It was indeed a very emotionally charged ceremony for all involved: for the students, who completed an important stage of their lives; for the proud parents who worked hand in hand with their children, and last but not least, for our WIZO staff, who invested their time and effort into bringing out the best of each of the students and helped them overcome their difficulties.

We were very proud to see how our students, who came to WIZO Achuzat Yeladim in need of help and support, managed to turn their lives around for the better and thanks to our WIZO values, have learned to give back to society.

A very special visit to Budapest in celebration of WIZO Hungary's 25th anniversary

We had a marvelous celebration and heard from our WIZO instructors, teachers, and social workers and other members of WIZO staff who work tirelessly to support Israelis every day and ensure a bright tomorrow for Israeli society – from birth to golden age.

On Monday, I appeared before the Knesset's Education Committee to speak out about the chronic underfunding of special education in Israel.

Following months of campaigning and repeated visits to the Knesset, the Committee for Labor, Welfare and Health unanimously voted in favor of a new bill that is set to introduce wide changes into the early childhood education.

Liat wore new clothes that were bought specially for her. She was all made up by a professional cosmetician that teaches our pupils. Close family relatives also came to celebrate with Liat in this moving evening. That evening Shy Liat never stopped smiling, she was so happy.

Our greatest reward is the great privilege of educating children and adolescents, and to see them grow and thrive, and bloom.

Our graduates rejoice, with beaming faces and with bright eyes, full of pride after completing high school and with a plethora of thanks to the staff that virtually saved them

June 8, 2017 will be remembered as a very important date for the Jewish community in Buenos Aires, and perhaps for the entire Jewish world
