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.
