Happy Purim from Emunah's Children!

The past week in Emunah's projects has been full of laughs, fun and madness!! 

The homes, with the help of our wonderful Bnot sherut transformed into Space, Circus, Woods. 

"Hunt the Madrich" was held in Emunah Afula and Emunah Neve Landy : The tradition is that the staff dress up and then hide in full sight through the toen center. The children compete to see who can find the most disguised staff.

Achuzat Sarah held a big Purim staging: the wedding of Achuz and Sarah!!

For the second year in a row, a student from the graphic arts department at the Emunah College won first place in the contest for the Annual Holocaust Day Memorial Poster.
Hundreds of artists from all over Israel and the world compete. 
The name of the student is Bat El Atar.
This year's theme , in honor of the 70th anniversary was The Integration of Holocaust Survivors to the Establishment of the State of Israel.
Bat El's minimalist poster cuts right to the heart of the subject. Her poster depicts two stars- the yellow star of David that Jews in Europe were forced to wear during the Holocaust and the blue Star of David, represented on the flag of Israel as the symbol of our rebirth and endurance. The stars are halves and unconnected to invite the conversation in this "open space" of the connection between the Holocaust and the establishment of the State of Israel.
Kol hakavod to Bat El Atar and to the dedicated staff at the Emunah College.

Continuing to highlight the Heroes of Emunah, meet Yehuda Kohn, director of Emunah Bet Saba - Elazraki!
Yehuda Kohn, the director and leader of the children at Bet Elazraki since 1991, is everyone´s father, and the spirit of the home. Yehuda is a trained educator and administrator. He devoted his entire life to working with children and youth at risk.

After serving as a rabbi, educator, and vice principal of the Technological College at Sitrin Youth Village for adolescent boys, he was sent to Brazil by the Department for Diaspora Education & Culture and the Zionist Organization, and then later, in 1991, to Bet Elazraki Children´s.

Yehuda and his wife, Riki, raised five beautiful children of their own, and 180 children from the home. Yehuda´s door is always open to every boy and girl. They are his entire universe. Yehuda is not just a manager and director in his daily routine he wears several "hats". He always plays the part of the kind, compassionate, loving and devoted father, but sometimes he must also be a strict educator who instills values and draws the lines, but mostly Yehuda is the person who gives the children hope. His ability to alternate between these roles while continuing to be loved and respected by the children is astounding.

Yehuda´s motto is always "give them the best”. Whether it´s the most scented fabric softener to fill the children´s homes with a wonderful fragrance, or the most suited tutors and teachers, no matter what the cost, Yehuda only provides our children with the very best. Yehuda´s work at the children´s home is never-ending, uncompromising and unfailing. "You can always give more”, Yehuda likes to say.

Four major functions work alongside Yehuda. They are responsible for the learning, stability and order, emotional-therapeutic, household and hygiene of the children. These four subdivisions provide the children at the home an organized, high-quality life.

This past month, the family of the Emunah Children's Center in Afula celebrated their tenth annual concert, "Shir Ad", in a explosion of musical talent, sound, lights and smiles. Over a hundred of boys and girls from the home took their turns on the stage while proud family members, teachers and local members of the community (including the Mayor) applauded them them enthusiastically. It was a musical celebration of Israel’s 70th birthday. Their joyous performance disclosed nothing, not even a hint of their tragic backgrounds, emotional problems or behavioral issues. To anybody who didn't know, they were just a terrific group of kids having fun. Isn't that really all that we want to achieve?
