Mums and daughters 'amazed' by Emunah's work in Israel

UK charity organises fact-finding mission

    British Emunah vice-chair Sharon Dewinter led a mother and daughter Israel tour taking in the charity's projects and places of general interest.

    The group comprised ten mothers, one grandmother, and 11 girls aged between ten and 12, including Mrs Dewinter’s daughter Liora, 11.

    Such was the impact that one of the participants, ten-year-old Raffaella Rubens, gave a talk on Emunah to pupils and staff at Highgate Junior School this week.

    “It is hard to comprehend the tragic reasons that bring children into Emunah’s care and we were very honest about that," Mrs Dewinter explained. "The young tour members showed maturity beyond their years and asked insightful questions.”

    On their first trip to Israel, Lauren Matlock and daughter Shelby, 11, said the experience had affected them “beyond belief". They had been "amazed by the phenomenal work Emunah does".

    Mrs Matlock was overcome with emotion on visiting the Kotel in Jerusalem. “I had waited 35 years to reach this very special place.” Back in the UK, Shelby, a Moriah Jewish Day School pupil, is planning a fun run to raise money for Emunah.

    Other participants included Devorah and Lili Albert; Zivit and Liat Ezekiel; Limor and Yael Goldberg; Shelley and Olivia Herman; Gail Lamb and Katie Hilburn; Lucy and Tehilla Rome; Jamie and Eden Rubin and Rochelle Selby and Ella Isaacson.
