Education and welfare projects

Education & Welfare Projects

ESRA, founded in 1979 as a non-profit, is Israel's largest English-speaking community, aiding the integration of olim while working toward equality in Israeli society. ESRA aims to help diminish educational and social gaps, especially in the socio-geographic periphery, focusing on education and excellence programs and enhancing personal and social skills in a safe and supportive environment. We also integrate English-speaking immigrants into these projects, helping them feel useful and contributing members of society, thereby serving our two significant aims.

Photography & Cinematography

Weekly Photography & Cinematography classes and activities for special occasions in an afterschool welfare center. Rishon Lezion


Children who attend afternoon centers often lack any enrichment programs. We assist in providing them with knowledge and activity in photography and cinematography, exposing them to a creative endeavor and thereby enriching their lives.



Arouse interest in the creative fields of photography and cinematography 
Enrichment by providing content they otherwise would not have encountered
Improve emotional well-being and release of stress through focusing on a social and creative activity
