When you have a dream and you have faith, sometimes there just happens to be someone who wants to help you fulfill this dream.
Thanks to the amazing couple Tiran and Pnina, this modern cake baking kitchen was established, with all the necessary electrical appliances and confectionery tools - and our dream was fulfilled.
Chen, our wonderful patisserie chef, dreamt this dream together with her husband Menachen: to teach the children here at Emunah Afula to learn a trade, and then start and run a business.
Thank you to all our sweet little workers and to everyone who has helped with this festive opening of “Sweet-Heart”

The Emunah Children’s Center in Afula is a unique home away from home for more than 150 of Israel’s most vulnerable and endangered children, placed in care by Child Protective Services.
Before coming to Emunah Afula many of our children have experienced a great deal of suffering, maltreatment and even physical and sexual abuse, often at the hands of the very people who children should be able to trust without hesitation, their own parents. Emunah Afula strives to be a safe haven, providing our children with a secure and nurturing environment in which to flourish and grow up without fear.
Unfortunately, long term government funding constraints have forced us to make a painful Solomonic choice year after year. Do we invest in fulfilling the emotional, educational, social and medical well being of our children, or do we invest in the upkeep of their living facilities? In a perfect world, we should be able to do both, but this world is far from being perfect.Today, our boys who live in the oldest building on the campus, 68 years old, appeal to you to invest in their quality of life. We ask you to support our efforts to refurbish their home sweet home and ensure that in addition to great care, they enjoy comfortable and respectable living conditions. Most kids take it for granted……why shouldn’t they?
All funds donated to this important project will be matched by a local Israeli foundation, packing “more bang for your buck!”
The total cost of this project is $500,000 and this campaign is to raise the final $250,000.
