Be a Hero with the Aleh Foundation

Korshad Temple Sinai photo

This Rosh Hashana you can commit to be a hero, just like Fariba and Alexa Khorshad, Ariel and Adir Settenbrino and more! Read about the amazing volunteers of the Aleh Foundation.

Los Angeles Youth Rally at Temple Sinai for Special Children in Israel

To our dear sisters and brothers, the children of Aleh in Israel,

Shalom, I would like to introduce you to my sister, Alexa Khorshad who is ten years old and myself Rachel Khorshad, I am eleven years old. This past Hannukah while attending Hebrew school at Sinai Temple in Los Angels, we decided to pick a Mitzvah project of our own and help children with special needs. We were lucky to choose The Aleh Foundation since it is so close to our hearts. For the past few months whenever we could get away from school work, we have been going door to door, to people we knew or didn’t know, to our friends and family and to meetings at the temple. We introduced people to Aleh Foundation and explained the help they give to their children. We have been welcomed with open arms at many places and we have received donations anywhere from $3.00 to couple of hundred dollars. We are so privileged to present you a check in the amount of $4,026.00. We hope that this donation would help you in so many ways, we also wish it would bring a smile to your face the same way that it made us smile. We love you and we hope to visit you in Israel in the near future. Sincerely,

Alexa and Rachel Khorshad

I am so excited to tell you the wonderful news that my daughters Rachel and Alexa have raised on behalf of the special children from your Foundation over $4,026.00 and still growing!  You should see the sparkle in my daughters eyes when they make a speech in our own Temple Sinai here in Los Angeles and they collect money. I have to tell you that people have been very nice and generous to them.

Love,

Fariba Khorshad

 

Adir Schwarts–Settenbrino chose to celebrate his Bar Mitzvah in Jerusalem with a disabled Israeli twin a few months ago. Back in 2009 Adir chose Aleh Foundation as his pet project when he glowingly delivered a tribute to a distinguished crowd of participants that filled the ballroom to honor his mom, Susan Settenbrino.

Since then the Davies and Settenbrinos have celebrated a Bar Mitzvah for their older son Ariel in Jerusalem in conjunction with a disabled ALEH boy and have served as chairpeople at many Aleh Foundation functions. Adir gave up his Bar Mitzvah with friends to twin it with a disabled child “because when you have it by yourself, getting all the attention and gifts, you feel too self centered,” explains the Joseph Kushner 8th grader.

Adir’s Twin, Moshe, who suffers from epilepsy, lives in Aleh Gedera Center in Israel. Adir’s gift of $2,500.00 will go towards purchasing equipment for the Snoezelen room at Moshe’s facility. Snoezelen is a therapeutic multi-sensory room that highlights the senses while creating an atmosphere of relaxation and calm. To learn more about Twinning Bar Mitzvahs call 1-800-317-ALEH, or visit the website at www.alehfoundationusa.org.

Aleh is Israel’s foremost provider of care, treatment and education of severely disabled infants, children and young adults.  Their spacious, modern centers in Jerusalem, Bnei Brak, Gedera and the Negev are home to more than 650 special children, with thousands more attending Aleh’s facilities each day for treatment and education.  All proceeds from this event will go to the capital fund to build the new Special Education School Campus in Pardes Katz, 10 minutes from Tel Aviv.  The government was so impressed with the plans for the new school that they donated a large tract of land for the construction. This beautiful new complex, which is desperately needed, will contain 24 classrooms, an Olympic-sized therapeutic swimming pool, rooftop playground and much more. Please sponsor much needed equipment  for a disabled child. http://www.alehfoundationusa.org/PRG_eqiupment.html

Call 718-851-4596 to volunteer or send your contributions to the Aleh Foundation headquarters at 5317 13th Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11219.

  1. WE ARE AMAZED AT THE YOUNG CHILDREN'S DRIVE TO DO CHESED! JOIN THESE WONDERFUL CHILDREN IN TIKUN OLAM! CALL 800-317-ALEH TO BE A HERO THIS ROSH HASHANA.

  2. The young people who help the young people of Aleh are doing beautiful acts of chesed, for which the Jewish people are known. That they are helping others is obvious. Perhaps less obvious is the enormous way in which they are helping to shape their own character in the way of Torah. And by publicizing this Aleh is not only helping the children they serve but others who will follow this beautiful expample.
    In short, the whole thing is AWESOME–a win-win-win situation.

  3. It's very obvious that you have wonderful values and people like you are the cornerstones of our heritage and the existence of such fine institutions like Aleh Foundationusa! To learn more visit http://www.alehfoundationusa.org
