Safe and secure at Shutaf this summer

I Belong at Shutaf this Summer.

Dear Shutaf Friends,

It’s a stressful and sleepless summer in Jerusalem. During a period of rocket fire, rioting and escalating violence, we’re still busy planning for our 3-week August summer camp. For families and children, especially those who have disabilities, it’s an especially stressful time. Read Shutaf co-founder, Miriam Avraham’s blog post about her family’s experiences here.

We’re delighted to offer a safe, secure and fun program, one that’s also inclusive and accepting. It’s especially important this summer. Donate now to our Camp Scholarship Fund. Thank you!

Shutaf families are glad that camp is starting soon.

100_4777-sept2013Nadav, one of our younger participants, feels safe at Shutaf. This summer has been especially hard for his mom, Sharon, whose tour guide job means time away from the family. Rockets and the security situation make that extra tough.

Sharon feels good about choosing Shutaf, “I know that Nadav will have three amazing, stable and fun weeks,” adding that “Shutaf is the first place I’ve ever sent him where I don’t have to ask for exceptions…they just ‘get’ him.”

Camp enrollment is maxed out at close to 100 children and teens, ages 6-21, with and without disabilities. We’ve offered more spaces to more participants this year – it’s been challenging financially. We’re glad to do our part in Jerusalem.

We need your help this summer, more than ever before.
With your help, we can ensure every child’s safety, security and success at Shutaf.
With your help, we can ease parental stress, offering respite to more families.

With our deepest thanks,

Beth Steinberg and Miriam Avraham, Founders, Shutaf
Rena Magun, Board Chair, Shutaf
