Tikva provides a warm, compassionate home, essential social services and a quality education, while revitalising the growing Jewish community of Odessa. In addition, Tikva offers its graduates the opportunity for a brighter future through university education in Odessa or immigration to Israel, where Tikva continues its educational and support services.

Quote for Karen Bodenstein – Tikva Executive Director

“Given the recent events in the Ukraine, The past few months have been extremely difficult for the Tikva and its children. This Rosh Hashanah we are appealing to our donors to help us raise much needed funds to ensure their security and provide for their basic needs. The event was a huge success and monies raised will help relieve the financial strain Tikva is feeling at present.”
