Over the years, we have enjoyed many moments of nachess from our WIZO institutions, among them our schools, which year after year have been receiving various prizes and awards.

This record of accomplishments does not make us complacent but eager and even more determined to provide all that is necessary for our pupils to reach new heights.

This past month, we received the latest award in our chain of achievements when Israel's Ministry of Education announced that CHW Hadassim Youth Village, sponsored by Canadian Hadassah-WIZO, was selected as winner of the prestigious “Pras HaChinuch” – the National Education Award!

The award, which is the highest possible honor that can be conferred upon an educational institution in Israel, comes after the school won the Ministry's Excellence Award for three consecutive years.

CHW Hadassim received this award after it was nominated by the Rural Educational Authority to represent them in the national competition.

In his congratulatory letter, Boaz Colombus, Inspector of the District's State Educational Authority and Chairperson of the Authority's Award Committee, praised CHW Hadassim: "For us, at the Rural Educational Authority, you [CHW Hadassim] are an example for excellence in education and for leading a professional and outstanding team that successfully combines educational content with values both within the youth village and in the local community."

It is very timely that CHW Hadassim receives this exceptional award in the 70th year of Israel's independence as the history of Hadassim is intertwined with the history of the State of Israel.

CHW Hadassim was established in 1947, the year before Israel was founded. Ever since, the youth village has absorbed waves of immigration, continually changing and readapting itself in order to meet the needs of the times.

I would like to thank and congratulate our staff and teams in CHW Hadassim, headed by Ze'ev Twito, Director of CHW Hadassim Youth Village and Canadian Hadassah-WIZO for their ongoing support and commitment.

La Aldea juvenil CHW Hadassim ganó el prestigioso Premio Nacional de Educación

En el curso de los años, nuestras instituciones WIZO nos han dado muchas satisfacciones. Nuestras escuelas han recibido año tras año numerosos premios y reconocimientos. Estos logros nos entusiasman y nos refuerzan para seguir haciendo todo lo necesario para que nuestros alumnos logren nuevos éxitos.

El mes pasado, el Ministerio de Educación de Israel anunció que la aldea juvenil CHW Hadassim, patrocinada por Hadassah WIZO Canadá, ha sido seleccionada como la ganadora de este prestigioso “Pras Hajinuj”, el Premio Nacional de Educación.

Hadassim recibe este premio tras haber sido nominada por la Autoridad Educativa Rural como su representante en la competencia nacional y tras haber ganado durante tres años consecutivos el Premio de Excelencia del Ministerio. Este es el mayor reconocimiento que puede recibir una institución educativa en Israel.

Boaz Colombus, el Inspector de la autoridad educativa del distrito y presidente del Comité de selección del Premio, elogió a Hadassim: “Para nosotros, en la Autoridad Educativa Rural, ustedes (CHW Hadassim) son un ejemplo de excelencia en educación, vuestro fantástico equipo profesional combina perfectamente contenidos educativos con valores, tanto en la aldea juvenil como en la comunidad local.”

Nuestra aldea juvenil, cuya historia está íntimamente ligada a la de nuestro Estado recibe, muy simbólicamente, este excepcional reconocimiento en el 70° aniversario de la independencia de Israel.

Efectivamente, CHW Hadassim fue fundada en 1947. Desde entonces, la aldea juvenil ha absorbido numerosas olas de inmigración, cambiando y readaptándose constantemente.

Quiero agradecer y felicitar a nuestro equipo profesional, dirigido por Zeev Twito, Director de la aldea juvenil CHW Hadassim y a Hadassah-WIZO Canadá por su compromiso y su continuo apoyo.
