  • Jacksonville teen feels right at home in the homeland

    I don’t think I can find the right words to explain how thankful I am to have been able to participate in the Tikkun Olam program this past summer as the friendships I made through the program will last a lifetime. Over the course of a month, I got to know and grew incredibly close to some amazing people. They are all so unique and amazing in their own special way and share a special place in my heart.

    Anna Bondar knows very well just how critical it is for Ukraine’s Jews to have a vibrant Jewish community and cultural hub. “Last year [2016] was not the easiest year for the country, so it’s important people know they have a place where they can receive support, talk to other members of the Jewish community, and forget about their problems for a while,” said Bondar, the 30-year-old director of the Halom Jewish Community Center (JCC) in central Kiev.
