Welcome Open Hearts, Open Homes Teens

It’s the b’nai mitzvah summer for Open Hearts, Open Homes!

The program that offers respite and home hospitality in our community to Israeli teens impacted by violence and terror has welcomed over 300 young people during the past 12 summers.

Now, as we celebrate the 13th year of the program, we again welcome two groups of Israeli teens who again are faced with challenges and threats at home.

While these teens embody the resilience of the Israeli people, they appreciate the comfort and support of American families in our own community.

Thank you to our host families and to our donors who make this program possible.
