CAR­ING CAN­DLES

The Jerusalem Post - The Jerusalem Post Magazine - - LETTERS -

Max­ine Liptzen Dorot’s “Let there be light” was an ex­cel­lent re­port on the Youth of Light project (Oc­to­ber 18). Along with other English Speak­ers of Ashkelon friends, I have vol­un­teered many times at this place, which as­sists at-risk youth in so many ways to turn their lives around.

It is an honor to get to know some of these kids and work with such a ded­i­cated staff. We take kids and blobs of wax and cre­ate lovely can­dles and kids who be­come con­fi­dent adults.

I en­joyed learn­ing the fas­ci­nat­ing his­tory be­hind this great or­ga­ni­za­tion and the vi­sion we all share, which is to help turn lives around. Now, when I see can­dles in a shop, I know all the steps nec­es­sary to pro­duce a fin­ished prod­uct.
