Contributions can be sent to P.O. Box 947, Huntington, WV 25713.

Please join us via Zoom Sunday, October 17th from 1:00 – 2:00 pm! (EDT)

We will start with a Zoom into the Kalisher Absorption Center in Israel!  We will then hear from Kedra Singer, originally from Poca, West Virginia and now a member of the JFNA National Young Leadership Cabinet, about her Mission trip with The Jewish Agency of Israel to Paris and London!         

Through your generosity last year we were able to help fund the much-needed repairs and renovations of the Youth Club at the Kalisher Absorption Center. Most of the children who live at the center arrive from impoverished circumstances and with little or no education. Your donations were used to create a welcoming, properly equipped space to support the social and academic needs of the Ethiopian children. The Kalisher Center provides the children it serves with comprehensive services and in-depth interventions to lay the foundations they need to successfully begin new lives in the Jewish homeland. Ethiopian Aliyah continues to grow and the need for this center and its services grows with it. 

Please join us as we meet members of our Jewish family who left Ethiopia to fulfill a dream of living in Israel and also hear from Kedra Singer about life for our Jewish families in Paris and London in these challenging times!

Currently, 230 Ethiopian olim live at the center—93 under the age of 18.  Most of the children who live at the center arrive from impoverished circumstances and with little or no education.  The Kalisher Center provides the children with comprehensive services and in-depth interventions to lay the foundations they need to successfully begin new lives in the Jewish homeland.

Please join us as we meet members of our Jewish family who left Ethiopia to fulfill a dream of living in Israel.
