Visits with local Jewish Community

Even brief visits have been extremely moving. That is the enthusiastic Simon standing. We are with students at a Jewish kindergarten welcoming Shabbat. Their singing welcome brought tears to my eyes.
We also split into smaller groups for home visits and gift giving to families and elders who receive assistance from the American Fund for Jews in Lithuania and Latvia. It is a true credit to the work of the organization that we were received with such great warmth and open hearts everywhere we visited.
