You guys have turned an Orphanage into an Eishet Chayil factory. Taking shattered little girls and making them Women of Valor. The very definition of Tikkun Olam.
I opened my email and noticed a lovely email in my inbox from one of our donors. When I read what he wrote, I realized how well said Carl’s words were. He said, “You guys have turned an Orphanage into an Eishet Chayil factory. Taking shattered little girls and making them Women of Valor. The very definition of Tikkun Olam.”
Our Girls Orphanage in Israel is almost like a factory. Our staff who work around the clock to tend to all the girls’ needs.
On board we have:
- a housemother
- an educational director
- someone to be in touch with the girls’ schools
- a cook
- a nurse
- program directors
- a special activity director
- music therapists
- pet therapists
- social workers
- computer teachers
- someone to shop with them and make sure they have proper clothing.
Together we work as a team at the Orphanage. Therefore, we can ensure that each girl has what she needs to prosper. To become a wonderful wife, a mother and an upstanding and successful citizen of Israel.
Looking back at my involvement with the Lev LaLev Girls Orphanage and Jewish charity in Israel over the past eleven years, has shown me how true Carl’s words are. I have watched countless young girls come into the home broken, neglected, and often abused with no one to care for them. After going through the Lev LaLev “Eishet Chayil factory”, those same girls leave as mature women, ready to take on the world.
In the past year alone, we have watched over six of our girls marry and build homes of their own. Many arrived at the orphanage in Israel as shattered girls. We could never have dreamed that we would see them get to this great stage in life. Most importantly, with the tremendous support and care of our donors and staff over their years at Lev Lalev, these girls are all flourishing married women who are doing incredibly well today. (One of these girls already had a beautiful baby boy!)
In other words, it is not just those who got married that define the success of Lev LaLev. For instance, we have a girl in medical school, girls running special education programs (who excel because they can relate to those less fortunate), and some who even stay with us and get jobs at the Orphanage. Therefore, the girls adore the alumni staff members because they know how to achieve our goal by providing the best care for our girls.
In conclusion, by donating to help the girls at the Orphanage in Israel, you are literally changing their lives, turning them from being insecure little girls to a real “Women of Valor”.
