Levonah Chapter - Modiin
Levonah Chapter, formed in 2010, is an English Speaking Chapter with approximately 110 women ranging in ages from 50-95.
We hold interesting monthly meetings with programs ranging from engaging speakers to an ice cream social. Our theme for this year is “Body and Soul”. We also have a Health Series that ranges from Breast Cancer Awareness to Eye Health. We have a Torah study group of about 20-25 people that meets weekly with a dynamic leader, Ronda Israel. Our Annual Yom HaShoah Program, which we partner with ESRA, was held in April with a very large turnout and many compliments.
We hold special events for our fundraising campaign. This year we held a concert with two pianists performing on one piano. It will become an Annual Event. Last year our big fundraiser was our 2nd Annual Auction and Bazaar. This will be held again on November 20, 2018 this year. We worked with the Nachama Chapter in Jerusalem on the Walk-A-Thon that was held in April 2018.
Frieda Odzer is chairperson of our Bikur Cholim committee that provides many services for those members who are in need in case of an illness or a loss. We also collect travel size personal care items for the Hadassah hospitals to distribute to patients.
Socially, members are meeting lovely people from all over the world and making new friends. We welcome new members!
