Welcome to CHW Montreal
CHW Montreal President, Sheila Nemtin Levine
Did you know that CHW is 99 years old? Wow, what an accomplishment, and we have a lot to show for it! There is a huge need for social programs in Israel, and this is where CHW comes in. We help the people of Israel and new immigrants to the country better their lives and give them a chance for a brighter future. We accomplish this through our support of two women’s shelters and a hotline, two hospitals, two vocational schools, two youth villages, six daycare centres and a Bar/Bat Mitzvah program. In Canada we are affiliated with LOVE Quebec and Canadian Young Judea summer camps. We also volunteer locally with Mada and Le Café. We are truly committed.
Now you know what we do. What’s even more important for me is why
we do it.
Recently, I was asked about the biggest challenge facing the Montreal Centre of CHW. Without a doubt, our biggest challenge is engagement: to get people to identify with our mission, to come out and support our events and to give to annual campaign.
We cannot imagine our lives without the State of Israel. Without the support of the Jews in the Diaspora, Israel would not be able to survive. This is why your support is so important. For example, the CHW Na’aleh program provides a safe haven for French speaking Jews seeking to escape anti-Semitism and start a new life. For the past 67 years, Israel has been there for Jews in need. And just as Israel is there for us, it is our obligation to ensure that it continues to thrive. It is our insurance policy.
Despite its challenges, Israel has been a leader in technological innovation with inventions and discoveries that have changed the world. For example, Israel is on the cutting edge in medicine and employs advanced techniques at the CHW Assaf Harofeh Medical Center and Hadassah Hospital. Israel’s contributions are too many to list but they touch on many different industries, ranging from agriculture, where it is a worldwide pioneer in smart drip and microirrigation, supplying much of the world with fruits and vegetables, to developing most of the processor chips for personal computers, desktops, laptops and notebooks used throughout the world.
CHW now has something for everyone. We have an array of fun and interesting programs in our lineup this year for men and women of all ages to enjoy. Spread the word and bring your spouse, friends, children and parents. Come out and enjoy what CHW has to offer and at the same time show your solidarity with CHW and Israel. With your support we can truly make a difference!
