AIPAC

AIPAC’s mission is to strengthen, protect and promote the U.S.-Israel relationship in ways that enhance the security of Israel and the United States. Our staff and citizen activists educate decision makers about the bonds that unite the United States and Israel and how it is in America’s best interest to help ensure that Israel is safe, strong and secure.

AIPAC Policy Conference was March 26 to March 28, 2017 – Our TDD delegation joined thousands of other pro-Israel activists for three of the most important days impacting Israel’s future.

Neve Michael – A Bar or Bat Mitzvah Project for the Whole Family

At Neve Michael, our mission is to create a family-like atmosphere for our children 4 to 18 years that is so sorely missing in their lives, to provide them with the best therapeutic care, develop their young minds, and help them to grow into healthy young adults. We help our children overcome their family misfortunes, restore their capacities for normal physical, emotional, and educational development, and guide them towards a better future.

Set up your child’s Mitzvah Project online at nevemichael.com

Have your friends, relatives and guests donate to Neve Michael in honor of your Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Celebrate your special day and help support 12 children in a family unit for only $300 for one year. For help in setting up your mitzvah project online, please contact Lorelei Ennis at akidsbook@aol.com (V.P. for Neve Michael in the U.S.).

Neve Michael

Jack retired at age 75 and for the next 25 years he was the National Director and Director Emeritus of Neve Michael Children’s Village, U.S.A. Jack has worked tirelessly to raise funds for the children and give them a warm, loving and safe home.

As Jack celebrated his 100th birthday in April, we want to honor him for his extraordinary Labor of Love. Please consider a donation to Neve Michael Children’s Village in Jack’s honor to help build a Learning and Special Needs Education Center for our children. Each donation will be matched by a generous donor, which means your donation will have twice the impact on the lives of our children.

Please send donations to Neve Michael Children’s Village at P.O. Box 260067, Pembroke Pines, FL 33026. Add a note saying you are from Temple Dor Dorim. We have many families from our temple, who have sponsored children and family units, since 2004. With much gratitude and appreciation for your support. It has made a world of difference!
