Picture of the Month

Our picture of the month comes from Bayit Vegan—the football pitch of Beitar Jerusalem, who hosted the Jerusalem Region's 2nd tournament of the school year. The professional footballers spoke with our program participants and photographed with them. This picture was posted on our Instagram and Facebook. Please follow us!

Stories from the Field A new team, which joined us this year, is the North Tali School's team, from Jerusalem's Pisgat Ze'ev neighborhood. The study center is run by two wonderful volunteers - Shir from Ruach Tova and Eden from the Israeli Scouts Movement.

This is the first year in Tiberias and the first team from the city to run our program is the Noam School for Boys' team.

The Neta'im School's study center in Beersheva is run by tutors from three different frameworks - Michal from the Shvilim program at Kaye College, Inbal from Ruach Tova, and Dana from the public activists program at Ben Gurion University. Good luck to these three amazing women!

Lera volunteers as a tutor in the Yavnieli School's team's study center in Haifa. The school joined the program this year. In addition to volunteering though the Shachak Immigrants Scholarship in partnership with the Student Administration, Lera is studying Industrial Engineering and Management at the Technion.

They invest infinite time and energy in creating successful activities for the children!"

Volunteer of the Week Asmaa Amariya. "I enjoy meeting with the kids each time. They are full of smiles when we meet. I am pleased I was given this opportunity to be part of such work which positively influences the children from my town." Thus shared our volunteer of the week, Asmaa Amariya from the town of Ibtin, tutoring in the town's team's study center through her national service. Guy, the Western Galilee Regional Manager, explained his choice of Asmaa: "She comes with a very strong sense of volunteerism and is full of life.
