Members Together: Youth Aliyah with Carol Goodman Kaufman

Sunday, February 14, 2021 2 Adar 5781

9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

The Ultimate Zionist Project: Rescuing Jewish Children Youth Aliyah’s mission of rescuing children didn’t stop with the end of World War II. A third of our student population comes to us from from the Former Soviet Union. Their parents are sending them to Israel — alone — because it is no longer safe to live as a Jew in their home countries. And, as difficult as it is to accept, over 400,000 children in Israel today are registered with municipal social services, suffering from physical and sexual abuse, neglect, substance abuse, and the effects of prostitution. These youth engage in high-risk behaviors, have low educational achievements, and suffer from emotional or social problems. At Hadassah’s youth villages we offer not just food and shelter. We provide academic education, vocational training, counseling, therapeutic programming, and other support services. The work of Youth Aliyah is critical. Failure is not an option. Israel needs physically and emotionally healthy adults to ensure a safe and secure future for all within her borders.
