OHEL a Guest at Hamptons Synagogue
Speakers provide advice and inspiration!Â
On the Shabbos of August 9, Shabbos Nachamu, OHEL Childrenâ€™s Home and Family Services was invited to the Hamptons Synagogue for a Shabbos of connection, growth, and friendship.
Hindie Klein, PsyD, OHELâ€™s Director of Clinical Projects, spoke to the congregants on Shabbos afternoon, about â€śConnecting with Family in the Age of Selfies, Twitter and Facebook. â€ś Over 150 shul members attended, and Dr. Klein provided strategies for building successful connections with loved ones.Â
Motzei Shabbos was filled with an inspiring evening kumsitz of 250 people, complete with a campfire sing-a-long with the Macabeats, and the Hampton synagogueâ€™s very own Cantor Izchak Haimov accompanying on the guitar.
OHEL prepared a lavish breakfast Sunday morning for the Shul congregants, at which renowned speaker Charlie Harary spoke to the enthralled crowd. He enumerated the amazing work that OHEL does, and inspired all those that attended.
Harvey and Gloria Kaylie, the founders of Camp Kaylie, were honored and moved by the Hampton synagogueâ€™s community support, of which they are esteemed members. $30,000 was raised for OHEL from the morning breakfast presentation.
