The end-of-year party in June at the Neve ESRA Afternoon Care Center for children at risk in Modiin was well attended. Students accompanied by parents and siblings listened intently as the numerous speakers praised the accomplishments of the Center over the past school year, emphasizing that the students could achieve anything that they put their minds to and that they should never to giveup on their dreams. Whilst also saying goodbye to the older studentswho were "graduating" from the Center, the focus of the evening was on the future of Neve ESRA and its young students.

As an end-of-year parting gift, ESRA handed out basketballs to all the students.

The professional, Ilan ben Saadon, and Modiin ESRA co-chair, Jackie Klein, together with our English Enrichment Coordinator, Marsha Goldstein. Unable to attend was Tina Barnett, Marsha's partner in the Enrichment program. Together they have added so much to the children's' lives.
