As a long time volunteer for AMIT Women in Israel, I have received tremendous satisfaction knowing I am helping to educate Israeli youth to know who they are, where they come from and why they are here. Through AMIT's teaching of Jewish values, we hope to strengthen the fabric of Israeli society.
I am a graduate of the AMIT organization, formerly the Mizrachi Women Organization of America. I was educated at Kfar Batya - AMIT's flagship Youth village - in years 1955-58. Kfar Batya made me the well-rounded Israeli that I am today. I learned a lot at Kfar Batya, mainly - to be independent and a fruitful contributor to Israeli society. AMIT and Kfar Batya set the course for my development as a Jewish human being, with repercussions across the world of today, where I teach societies across the world about decent and responsible Jewish living.
I have been a donor for many years. I have visited Amit schools and youth villages in Israel and seen first hand where our donor dollars are going. The value that these kids are getting from our donations is exceptional.
I have known about Amit since it was called the Mizrachi Women's Organization of America. It has always been the premier religious and technological educational organization in Israel and I have visited almost every one of Amit's 70 schools and youth villages. I have admired the caring and dedication of its teachers and counselors, and have seen for myself the positive effect that Amit's educational approach has had on several generations of children in Israel.
I have visited Amit schools and residences and the surrogate parents seem to be extremely caring individuals dedicated to give the children under their wing the best possible warmth and supervision. My parents have been longstanding supporters of Amit and have dedicated a playground. I have been a volunteer for Amit for over 20 years helping plan events and raise funds. My brother's mother-in-law was a principal of an Amit school for many years and was featured in one of their magazines for the quality of the school she ran.
Amit supports education throughout Israel by building schools and helping students learn lifelong career skills. My nephew is learning in an Amit School and he is getting an excellent education. I saw a science fair by these students and they are on the forefront of making some great technological breakthroughs one day.
AMIT is unique in the role volunteers play in every aspect of the organization. It is financially responsibleand has been successful in its mission of providing children of all backgrounds in Israel with quality education in its schools across the country, stressing tolerance and Jewish values. I have been impressed on my many visits to the schools by the dedication of the teachers,the enthusiasm of the students and the accomplishments of raising the level of education. This is an organization that is truly making a difference in the lives of the children in Israel. ,
Amit is an organization with a defined focus that it adheres to. The money Amit raises helps children who are trapped in difficult situations become successful and contributing members of society.
