Tel Aviv artist Aviva Na'aman, who is donating her paintings and sculptures to a Haifa exhibition, and art lovers who buy her prestigious work will know that their generosity will benefit the Women-and-Children-at-Risk Project of Hadassah-Israel.

The exhibition, organized by the Haifa Oren Chapter at the G.O. Art Gallery at 93b Sderot Hanassai, Haifa, (next to the Tikotin Japanese Museum) began yesterday (Thursday, October 11) and continues free of charge for all those who wish to admire Na'aman's art from October 13th until October 31.

President Lee Freeman reports that the Haifa Oren Chapter of Hadassah-Israel is one of the veteran English-speaking groups, but is currently striving to become an integrated English and Hebrew-speaking chapter with much of the volunteering involving Hebrew-speaking women.

There are already many members volunteering in the after-school enrichment programs for children at risk in the Hadar and Nesher districts.

In conjunction with the Haifa Center for Victims of Domestic Violence, several Haifa members have taken the training course to participate in the Hadassah-Israel Coffee and Conversation Program, which serves to empower women at risk throughout the country.

Quoting Henrietta Szold, the founder of World Hadassah: "Dream great dreams and take the practical steps to make them a reality."

Freeman explained that Hadassah-Israel, which was founded in 1983, looks for volunteers who can actively improve the quality of life for those most vulnerable in Israel society.

The artist is donating her entire income from this exhibition to this project and the G.O. Gallery owners are providing without charge the use of their attractive venue for its duration.

The event has received the blessing of Ofra Strauss, Chairperson of the Strauss Group.
