Temple Beth Tikvah (4550 Jog Road, Greenacres) invites the community to a presentation on homelessness in Israel on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. The temple will welcome back Yaara Levy, shlicha (emissary) to the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, as guest speaker.
Levy served in the medical corps as a combat medic, and in her last year in the Israeli military, she was the regimental medicine NCO.
A graduate of Hebrew University in Jerusalem with a degree in social work, Levy’s field work was with high school teenagers and with young homeless women who had been sexually abused.
Levy’s program highlights Temple Beth Tikvah’s stance in the forefront of Jewish adult education through its Gladys Lilian education programs and its new series, “In Israel.” Fred Eisinger, the temple’s Zionism chair, said that, “Offering singles, young couples and families with children programs that connect them with Israel in terms of its diverse population and how they live is very important.”
This program is sponsored by the Israel Program Center of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County. All “In Israel” programs are open to the community at no cost.
