Purim Parties for At-Risk Kids

Children make traditional Hamantaschen cookies at the Fellowship-supported Afikim after-school center IFCJ

The Fellowship has been supporting the Afikim after-school program for at-risk children from needy families for many years now. At this center, the kids receive a hot meal, academic help, life-skills classes, and activities such as music and art – and the parents attend weekly seminars on parenting, home management, and workplace skills.

This after-school center recently hosted a Purim party for the students, where they dressed in costume, made Hamantaschen cookies, and discussed the biblical story of Esther, the basis for this Jewish holiday. Your faithful support of The Fellowship provides this kind of enriching experiences for families in need throughout Israel every day.
