Response to the Need

World Jewish Relief (WJR) is one of the most reliable partners of the Jewish community of Moldova during the last six years. The word WJR is already good known for many clients of Hesed and Jewish Family Service clients not only in Kishinev, but in Beltsy, Tiraspol and Rybnitsa as well.

WJR missions became a constant and exciting moment for the community organizations and programs participants. This time it was not exclusion. The group of WJR sponsors and staff came for intensive three days that included visit to Rybnitsa, home visits to needy Hesed and JFS clients, meetings with Hillel Students’ Club, Haverim, JCC youth club and participants of the project – Vocational Training for Vulnerable Women that is being run by KJJC Center of Training and Professional Development. On the last day two excursions – of the Jewish places of Kishinev and of the KJJC programs – took place.

During the visit to the Campus our guests got the general and detailed information about the KJJC organizations activities during the presentation and meeting with directors. After this they visited all the range of welfare and cultural programs active at the moment and learned about the history of the Bessarabia Jewry at the KJJC Museum.

“A wonderful visit – full of interest for us”, wrote Linda Rosenblatt – WJR Vice-Chair in KJJC Guest Book.
