and owns history. I believe our task as educators is not to be diverted by contemporary fashion for the post - modern views of identity. From a simple and clear, as we as a people, estimated to provide our children with education, we must provide our children with Jewish education. And Jewish education should be experiential and textual, which should be more than another matter. Our people are rebellious and fractured - there are threats to the Jewish future that are existential and schismatic. Many can be resolved, if at all, only during the passage of time, with solutions beyond my knowledge. But this I know: we have no hope for the sustainability of our people and be our opportunity to influence the world will come from a common commitment to make our children want to know and their own Jewishness. This is the great challenge of today. And that is the great opportunity that Jim Joseph, of blessed memory, who presented. With my bias Jewish education thus established, I am happy to share these thoughts as I with the Foundation. The Foundation's fundamental choices only he can do about how to choose the focus. He must also decide whether to be an operational base or a source of funding, or a combination of both. I can not presume to advise you on the decision. I know there are many talented professionals and institutions deeply invested in various realms of formal and informal Jewish education. They would be reinforced by a serious support resources. They also need to be in an environment where the community reinforces the imperative of Jewish education as the sine qua non of survival deliberate. And we all need to be performed with the standards and develop tools for measuring success. In terms of operating principles, I urge the Foundation to follow some basic rules: • Keep your partner - simple with its grant recipients, they do not jump through hoops. The work is very important, the resources and time very precious. • Encourage investment in being successful. • Housing subsidies so that they can have a lasting impact. • Trumpet the successes. • Develop the brand so that an investment Jim Joseph, who represents the quality of Jewish life should require. • The Foundation must stay for the proposition that Jewish education requires text and context, both formal and informal education, information and experience • The Foundation should be seen as an asset and a resource across the spectrum of the Jewish community. I suggest that offers five categories of initiatives: 1. Encourage the profession of Jewish education, 2. Challenge of developing programs of Jewish education for local initiatives; 3. Investing in training institutions; 4. Preserve and strengthen existing educational successes of the program, and, 5. Encourage the advancement of knowledge and research in Jewish education, I have arbitrarily on budget figures for each initiative.

Clearly, the Foundation would develop realistic budgets. 1. Encouraging Profession - $ 6 million I believe that a number of factors, particular and general, make the time ripe time to attract the best and brightest to the profession of education. Young people are looking for meaning in careers, if they think they can respect, and have a life of dignity that will train and enter the field. Even if you find ways to deal with the crisis of class, we must ensure that educators have quality across the board that can provide excellence. While the issues of teachers' salaries, are a challenge for each community to meet, the Foundation can encourage the field encouraging Jewish Educational career. I suggest the Foundation publicly commit a substantial amount of its resources to encourage young people to enter the field of formal education and / or informal education. This could take the form of a mortgage fund for educators to buy homes at heavily subsidized prices, the mortgage forgiveness programs based on years of service. Alternatively, the Foundation could support a program that would forgive the cost of their education or training related to the duration of the mandate. A capital fund to encourage the serious continuing professional education, or something similar, would make a powerful statement to young professionals. 2. Challenging the Local Institutional Development Program - $ 5 million in local, I would suggest to the Foundation to create a national fund for local institutions - schools, preschools, camps, youth programs - to receive two or three years grants to develop their own initiatives, with the incentive of getting funding for the endowment program on establishment success. As an example, if a school day or school network the day I would like to retreat model programs for high school students (or families) that could contextualize their learning, the Foundation would provide funding for research and development and deployment of a few years, if successful, a donation would be offered to make the program permanent. This would encourage local initiatives and creativity, it would diffuse existing resources, and could deepen the educational experience. The Foundation will have to decide whether he would develop in house consultants or a pool of consultants who could work with the recipients. Certainly, one hopes would be that the programs could be replicated elsewhere.

- Investing in training institutions - U.S. $ 5 million There is a wealth of ideas to expand the work of many institutions of quality education in the Jewish community. Foundation investment in developing new initiatives result, through multi-year grants and donations, would be invaluable to those bodies in both these institutions for training new professionals in contemporary professional education and being of assistance to the local schools. For example, certification programs can be developed to train camp counselors, youth advisers, etc.. Also, perhaps more fundamentally, we must strengthen the capacity of training institutions to develop and teach a generation of leadership - both lay and professional, and impact on local education these students of the institutions of purpose and passion - and our lay kodesh Klei - should be empowered and given the tools to lead. 4. The partnership with Global successes - $ 2 million there are some clear Jewish educational success in our community. They include the Wexner Heritage Program, Wexner Graduate School, Campus Hillel of service, and Birthright. The Foundation can partner with any of these to expand them and increase their impact. For example, many of us are convinced that Birthright is an important Jewish journey. We are also convinced that effective, personal monitoring is necessary to truly capitalize on the investment Birthright. The Foundation may choose to have an important effect in this area in partnership with Birthright to train and build a framework for campus-based follow-Birthright professionals who work with students to connect them to ongoing Jewish growth plans. Or the Foundation can offer $ 5000 scholarships for students that Birthright would begin to participate in programs of long-term Israel proper education. A million dollars a year would allow 200 participants significantly in the construction of Birthright. Another example would be a partnership with the Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE) annually to launch niche programs to be modeled on CAJE conferences, providing educators with the school with additional resources to develop a common annual project in all its schools . 5. Encouraging New Ideas and Educational Technology - $ 2 million I think it is critical to the Foundation to support the continuous development of ideas and research in Jewish education. For example, the Foundation could commit to ten years of $ 100,000 annually for major academic conferences on Jewish education, encouraging research and writing by scholars and educators in several disciplines of Jewish education. Serious conferences on pre-school, camping, school curricula, learning processes, Israel education and the like would be very educational format. Alternatively, these funds could provide a visiting professor for education specialists.

Within the item described here, the Foundation can make several statements visible: 1. She wants to encourage young people to build careers as educators. 2. Strengthens extensive creative programming in a set of local institutions. 3. The aim is to strengthen and expand the training institutions. 4. It partners with educational programs worldwide success. 5. It advances research and development of new ideas and technology education. More importantly, a commitment of this magnitude significantly strengthens the culture of investment in Jewish education and be able to trumpet our successes there. It is also an affirmation of the importance of investment in human capital, and not bricks and mortar. In doing so, it's important that the name "Jim Joseph Foundation will be visibly marked as a benchmark of quality. Each of these initiatives could have a team or advisory panel of experts, teachers, lay leaders and philanthropists to help the Foundation. Finally, a report of the foundation can bring about change and progress. Clearly, there is no magic pill. After all, the house is the biggest driver education. The Jewish Home is reinforced when the Jewish community send messages of up and real education, text and context, knowing the history and owns the story, are accessible and valuable, and provide answers of purpose, meaning and community in a world desperate search of values
