We are a group of enthusiastic women in North Broward and South Palm Beach who have found a bond of sisterhood by joining forces to lend a vital hand in the operating of hundreds of education and welfare projects and services.

We are three groups of young leaders who have taken it upon ourselves to have an early start to a charitable way of life! Many of us have participated in the WIZO Community Bat Mitzvah and now we are getting together to create fun and exciting events that will benefit the children in Israel. 

We have generous hearts and vivacious spirits and we are looking forward to the amazing events we will create and the positivism and generosity we will inspire in our peers.

SIMCHA

Simcha is full of enthusiasm and dynamism. We are a group of women in their 30s and early 40s that live and meet in the Broward area and are always ready to work for Eretz Israel.
