Project of the Month

These programs allow talented underprivileged teenagers to fulfill their potential by providing them with a challenging program of enrichment and leadership training at the Ruppin Institute of Marine Science. Talented 7th graders from all backgrounds of Israeli society in the lower socio-economic levels are chosen - programs run for 2 years.

Beer Sheva

Beer Sheva is the home of ESRA's newest Branch which met for the first time in January 2018.

Meetings will take place at members' homes until we can find a regular meeting place.   

Our new committee decided to start a small project. We have a very large Ethiopian populace in Beer Sheva and we are looking for ways to help them acclimate. A group of us visited the Kalisher Absorption Center which houses over 200 Ethiopians. Several volunteers are willing to go visit and mingle with the Ethiopian seniors (retirees) at their social coffee time twice a week.

We welcome any English speakers living in and around the Beer Sheva area to get in touch with us and we look forward to hearing any ideas and suggestions you might have.
