Our Projects

Bat Mitzvah Project

We believe that girls approaching their bat mitvah are at an important stage in developing their personal and Jewish identity. Therefore, we have created a mother-daughter bat mitzvah program that is a one of its kind in Be’er Sheva. During each session of the program, the participants study Jewish text followed by a related artistic project. The program allows mothers and daughters to share quality bonding time and to reflect on the spiritual significance of the upcoming milestone together. 

Judaism and Torah Enrichment Program

We have introduced an innovative program called “Parasha Veyetzira” into the afterschool program of a local Be’er Sheva public school.  Each week, students discuss a particular theme from the weekly Torah portion and then do a corresponding artistic project. The focus of the program is on creativity and relevance through experiential learning and community building.

Community Garden

In 2013, we established a community garden transforming a neglected school property into a beautiful outdoor space. The garden has since served as a platform to share Jewish values and create a learning environment that encourages participation and teamwork. The garden provides an outlet for students to learn Torah through agriculturally centered mitzvot while staying in a safe space during after school hours.
