At-risk Israeli Youth Find Success Through Chocolate
At-risk youth in Israel are gaining important social skills, self-confidence and career development opportunities, thanks to your donation to the Annual Federation/UJA Campaign. Through Shades of Sweet, a program run by Federation’s overseas partner, The Jewish Agency for Israel, young adults in Israel work as chocolatiers in two Pardes Channa-Karkur chocolate shops, developing an interest, and possibly even a career, in the confectionary world. The chocolate is sold to hotels and other businesses, providing a complete understanding of commerce. Shades of Sweet is supported by The Jewish Agency’s Loan Fund, which provided more than 204 businesses with more than $12 million last year.
