Project Ezrah Launches Young Leadership Council

(Courtesy of Project Ezrah) On August 11, Project Ezrah hosted its inaugural Young Leadership Council event. The Young Leadership Council (YLC) focuses on involving members of the community who might not be as familiar with the organization and the work that it does.

Close to 200 people gathered at Keter Torah for a night of socializing and education. The room was decorated with posters that gave important facts about Project Ezrah, such as:

Did you know almost half of Project Ezrah clients are single mothers?

Did you know that Project Ezrah provides varying levels of support to fit an individual’s needs?

Did you know that Project Ezrah educational programming is open to the entire community?

Did you know Project Ezrah has a full-time social worker on staff?

After a fantastic buffet, dinner participants joined together for the main event, an amazing show by the famous hypnotist Mr. Hypno. Everyone also had a chance to hear testimonials from Project Ezrah clients to get an intimate understanding of the impact Project Ezrah has on the community. These stories were made up of clients from all of Project Ezrah’s major programs (Spark, Boost, Partner and Employment Services, details of which can all be found on our new updated website Ezrah.org).

“We were overwhelmed with the positive feedback from our inaugural event. We are looking forward to having more events throughout the year,” said Dani Secemski, chair of the Young Leadership Council. Many people went away not only having a wonderful time out with old and new friends, but also gained greater knowledge about how Project Ezrah has services to help everyone in the community.

“Project Ezrah is such a central organization in Bergen County and really exemplifies what it means to be part of a community and look out for one another,” said Basya Teitelbaum, who chaired the event. “It’s imperative that the younger generation should be aware of and involved with the organization so that we can continue what Rabbi Stern and all those who started the organization had in mind and continue their great efforts.”

Project Ezrah’s Young Leadership Council is gearing up to launch new projects and events after the Yomim Tovim. If you are interested in participating or getting more information about the YLC feel free to reach out to [email protected].
