In a life where they have experienced repeated: "No's!"

Yeka shows them, "Yes!"
Yes, You are valued
Yes, You will dance from joy
Yes, You will sing your heart away
Yes, You can be a proud Jew
Yes, You are family

Poverty, drug and alcohol abuse, war and lack of support have plagued many parts of Ukraine. Hundreds of Jewish children across Ukraine have been left neglected, abused, orphaned, or are living in unhealthy home environments.
Heeding to the Lubavitcher's Rebbe call that "No Jewish child should be forgotten or given up on," Yeka opened its doors.
For 3 weeks every summer and 1 week in the winter Yeka provides a haven of warmth, laughter, and security for these children. Yeka creates a family rooted in deep connections and lifted spirits, infusing these children with the support and tools they need to help them flourish beyond the unfortunate circumstances of their life. Through forming close bonds, experiencing the joys of Judaism, and loads of fun, Yeka leaves an indelible mark on the life of each girl.

Being that campers lack the necessary funds to cover the budget, Yeka relies heavily on the kindness of your donations. Please partner with us and help spread love and joy to those who need the extra dose.

We appreciate any amount you can give and thank you for your partnership.

Thank you for helping me reach my personal goal of 2,000 dollars.
May G-d repay you manifold for your kindness.
