Chicks With Sticks Update  -- August 7

About the Chicks With Sticks Program


This project to knit wool hats for Israeli soldiers has gone worldwide.  On behalf of OJOTC, Peggy Gurock (left) delivered a shipment of about 30 hats this summer to Chicks With Sticks founder Channah Koppel this summer in Efrat.  It was the fourth shipment that OJOTC had sent to Channah since we became involved in the Chesed Project several months ago. Channah reported that a total of more than 3,000 hats were distributed to soldiers this past winter.  The hats came from knitters all over the world.  She is hoping that by this coming winter, she will have more than 4,000 more hats to distribute.

If you want to get involved, here is a link to an article from Arutz7 about the project. It also contains the pattern to knit the hats. For more information, e-mail us at HatsForSoldiers@ojotc.org

When you are finished, we will ship them to Israel and you will have the satisfaction of sharing in this mitzvah of helping an IDF soldier who is protecting our State of Israel.


OJOTC Received this e-mail from the New York Office of Tehilla, an organization devoted to religious Aliyah.  If you are interested, let them know and let us also know so we can spread the information to other OJOTC members.


We have Ilene Bloch Levy and Ronda Israel, the expert management team of
Tehilla Kadima in Israel, that are ready to help you guys set up an
Occupational Therapist geared pilot trip-- just email back if you are

Would you guys like to be set up with English speaking occupational
therapists in Israel?

Please reply when you can, and let us know how we could help :-)

Informed Olim Make Aliyah Better!
