Diamond & Emerald Magical Celebration

Raquel Rub, President, NA'AMAT USA, S.FL. COUNCIL, has announced that a "DIAMOND and EMERALD MAGICAL CELEBRATION", honoring 9 distinguished members of OR and MAZAL Chapters will be held on Thursday, Jan. 21, 6 pm at the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center. The dinner will highlight NA'AMAT USA: 90 YEARS OF STANDING UP FOR THE WOMEN AND YOUTH OF ISRAEL.

A special guest from Israel, Masha Lubelsky has been invited to highlight the evening's festivities. Lubelsky serves as President of the NA'AMAT SCHOLARSHIP FUND, and is a past national president of NA'AMAT Israel. She has also served as a Member of the Knesset of Israel, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade, advisor to the Minister of Internal Security on matters of Family Violence and was a mediator in Labor Court. She has also been a member of the Jewish Agency's committee since 2006.

The nine honorees are: Bertha Feldman, Adela Katz, Moty Landman, Esther Manopla, Fortuna Menda, Rebeca Minor, Yoly Nothman, Adela Petasne, and Rosita Rosenthal. Serving on the celebration committee are Rebeca Yohai, Matilde Behar, Or Chapter President, and Anabel Peicher, Mazal chapter. Dinner Reservations are $100 per person and can be made with the S. Fl. office at 305-576-6213, or Raquel Rub, 305-965-4779. These two groups represent the Latin American members of the organization here in Florida.

Proceeds will benefit the 90th Anniversary national project, a very special effort to raise funds to build a women's Health Center in the city of Sderot in the western Negev. Studies have found that air raid sirens and explosions have caused severe psychological trauma to the children who live there. Because of the volatile situation in Sderot, there is a serious shortage of doctors and regular health services. NA'AMAT will be renovating an existing building, and our hope is that the Israeli government will match the funds we raise--to make this dream a reality. NA'AMAT''s current Women's Health center in Karmiel will serve as a model for the new facility in Sderot.

'DIAMOND AND EMERALD MAGICAL CELEBRATION"

Raquel Rub, President, S. Florida Council, NA'AMAT USA, has announced that a 'DIAMOND AND EMERALD MAGICAL CELEBRATION", honoring 9 distinguished members of OR and MAZAL chapters will be held on Thursday, January 21, 6 pm at the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center. The dinner will honor NA'AMAT USA: 90 YEARS OF STANDING UP FOR THE WOMEN AND YOUTH OF ISRAEL.

The nine honorees are: Bertha Feldman, Adela Katz, Moty Landman, Esther Manopla, Fortuna Menda, Rebeca Minor, Yoly Nothman, Adela Petasne, and Rosita Rosenthal. Communities represented by the honorees are Sunny Isles, Golden Beach, Aventura, Hollywood, Miami, Miami Beach, and Coral Gables. Serving on the celebration committee and receiving reservations are Rebeca Yohai, Or chapter, Matilde Behar, Or chapter President, and Anabel Peicher, Mazal chapter. Dinner reservations are $100 per person and can be made with the S. Florida NA'AMAT USA office at 305-576-6213 or email naamatusa@gmail. These two NA'AMAT groups represent the Latin American members of the organization in the S. Florida area.

Proceeds will benefit the 90th anniversary project, a very special effort to raise funds to build a Women's Health Center in the city of Sderot in the western Negev. The city has been an ongoing target of rocket attacks by Hamas ad other radical terrorist groups since 2001. Studies have found that air raid sirens and explosion have caused severe psychological trauma to the children who live there. At least 75 percent of children aged 4-18 in Sderot suffer from post-traumatic stress, manifesting itself in any number of ways, sleeping disorders and severe anxiety. The women in Sderot are so preoccupied with the health and welfare of their families, many do not have the time to travel out of their area to seek preventative health care for themselves; in fact the city is infamously referred to as the "Bomb Shelter Capital of the World." But for most of the residents of Sderot, there is no other choice.

