Story

At Kol Hanearim, everything is FTK—For The Kids. During the summer and throughout the school year, we work to change the lives of Israel’s children at risk. Our dedicated volunteers build lasting bonds with hundreds of children and instill within each of them the confidence they need to grow from vulnerable receivers into successful givers. Through summer camps, carnivals, shabbatons and more, all taking place at the EIGHT children's homes we were at this summer--we offer camaraderie and support in each child’s journey towards a brighter future.

This March, our Jerusalem Marathon team aims to take our mission a step further by busing in over 300 children at risk to run with us through the streets of Jerusalem, stride-for-stride. Once the race concludes, our kids will benefit from our “Fund a Passion” campaign. When a child has a hobby (such as guitar, dance, or drawing), he has something to be proud of, something productive to work on each day, and another reason to believe in his own self-worth. However, most at-risk children lack the basic resources to become fully invested in his or her particular interest. By funding music instructors, art teachers, and soccer/basketball coaches to come to children’s homes and run clinics, our children will be growing and smiling even when volunteers aren’t around.

With the help of last year’s marathon fundraising efforts, our children are currently participating in computer coding and mechanical engineering after-school sessions.

This year, our team will be running in memory of Alana Karp z'l– the events coordinator at Emunah of America. Alana cared deeply about the wellbeing of the children Kol HaNearim serves, and she was a passionate advocate of our cause.

When Alana passed unexpectedly, we lost a vibrant and committed champion of the kids. Our hearts are broken, but we can still do our part to continue in her ways.

With your partnership, we will honor Alana by turning an average children’s home into a beacon of optimism.

Welcome to the KH team!
