Youth Aliyah Tea

 Cincinnati Chapter of Hadassah held the Youth Aliyah/Children at Risk Tea at the home of Suzanne Schweiger on Thursday, March 4, 2010, at 1:00 p.m.  Chen Ezer and Tomer Peretz, two young Israelis from Cincinnati's sister city of Netanya were guest speakers.

Suzanne Schweiger spoke about Hadassah Neurim, one of three Youth Aliyah villages in Israel.  Sharon Spiegel, from the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, spoke about the Chaverim M'Israel program.  Suzanne Schweiger and Kate Minevich were program co-chairs.

 

Hadassah Youth Aliyah/Children at Risk is one of many educational programs sponsored by Hadassah in Israel. The program was created in 1934 when Henrietta Szold assisted Recha Freier in rescuing tens of thousand of children from war torn Eastern Europe. At the beginning, the youth were settled in agricultural villages and helped to build the fledgling country that would become Israel. Today Youth Aliyah services disadvantaged native-born Israeli children, abused and neglected children, children with learning problems, and recent immigrants from countries like the former Soviet Union, Ethiopian, and Argentina. Hadassah has responsibility for three Youth Aliyah villages, Hadassah Neurim, Meir Shreyah and Ramat Hadassah Szold.


Chen Ezer and Tomer Peretz, two 18-year-old Israelis from Netanya, have been brought to Cincinnati by the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati through Partnership 2000 for the program Chaverim M’Israel.  They are in our community for a year teaching about Israel and bringing the culture of Israel to our secular and non-secular schools and organizations.  They recently returned from a visit home to Israel and spoke about their visit to Hadassah Neurim, a Youth Aliyah village not far from Netanya.  They showed a PowerPoint presentation that included family photos and photos of the village.


Tobe Snow, President of Cincinnati Chapter of Hadassah, presented beautiful Hadassah certificates Suzanne,  Chen and Tomer to thank them for their presentations.
