There’s a Blessing to Yeka! Over 100 Jewish girls in Ukraine got to experience a summer of unlimited love, connection, joy, warmth of Yiddishkeit and family. It was extremely touching to watch one of the girls who in a regular situation would be called the problem child, be looked at for who she actually was and loved for it. The time when one of the girls from a non Religeous background made up a song about the power of prayer. I feel chills when I think about the day that over 10 girls were gifted with their Jewish Identity, their name. On that day we sang “Im happy to be a Jew” in the same streets that years ago one could not even imagine saying. Yeka opens up my eyes to the reality that no matter how different we are on the outside - dress, language, personality’s - we can truly connect with eachother on a very deep level.
As the girls loaded the bus back from Yeka summer, one of my campers asked me through her tears if I would be returning for Yeka winter and I feel so blessed to have the ability to now. As the girls do not have the funds to pay on their own, us counselors are raising $2,000 to make Yeka winter happen.
Please join me in bringing light and warmth into our girls cold winter in Ukraine this year! Thank you!
