Beyt Tikkun Synagogue-Without-Walls members were inspired at our High Holiday services last year when Beyt Tikkun member Cecilia Wambach, a retiree, reported on her volunteer work with children refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos who had escaped from Syria and Afghanistan. Today, June 18, the S.F. Chronicle featured her work in an article depicting how she had organized others to come to Lesbos with her and provide teaching and emotional support to these young people, many of them suffering from the PTSD that led to or was caused by their loss of home and in many cases family as well.
Please read the story about her at https://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/article/East-Bay-retirees-volunteer-in-Greece-with-13001205.php