Because of the volatile situation in Sderot, there is a serious shortage of doctors and regular health services. NA'AMAT USA, nationally has committed to raise funds to help build a Woman's Health Center in Sderot. NA'AMAT will be renovating an existing building and our hope is that the Israeli government will match the funds we raise--to make this dream a reality. NA'AMAT'S current Women's Health Center in Karmiel will serve as a model for the new facility in Sderot. Women who have had very little health care, who have never even had a mammogram or a complete physical exam will one day be able to get the preventive care they need that this Health Center will provide.

NA'AMAT USA TO SEND DELEGATION TO INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN ISRAEL

MIAMI--JANUARY 21, 2015--NA'AMAT USA will send a delegation of more than 30 members to the annual NA'AMAT International Conference scheduled for February 10-16 in Israel. The delegation will be led by national president Elizabeth Raider, and will include national officers and representatives from chapters across the United States. The NA'AMAT USA delegation will be honored as special guests of the President of Israel, Reuven Rivlin, during the conference's opening session on February 10. Raider will address the group on behalf of NA'AMAT USA and 8 sister countries.

Delegates from NA'AMAT's Southeast Area include Nehama Sasson, Rebecca Yohai from Miami and Raena Zucker, from Boca Raton, Fl.

Raider said that the International Conference provides a unique opportunity to engage with NA'AMAT members from around the world. "It is a time to renew old friendships and make new ones," she observed. "We look forward to witnessing, firsthand, the important work that NA'AMAT is doing in Israel, to meeting Israel's political leaders and to visiting many historic sites."

The NA'AMAT International Conference will bring together leaders of NA'AMAT Israel and its nine sister organizations around the globe. The 7-day conference will feature events in locations across Israel, including groundbreaking ceremonies for a new day care center in Beersheba, a project sponsored by NA'AMAT USA in memory of its past national president, Alice Howard. Other highlights will include a day at the Glickman Center, for the prevention and treatment of domestic violence; a special evening in the Ayanot Youth Village, one of NA'AMAT's boarding schools; and a day in Jerusalem, where NA'AMAT USA will be the guests of the Knesset, Israel's parliament.

In addition to attending these special events, delegates will gather to discuss key issues confronting Israel, women and families, and NA'AMAT's role in meeting those challenges. For members of NA'AMAT USA, the conference will provide an exciting opportunity to experience the fruits of the organization's efforts to promote gender equality and to help women with childcare, legal and family issues, domestic violence and employment issues. "These are exciting times for NA'AMAT and for Israel," said Raider. ''NA'AMAT International continues to lead in the struggle for equality and to improve the lives of women and children."

NA'AMAT USA PROVIDES EMERGENCY FUNDS FOR "OPERATION PROTECTIVE EDGE"

NA'AMAT USA has sent more than $100,000 to its sister organization in Israel to support caregivers in its 233 Day Care Centers serving 18,000 children there, Elizabath Raider, National President, NA'AMAT USA, announced today.

"Our NA'AMAT day care centers are operational only if they have suitable "safe rooms', and the required number of caregivers to move the children within seconds," Raider said. "Additional resources are needed for more caregivers, equipment, supplies, upgrading the construction of safe rooms, and trauma counseling."

NA'AMAT day care centers located more than 40 kilometers from Gaza are open and functioning according to the Home Front Command instructions. A few days ago, a rocket fell approximately 300 meters from a NA'AMAT day care centers in Kfar Shalem, a neighborhood in Tel Aviv. Fortunately, all of the children were unhurt as they were in the safe room when it occurred.

In Yerucham, a developing town in the Negev, red alert sirens were heard several times at noon. Rockets fell all around the area. More than 70 children and babies in NA'AMAT day care centers were sleeping and caregivers had to wake them and take them into shelters.

Members and friends in the United States can contribute by sending a check to NA'AMAT USA, 21515 Vanowen St. Suite 102, Canoga Park, CA. 91303, visiting www.naamat.org/donate, or calling NA'AMAT's toll free number, 844-777-5222. In Miami, call 305-576-6213.
