Jewish billionaire and founder of the WeWork network Adam Neumann dedicated a new center for CTeen in Eretz Yisroel, continuing his long history of supporting CTeen in the Holy Land.
Two new CTeen centers were inaugurated in Eretz Yisroel this past Thursday night, adding to the growing network of centers across the country.
The first center, CTeen of Migdal Haemek, was a building that had been given to the organization by the local municipality and totally renovated to meet their needs. The renovation, which transformed the building into a splendid center, was sponsored by Jewish billionaire Adam Neumann, founder of the WeWork network, a strong supporter and friend of CTeen in Eretz Yisroel.
Joining the dedication were CTeen shliach to Migdal Haemek, Rabbi Shlomo Chaim Amos, Migdal Haemek shliach Rabbi Eliezer Parsia, and CTeen shluchim from across Eretz Yisroel, led by Rabbi Moshe Shilat, director of CTeen Eretz Yisroel, and Rabbi Mendy Kanievsky, deputy director of CTeen Eretz Yisroel.
Honored with installing the mezuzos were Rabbi Yitzchak Goldberg, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Chabad Migdal Haemek and a member of rabbinical board of CTeen Eretz Yisroel, Rabbi Yisroel Yosef HaCohen Hendel – rov of the Chabad community in Migdal Haemek and a member of the Beis Din Rabbonei Chabad, and Rabbi Akiva Goldschmid, Rosh Yeshiva of the Migdal Haemek Yeshiva Ketana.
From Migdal Haemek, the shluchim all traveled to Teveriah, to inaugurate another new and stunning wing in the CTeen center led by shliach Rabbi Mendy Turkov. The new wing will now allow the center to accommodate the many boys who come to the place every day.
In addition to the new wing, a magnificent garden and a unique environmental development were built for the center.
The shluchim farbrenged in the new wing for many hours, continuing until late at night, before heading back to their respective locations to continue with their mission to reach every youth in Eretz Yisroel.
