Yad Ezra president Ruth Kahn of
Bloomfield Hills said it is the one-on-
one interaction with the clients that
makes volunteering such a pleasure at
Yad Ezra. "It's a wonderful opportunity
to meet and get to know a variety of
Jewish people in the community," she
Several new Russian immigrants
expressed to Kahn a double pleasure
from the project. In addition to getting
the food parcels, they said that for the
first time they were treated well because
they were Jewish.
Joining the volunteers this year was
another first: a group of 15 teens who
called asking to help. A diverse group of
Jewish and non-Jewish, Asian and
Indian students who are members of the
National Honor Society at Bloomfield
Hills Lahser High School arrived Sunday
and helped pack more than 800 parcels,
said Yad Ezra past president Jeffery
Appel of Huntington Woods, who
accompanied the teens.
Appel was impressed by the teens'
ingenuity in organizing themselves to
pack the parcels and the questions they
asked about Passover as well.
"And the clients were so grateful and
appreciative, feeling part of the greater
Jewish community regardless of their
level of observance," he said. "It was all
very touching." ❑
They need your help.
Children should not be afraid. They should not be afraid
to walk to school, ride the bus or go out and play. Children
like David and Avi should be allowed to be children.
But it is hard to be a child in Israel when lives are
being shattered by terrorist acts. With your help, there
is hope. Through your generosity, Jewish National Fund
will continue to construct security roads along Israel's
northern border with Lebanon, so children and their
parents can travel safely to school and to work. JNF will
continue building playgrounds, parks and green spaces
where families can gather safely and enjoy simple
pleasures. With your help, we can give children like
David and Avi hope for a safer world. We can give them
a chance to be children again.
Over 100 years ago, JNF made a promise to be the
caretaker of the land of Israel on behalf of the Jewish
people. Please make your contribution today so JNF can
keep that promise. In Israel, David and Avi need more
than a blanket to feel secure. They need your help.
