Letter from a Gala Bat Mitzvah 2013 attendee

Sheena,

It was so nice meeting you in person on such a happy and emotional day!

Sheena Levi, Director of Outreach, with Lana and her daughters (left) at the Gala. Bracha Runes, Director of the Home, stands far right.

I want to thank you and Bracha for giving us such a beautiful opportunity to celebrate the girls Bat Mitzva. It was so emotional for me and for Sarina to be there. We felt so connected to the girls. Sarina felt like they were all her sisters and I felt like they were all my daughters. Watching the video [made by the girls at the Home] for both times at the beginning and the end brought tears to my eyes. 

Driving back from Bat Mitzva we couldn’t stop talking about how well everything was organized and planned from the hall, tables arrangements, girls dresses and hairstyles. I can’t describe our joy for those girls. From the moment when we first found out about the girls we felt connected to them, but celebrating  their Bat Mitzva together brought us even closer to the girls.

Thank you again for giving us such a great opportunity of being part of girl’s lives.

Lana Hilowitz
