Turning Dreams into Reality’

British Friends of Shuvu hosted its first fundraising Gala Dinner at the London Marriott Grosvenor Square, on Sunday 18th January 2015.  Over 350 men and women from across the London community came together to celebrate the incredible achievements of Shuvu and to support Shuvu’s ambitious growth plans for the future.  The guests were joined by participants from Manchester, the United States, Denmark and Israel.

The event was an opportunity to discover more about Shuvu’s network of 69 kindergartens, elementary and high schools throughout Israel.  The guests learnt about how Shuvu currently offers over 6,000 students from all backgrounds an outstanding education, equipping them with the skills and knowledge to become independent, successful and productive members of Israeli society.  Shuvu’s students come primarily from underprivileged, immigrant families, primarily from the former Soviet Union but now also from France and the US.  Shuvu provides a secular education at the highest level combined with education in strong Jewish values.  Although Shuvu is an intrinsic part of the Israeli state school system and receives a significant proportion of its funding from the Government, Shuvu schools provide so much more in the form of afternoon schooling, hot lunches, busses to school and a support network to the family of each pupil.  The extra-curricular activities and Shuvu’s extensive outreach programs, Jewish studies staff and shabbatons require significant independent funding.  The Gala Dinner was held to raise funds to enable this vital work to continue and expand.

The theme for the evening, generously hosted by Philip & Suzy Goldberg together with Nechemya & Ruchi Sheinfeld, was ‘Turning Dreams into Reality’.
