Rappellers Take a Leap of Faith to Support Emunah of America

Some organizations hold silent auctions, but we’re not really the silent type! Emunah of America—Over the Edge is an opportunity to push the limits, experience an adventure of a lifetime and support Israel. This unique fundraising event taking place on Sunday, June 11, at the Berger Organization building in Newark, New Jersey. Over the Edge gives participants the opportunity to rappel down a 16-story building in a completely safe and controlled environment.

Emunah is an organization that provides children in Israel with a Jewish education, a safe and secure environment and opportunities for a productive future. Laurie Szenicer, chief development officer, explains, “It is certainly an over-the-top event, unlike other peer-to-peer fundraisers, no training is required. It is an event that is inclusive of all ages and abilities. How many people can say they rappelled over a building? Now you can do it and make a difference in the life of a child.”

Emunah of America’s goal is to raise the necessary funds to support our essential services for children and families at risk in Israel and to raise awareness about the amazing work we do. Donations raised from this event will be sent to Emunah in Israel, to ensure that young women will receive scholarships to the Florence and Joseph Appleman College of Art and Technology; and children and teens in one of our five residential programs, eight multipurpose day care centers and three emergency shelters will receive the necessary therapeutic treatments and care to ensure they have a chance at breaking the cycle of distress and becoming successful and independent adults.

We encourage and welcome teams. Dress in costumes. Over the Edge is a great team-building event for companies, schools and shuls. Challenge colleagues and fundraise to Toss the Boss, all in good fun. It’s a great day for the whole family. If you don’t want to rappel, we do have a “chicken” category—with a donation, you will receive a chicken hat. There will be entertainment for kids, music and kosher BBQ.
