The Jewish community of Khmelnytskyi, Ukraine, has announced the establishment of a new modern Children’s Development Center to open at the beginning of the upcoming academic year. It will serve the city and surrounding region’s Jewish community. Currently, renovations are taking place to accommodate the new center.
“Our community has grown, thank G-d, and the need for suitable educational institutions and services has become urgent,” says the city’s Chief Rabbi Yossi Teitelbaum. “The new center will be open to the entire community, including those in need, and will ensure that every Jewish child can grow up healthy with all the necessary tools and skills to become independent and successful.”
The new center, supported by FJC’s ‘Or Avner’ Jewish educational network across the FSU, will combine personal treatment, along with group therapy sessions and a wide variety of educational projects and initiatives for children and teenagers of all ages.
Extra attention will be paid to empowering and enhancing Jewish values and knowledge among the participants and to serving the special needs of toddlers and children of day-care age from the city and surrounding region.
