SOMETIMES YOUR first impression about a place or a person leaves you with a lingering feeling about them. As I walk past the gift shop at Beit Issie Shapiro in Ra’anana, I think about the gift of life – the single most sacred thing in Judaism. Passing the gift shop and into the building I sense a light – a radiant light, the type that a young baby radiates in a crowded room of people.

I am magnetized and curious about how and why this place came into being. So I sit down with the founder, Naomi Stuchiner, and ask about her life and the organization she created.
