Yechiel Marcus of the Jaffa Institute in Israel was the guest speaker at the Rotary Club of Great Neck’s weekly meeting. The Jaffa Institute, established in 1982, serves children growing up in families and neighborhoods where poverty, drugs and violence are a daily challenge. Using a holistic approach in its 12 locations, mostly in Jaffa and south Tel Aviv, the Jaffa Institute provides afternoon enrichment programs and several residential settings for children who have been removed from their homes by the courts. The institute’s goal is to help the children break out of a multigenerational cycle of poverty and become
productive members of society.
The Rotary Club of Great Neck invites residents and businesspeople to visit its meetings for social and business networking. In alignment with the club’s motto, “They Profit Most Who Serves Best,” the community is welcome to discover how meaningful and satisfying it is to give back to the community while networking through the Rotary Club of Great Neck.
On the second Wednesday of each month, dinner events are held at local Great Neck restaurants, and on all other Wednesdays, the group gathers for breakfast at 8 a.m. in the boardroom of TD Bank at 2 Great Neck Rd.
