At the beginning of January, the annual opening event for “Lev Bakehila” – JCT’s Social Justice Project was held in the Jewish Institute for the Blind in Jerusalem. The event marked the opening of a year of rich and varied activities with a record number of over 100 student volunteers. Lev Bakehila is a social activism program for empowering and advancing the rights of Haredim with disabilities. Dr. Zvika Orr and Dr. Adi Finklestein, who head the project, spoke about the activities of the program’s Right’s Center and joint activities with Ezer Mizion for the benefit of people with disabilities.
The activities of Lev Bakehila are made possible by a grant from the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater MetroWest NJ.
