One hundred senior representatives from the Toronto Jewish community met with young alumni of the Jewish Agencys Project TEN  this week in Israel

The Canadians, part of UJA Federation of Greater Toronto Centennial Mission to the country, met with the volunteers at the Soda Stream visitors center, in Lehavim in southern Israel. There they heard about the project's objectives -  to enable young Jewish adults from all over the world, alongside young adults from Israel to volunteer together, aiding in the fields of education, health and agriculture in developing countries. 

The alumni, Shani Chayut, who came back to Israel after completing three months of volunteering in Uganda and Hodaya Brown, who spent three months in South Africa, told the mission members about the different ways that Project TEN volunteers helped the local communities in Africa with health education, renovation constructions in schools, and how they established profound relationships with the local community.

Soda Stream CEO Daniel Birenbaum, said supporting projects like TEN and sending Israelis and young Jewish adults from all over the world helps improve Israels image abroad. 

Its a special opportunity to hear about the giving and experience of these young girls who volunteered in developing countries, who come back more motivated than ever, mission leaders, Steven and Rosanne Ain, said after the visit. Their son, David, who also took part in the mission, mentioned how inspirational it is to hear about their giving and volunteering.
