Susan Isaacs, a member of NA’AMAT USA’s San Fernando Valley Council, Eilat Chapter, talked about the organization’s work in behalf of women, children and families in Israel in a recent speech to congregants of Eretz Cultural Center, an Orthodox Persian Temple in Reseda. Isaacs described the scope of NA’AMAT’s charitable activities, which include the operation of day care centers located throughout Israel, as well as technological high schools, health and legal aid clinics, and other programs, all of which receive direct support from NA’AMAT USA.
More than 350 members of Eretz Cultural Center attended the event. Isaacs remarks were translated live into Farsi. Also in attendance were NA’AMAT National Board Member Esther Friedberg, Eilat Chapter President Cipy Baron, San Fernando Valley Council President Rene Peters and Eilat member Gita Waldbaum. The NA’AMAT members talked informally with the orthodox congregants during the kiddush. Several of those in attendance inquired about NA’AMAT membership.
