“Ve’ahavta didn’t just fill my employment gap, they helped me build the skills, tools and resilience I need to face any challenges that come my way.”
Levy experienced a long stretch of unemployment after having experienced a series of unfortunate events — loss, heartbreak and family health issues. One day, he came across a job posting for a work placement with Ve’ahavta’s Meal Box program. The candidate needed to have experienced employment barriers. It fit him perfectly. He started working one day a week preparing healthy meals for Ve’ahavta’s outreach van.
Today, Levy works part-time as the Volunteer Coordinator Assistant. He is confident that one day he will be able to work full-time. Once isolated from the Jewish community, he is glad to have reconnected through Ve’ahavta which shares his value of being inclusive of people of all faiths and backgrounds.
