Exclusive interview with Bracha Runes, Programs Director by Chava Yelloz, editor, Inside Our Home
It's hard to believe that only 3 months ago, I stood
with Bracha Runes in a construction zone filled with piles of tiles, tubes of
grout, newly whitewashed walls, still exposed electric wires and plenty of
chalky dust. Brushing myself off after the visit, I wondered how long would it
be until these 10 new rooms could be functional. Bracha assured me it would not
take long before each area would be enjoyed by the girls who so much need this
And lo and behold, less than 90 days later, for the
most part, the construction site is totally completed. Tiles are in place,
walls are painted, switch plates are operating – lights on, now ACTION!
The Rubin-Zeffren Children's Home is proud to share
with you, our dear donors, the designer's model for activity/play rooms, a card
catalogued library, a computer lab, a music room, an aerobics facility, gym
room, and boxing-bag room – a total of 9 new areas.
We will keep our friends posted with opportunities
available for dedication of these state-of-the -art rooms that will enhance the
ives of our dear girls through physical activities, music/arts and culture,
reading and computer science.
