My Dream Israel: Supporting Children in Need of a Safe Play Space

Charlie Goodman

Charlie Goodman

I am excited to be participating in the Dream Israel Teen Initiative and raising funds for the Sderot Indoor Recreation Center. The Sderot Indoor Recreation Center is a safe place for children in danger of missile attacks in Israel from the nearby Gaza Strip.

The recreation center is outfitted with a rock-climbing wall, soccer field, computer labs, dance studio and more so kids can be active, play with friends and be safe at the same time. The Sderot facility has been retrofitted with 300 tons of steel so it doubles as a play area and bomb shelter.

The money I help raise for the Sderot Indoor Recreation Center will go directly to the project and the up to 3,000 children and families served. If I meet my fundraising goal, JNF will provide me with a grant towards my upcoming Spring 2023 semester at Alexander Muss High School in Hod Hasharon, Israel.

Please consider supporting this important initiative and help me meet my fundraising goal. Thank you!

Hi! Thank you all so much, for helping me reach the halfway mark to earn a $7,500 scholarship to the Alexander Muss High School in Israel! I'm over halfway there to my $5,000 goal, and I'm so excited to have earned a $5,000 scholarship from what I've raised so far. Thank you all so much!


Hi! I'm so happy to have raised over 30% of the donations for the Sderot Indoor Recreation Center! Every donation helps so much, and puts me closer to achieving the $5,000 goal and earning my scholarship to Alexander Muss Highschool in Israel. Every donation is also very important for the Sderot Indoor Recreation Center, and the people of Sderot.


I'm very excited to have reached over $1,000 raised for the Sderot Indoor Recreation Center. I can't wait to get closer and closer to my goal! Thank you all!


Hi! I'm really excited to have received the first donation towards my fundraising goal for the Sderot Indoor Recreation Center in support for families and children who live near the Gaza Strip. Thank you, mom and dad!
