Whether your passion is:

-Connecting teens from Latin America to their Jewish roots.

-Providing financial aid/tzedaka/charity to families of limited resources who want their kids to have similar experiences than those of their peers.

-Letting teens who have never met holocaust survivors have an opportunity to meet  them and experience living history, and the strength of faith.

-Helping teens and families from beleaguered Venezuela currently facing dark times of  tyranny have a much needed reprieve. (more about venezuela's crisis here)

-Or Helping a small non for profit with limited resources continue to move mountains and open doors... Your donation to Or Haner has you covered.

Quick summary of 2017: We were about 94 people strong this past summer. 9 teens from Venezuela  (a country now in crisis) were able to attend (largely thanks to funding from the Associated)

Thanks to one sponsor, we were able to make a recruiting event in Costa Rica , this event attracted for first time in many years a nice size group from Costa Rica, this created a movement and now we have kids from Costa Rica showing interest to join us in the upcoming program. ( We would like to make similar event to other communities thus furthering our impact. )

Thanks, largely to the donations collected in last year's online campaign and others campaigns last year we were able to grant partial and full scholarships to many boys and girls from various communities in need of financial aid, many came without paying , others paid very small portions.  We need to reach our campaign goal in order to start making the efforts necessary. Yes it was a great year! But why do we need your help?
- Unfortunately we couldn't afford to bring even more kids from Venezuela who were very interested in joining. And although we granted much in scholarship funds, many more needed our help.
-Just like that recruiting event was a huge success, many other communities would benefit from such event, however we don't have funding for those.
-We have a hard time covering the cost of programs as it is. By reaching the goals of this campaign and a combination of other efforts we can make this coming year an even better one and continue to build on our success.Only Together we can open doors and make an impact. In summery 2017 was another great and meanigfull year for all of those who participated. thank you for your support.

"Almost ten years since Moishe's passing and it continues to give me and my children great joy when we visit camp every year and see it in full swing as it continues the legacy of my dear husband Z"L" Chaya Miriam Fuller

Please join us in support of Camp Or Haner. Thousands of youngsters have been beautifully affected through the positive Jewish experience of Camp Or Haner. We all have an obligation to keep Moshe’s legacy alive and vibrant Rabbi Sheftel Meir Neuberger, President Ner Israel Rabbinical College

Most of the people in my community are elders, and there are not many teens with whom I can hang out. Going to Baltimore this summer was an incredible experience. I was able to live with Jews from four different communities. For me, this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity…what I liked the most was Tisha B'Av because that day I felt truly a Jew, it was a day to think and understand my Jewish identity. Even more, embrace our Jewish heritage. Jose Rosenfeld , Camper from Monterrey

After 4 days, I really got connected with the group no matter from what country or even in the same country. I realized that people that might seem total strangers for me we all shared a common thing and that’s Judaism. The fact that I feel a total stranger like my brother really inspire me because it gave me strength in continue learning about my Judaism here in Mexico. Daniel Bettish, Camper from Mexico

Did you know? Last year's campaign had 39 supporters, so yes each donor counts, and your donation does make a difference.

MORE ABOUT OR HANER -SINCE 1986:

www.orhaner.org

It might look as a camp but, as you probably know,  we are not just camps, we create a life changing experience that accomplishes more than most schools can possibly accomplish in many years . We accomplish this by putting together fun,  community experiences, and learning.  Our programs have a profound impact on individuals, families and communities across the globe. Become a part of this tremendous endevour and help us keep the legacy of R' Moshe Fuller Z"L strong and vibrant.

Outside the United States there are various Hispanic Ashkenazy and
Sephardic Jewish communities such as the ones in Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Peru , Spain, and Venezuela.
Some of these communities do not have Jewish schools. Others, live very
traditional lives and do have private Hebrew schools, yet are very limited  by the size and resources in their communities we help them broaden their interactions with Judaism.

THE CURRENT SITUATION IN VENEZUELA has added a new component to our work, we have brought light and joy to teens that literally cant walk out freely on their own streets. For safety , these teens are confined to spending their time in a few buildings, and their parents are trying to provide them a normal Jewish upbringing on salaries averaging a merely $70 a month.

Since 1986 hundreds of teenagers from Latin America have experienced unique vacations emerged in Jewish heritage and practices at Or Haner camps in Baltimore, MD.  During their summers and winter vacations teenagers have made this experience a favorite way of spending their vacations.
Returning home from Camp, boys and girls bring back to their countries an
experience that stays imprinted upon them for the rest of their lives. They return with a strong feeling of happiness and a freshly renewed pride in their Jewish identities that will help them to navigate through the difficult and challenging decisions they may encounter in the course of their private and community lives.

Behind the scenes of this great movement, there was one person, the
founder of Or Haner; Moishe Fuller Z’L, Moshe a native of Mexico, was a young student at Ner Israel when he started the programs with the full support of Rabbi Naftali Neuberger Z’L and Ner Israel.

Although the young husband and father is no longer with us,
his dream lives on through the thousands of students he was mekarev, and the continuation of the organization that he established.

Thanks to Or Haner:
• Today many households in Latin America are exclusively kosher.
• There is a vibrant Kollel in Panama because of Or Haner. The late rabbai of the Panama comunity attributed the growth his community to Moshe Fuller's Z"L Or Haner.
• Many Torah classes and Shabattonim are constantly taking place in various communities.
• Many alumni have attributed their marriage within the faith to the sweet
flavor which was imprinted in them by their attendance to our programs many
years earlier.

• Many campers have moved on, not only to keeping shabbos but to also to
attending yeshivos.
• Many have built Torah homes of their own.

For hundres Or Haner has included their first: Shabbos, birkat hamazon, or their first mishnah. For many the first of many for others the one that they will forever treasure.

Today we invite you to also become a part of this great movement helping us in continuing to thrive. This is an opportunity to support a cause that is unique in many ways. Or Haner is a 501c3 organization, donations are tax deductible.
