Give Israeli Deaf youth the opportunity to connect with each other and experience Hanukkah for the first time in Jerusalem!

Most of the Deaf and hearing impaired youth we work with have never had the opportunity to experience a proper Hanukkah with menorah lighting. For many, their first Hanukkah experience is through the events and activities we organize around the country. With your help, this year our various branches across Israel will be converging together in Jerusalem to celebrate this special holiday.

Who are we?

International Young Israeli Movement (IYIM) is one of the loudest voices in Israel with the mission of bringing Jewish Heritage Programming to Deaf youth! Via our central Judaic Heritage Program for the Deaf, we focus on enriching programming to empower participants to strengthen their Jewish identity, personal achievement goals, family unit and contribution to Israeli society and the Jewish Nation. We provide programming, events, scholarships, and mentors for Deaf youth throughout Israel. IYIM will be co-sponsoring the Hanukkah programming with Shema, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing services for Deaf and hard of hearing children.

Here’s the plan…

This Hanukkah, we want the candles shining brighter than ever for the Deaf and hard of hearing by creating a Hanukkah celebration these youth will never forget!

We are going to host the most incredible Hanukkah fair in Jerusalem that will have these kids counting down the days till next year’s Hanukkah celebrations!

Our awesome activities include:

  • Create-your-own menorah and dreidels
  • Escape rooms
  • Watching a play about the Maccabees and the Greeks
  • Eating all the delicious Hannukah food (sufganiyot for days!)
  • A communal lighting ceremony to end the night with all the youth gathered together to recite the blessings and sing together in harmony

Your Impact

Your support of our program is a Hanukkah gift that keeps on giving. The proceeds from this campaign will go towards our Moadonim (Deaf youth centers) to supply them with activities, food, and trip expenses. In addition, our program has benefits that extend beyond the Hanukkah celebrations these kids will enjoy this year.

It also…

  • Creates unique opportunities for these Deaf youth to meet other youths just like them from all over the country and build a network of friends.
  • Helps these kids build confidence in themselves and in their Jewish identity.
  • Encourages leadership and community building as these kids use social media and other digital tools like WhatsApp groups to organize meetups.
  • Empowers the older graduates of our program to become mentors for the younger Deaf youth.
  • Enables the creation of Deaf and hearing impaired communities for many years to come.

Campaign by
International Young Israel Movement - Israel Region

The International Young Israel Movement (IYIM) focuses on establishing deeper connections to Jewish values and the Land of Israel. This is achieved via enriching programming to empower our participants to strengthen their Jewish identity, personal achievement goals, family unit and contribution to Israeli society and the Jewish Nation. Our efforts reach populations in Israel across the socioeconomic and ethnic spectrum, with a focus on weaker population groups and communities on the social periphery. These efforts are carried out in the spirit of love and respect for one’s fellow Jew; love of one’s Land and country; and respect for Jewish tradition and acknowledgment of Jewish history.
