WIZO South Africa: Young WIZO Durban Outdoor Movie Night

Ahavah Tahorah, WIZO Durban's youngest and newest branch, hosted an outdoor movie night - with buttery popcorn

March 09, 2019

WIZO Durban's youngest and newest branch, Ahavah Tahorah, held an incredibly successful inaugural event last Saturday. They hosted an Outdoor Movie Night at The Umhlanga Jewish Centre, complete with buttery popcorn!


Led by Tyra Nackan, these young wonder women approached us to start their own fundraising group. Tyra Nackman's mother, Mandy Nackman, is also a committed WIZO woman and was part of the 2018 Aviv Young Leadership Mission. It is an inspiration to see how WIZO really does run in the Nackman family!

Since their inauguration in Chanukah 2018, these young WIZO women have been planning their first fundraiser.  A stormy night was no problem for these tenacious young women! A giant inflatable screen was mounted on the deck whilst moviegoers where kept snug undercover. Copious amounts of fresh popcorn, hot chocolate, chips, sweets and cold drinks were on offer.  The Greatest Showman was screened and was a big hit with one and all!

Proceeds of this amazing initiative will be going to their specially chosen beneficiary, the WIZO Chorley Day Care Centre in Israel who are in desperate need of a new floor and general repairs. We wish them every success and many years of doing acts of ‘chesed’ and connection to Israel as young WIZO Women.
