A new ESRA branch has recently been formed in Givatayim. Invitations were sent out to ESRA members and other English speakers in the community. There was a fantastic response from 28 people. The meeting was held in a private home and the room was buzzing with enthusiasm and ideas. A committee was formed and a second meeting took place on January 7, 2014.

The committee is looking forward to organizing some interesting events. Quite a number of people were interested in volunteering with our Befrienders and English tutoring programs.

Anyone interested in joining the committee or sending ideas should contact the chairperson Honey Stollman 077 751 3412 or Glenis Bertfield 054 773 4392.

Glenis Bertfield is the ESRA Central Branch Coordinator.
