TY NET SERVICES Bea, 84 Boca Raton
Last March, Bea had to face the fact that she didn’t feel safe driving anymore, so she took herself off the road and gave up her car. “It was very difficult because I don’t have family here to rely on,” she explains. “My children live out of state and I wasn’t sure how I’d get around until I found out about the transportation services through the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County. When I need to go on a doctor’s appointment, to the grocery store or anywhere important, they arrange a ride for me and other seniors in our area.” Bea says the driver picks her up at her doorstep, and brings her back. He helps her in and out of the van and makes sure she feels safe. The service helps her live independently and she says it’s a big comfort for her children to know their mother has reliable transportation by people who they can trust. “I want to say THANK YOU to all of the donors who contribute. Thank you for caring!” says Bea.

& LEARNING Terri, 21 Boca Raton Five years ago, Terri’s life was shattered when her father was shot at a local synagogue on Rosh Hashanah. He died as a result nine months later, and, according to Terri, so did her connection to Judaism. “I left my faith, became depressed and felt completely lost.” Terri says it wasn’t until a friend brought her to Hillel, an organization that promotes Jewish life on campus, that she began to find her way again. “I felt such a strong connection to the other students… I had an instant support system; I went almost every day. Hillel is what turned me around and, since then, it’s become like a second home.“ Through Hillel, Terri also discovered Birthright Israel and went to visit the Jewish homeland for the first time. “It was a life-alerting trip in every way. It was where I also met some of my very best friends. Now I’m an intern with Hillel, working to engage other students and to share my story and my love for this important organization.”

R GLOBAL FAMILY Olga, 28 Israel
Olga grew up in Belarus in the former Soviet Union, a place where there was a very small Jewish community and limited Jewish resources. She vividly recalls a childhood friend announcing that she didn’t want to play with her because she heard she was Jewish. “I remember crying and telling her I am not Jewish; I am a good girl!” Olga grew up, studied hard and became a doctor — yet she knew something important was missing. Then she found out about the Jewish Agency’s MASA program that helps Jews from around the world spend time studying or working in Israel. The experience provided her with a new community of Jewish friends “that felt like family” and an enthusiasm for her faith and heritage that she never had in Belarus. When the program ended, Olga said she could not imagine returning home. “I realized my soul was in Israel and I was going to make aliyah.”
