Krembo Wings

 

Krembo Wings is the only inclusive youth movement for children and young people in Israel with severe special needs. The main purpose of Krembo Wings is to enable every child living with any type of motor, cognitive or sensory disability to take part in enjoyable social interactions between one another and their able-bodied peers, letting them become part of community life. Branch activities include games, arts and crafts, music, and more. Sessions allow members to expand their social circles and develop self-confidence. Activities also provide respite for the parents of members with special needs.

This charity is based in London and has four members of staff and 40 volunteers. They provide community mediation for neighbours who are in dispute with one another.  Also workplace mediation for those having difficulties at work and family mediation for couples needing to discuss property, finances or arrangements around children.  They also provide a restorative Justice service where they help around 1,200 children and young people from 7 to 21 years old participate in Krembo Wings activities nationwide. Krembo Wings runs clubs in nine Negev towns and cities.  Uniqueness lies in the fact that the leaders of the youth movement’s activities are not trained caregivers, but 14 to 18-year-old Israeli teenagers (youth counsellors) who have taken part in intensive training to learn how to work well with the members. The organisation provides a comprehensive training programme for counsellors on subjects like guidance, special needs and team building.

Claudia Potter  was Bat Mitzvah in the synagogue on Saturday 9th June 2018.

She was supported by her mother Katia Di Dominica who is from Italy.

Claudia took much of the service and read from the Torah beautifully.

We were also treated to a translation of the Torah in Italian.
