Project of the Month

These programs allow talented underprivileged teenagers to fulfill their potential by providing them with a challenging program of enrichment and leadership training at the Ruppin Institute of Marine Science. Talented 7th graders from all backgrounds of Israeli society in the lower socio-economic levels are chosen - programs run for 2 years.


ESRA Shops

ESRA shops work on many levels. Everyone can donate their unwanted items in good condition for recycling and resale at our Second Hand Shops and at our Bookshops. Volunteers collect and sort the items at 5 centres in Raanana, Kfar Saba, Modiin and Binyamina (see details below) and goods and books are offered for sale at very reasonable prices. The general public, native Israelis, new immigrants and foreign workers, can buy pre-owned goods at cheap prices for their own use or for sending to their families abroad. Profits made in the shops are a most welcome supplement to our fundraising efforts to ensure the continuance of our Community Projects.
