Bet Shemesh is dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged boys
and helping them reach their full potential.
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” –

Maimonides (the Rambam z’l)

Please watch our latest video and read our letter below and respond kindly …

This is a short tribute for a Great Cause and there founders-

Dr. David J. Portowicz – Chairman
Dr. David J. Portowicz - ChairmanDr. David J. Portowicz co-founded the Jaffa Institute in 1982 and orchestrated it’s merger with the Bet Shemesh Educational and Residential Center in 1986. Prior to establishing the Jaffa Institute, Dr. Portowicz, an American-born rabbi with a Ph.D. in social work, was the director of the Jewish Community Center of Jaffa. Today, he is acting Chairman of the Jaffa Institute and the Bet Shemesh Center, and lecturer in the School of Social Work at Bar Ilan University; a post he has occupied for over thirty years. “Students here are given the chance, for the first time in their lives, to be part a nurturing community. The best way to help these children is to say ‘you are our son, you are our family'”.

Rabbi Avi Burstein – Founder
Rav Yemin Akrish- Rosh YeshivaRabbi Avi Burstein founded the Bet Shemesh Educational and Residential Center over 20 years ago. From the beginning, his vision was to provide beyond a standard education. He created a supportive boarding school for 10 at-risk boys, which, over the years, grew to be a warm home with a nurturing family of over 300 students per year. “Hundreds of graduates still have a strong connection to the Center; they are the proof that we are one big family. I dream and pray that this educational center will continue to support and advance hundreds of students for many years to come.”

                                                                                    Dear kind friends this just one of the causes i want you to help…

I (eli goldsmith) work for the Jaffa Institute We have over 30 programs helping 4,000 Israeli citizens a year, if you cannot come to volunteer in Israel short/long-term then you can still connect from home! We have had groups make challahs, sell them at shul and donate the proceeds to our Food programs. There have been Mother’s Day sales for our parenting program, garage sales to adopt a kid, fashion shows conducted to adopt an at-risk teenager at our girls hostel, fun packs sent with notes in Hebrew, walks organized for the Jaffa Institute’s after-school programs and more. It is all up to your group and their interests.

The Jaffa Institute is also currently funding the Bar Mitzvah’s of 28 Ethiopian Immigrant children this summer at its sister organization that it founded, Bet Shemesh . A Bar Mitzvah costs$944/child and includes the ceremony, a new pair of tefilin, a breakfast for them and their families and an educational field trip. It would be amazing if you or anyone you know could sponsor a child and give them a really special day! Be in touch about this mitzvah opportunity and read below how to make a difference now!

I look forward to being in touch.
