Neve Hanna Children Say "Todah"

Earlier this year, MERCAZ members and supporters were encouraged to participate in the annual American Zionist Movement's Purim Campaign, which this year included among its beneficiaries the Masorti-affiliated Neve Hanna, a residential village for children from troubled family backgrounds located in the Negev city of Kiryat Gat. Donations received provided "mishloach manot" gift packages, delivered by a group of USY NATIV students, to the more than one hundred children living and studying at the institution.

Yoav Ende, a Schechter Institute rabbinical student and the Masorti counselor at Neve Hanna, writes: "The mishloach manot visit was a great success. The 'Nativnikim' came on Sunday which was the first day after our kids came back from their Purim holiday, helping the kids feel special and loved as they came back to the children's home. The mishlochey manot looked beautiful and were rich with sweets and games. Thank you - AZM, WZO, MERCAZ and NATIV - for making our kids feel special!"
