Based in Ramat Eshkol, this vibrant Centre was begun in 1973. It has had many incarnations, its current one a place where women of Golden Age can meet and take part in activities.
These include Israeli dancing, English classes, Bible Studies and activities based around the many Jewish holidays throughout the year. Managed by a volunteer for the past eleven years, the Centre has over 50 regular attendees who have forged friendships and continued their education. To help raise funds the Centre is rented out in the afternoons to a Bridge Club and becomes a synagogue on Shabbat.
It is used for exercise classes, counselling sessions for single parents, senior citizens’ activities, a “Girls in Distress” group and for a special after-school programme under the auspices of Jerusalem’s Welfare Department for children from dysfunctional homes.
