VIDEO: Shwekey makes a dream trip a reality for 4 boys

by T.H. News traveled quite fast that Eli was dreaming to go to Eretz Yisroel for his upcoming Bar Mitzvah. Eli’s family and extended family knew it meant so much to him so they tried to pull the funds together, but they were unsuccessful and put the idea away to rest.

But that’s wasn’t the end of it.

Eli is part of The Special Children’s Center family, a family with an overabundance of love, selfless staff and volunteers. Not by coincidence, a dear Center friend called Yaakov Shwekey to offer an unforgettable trip to four boys.

Before you knew it, through the generous hands of many dear Center friends, the trip was arranged, and it was perfect timing to join Yaakov Shwekey’s tour of ‘50 Years Yerushalayim’.

Stepping foot into the holy land wasn’t something they ever thought was going to be a reality.
