Project Spotlight: Kfar Sitrin Home for Boys

Fellowship-funded Kfar Sitrin is a home for boys ages 14-18 who made aliyah (immigrated to Israel) from the former Soviet Union without their parents or any other family. Nearly all of the boys have lost a mother or father or come from a very poor or dysfunctional family. As these young men seek a better, more stable life in Israel, this home provides education, assistance in successfully entering into Israeli society, and a loving community.

Rabbi Eckstein recently visited this Fellowship-supported facility, which is currently home to 225 boys. One of the dormitories is dilapidated and in need of renovations to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the 70 boys living there. While meeting with the staff and residents, and even playing soccer with the boys, Rabbi Eckstein promised to try to raise the money for the renovations.
