With Intention

Our courses provide the required Hebrew language and cantillation, and Jewish History instruction for Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation to qualified and motivated students!

 

Twenty per cent of funds received are sent directly to
Estranged People-ESCO,  helping the Jewish people of Ethiopia.

 

There are two things that set this program apart from other similar courses:

1. The founding INTENTION to fund the non profit, Estranged People-ESCO, in their goal to transform the lives of the impoverished Jewish communities in Ethiopia.

 

Pictured here are some of the many widows and fatherless
that Estranged People-ESCO has helped over the years .

2. Biweekly or daily (depending on package chosen) accountability to learn required material

 

Pictured here are widows learning how to start a small
buisness to be able to support themselves and their children.
