Moshe Lefkowitz General Director

es un educador de larga trayectoria, cuyos ancestros se hallan entre los fundadores de la moderna Comunidad Judía de Safed (Tzfat). El compromiso de Moshe con los necesitados – sumado a su enorme energía y habilidades organizacionales – resultó en la construcción y desarrollo de la infraestructura de Meir Panim.
Bajo su liderazgo, la organización creció y llegó a alimentar y cuidar miles de hombres, mujeres y niños. Su experiencia y amplia visión lo han convencido de que un elemento fundamental para lograr el éxito profundo y duradero radica en concentrarse en el bienestar de la familia como unidad. Sus programas para Afikim, meticulosamente diseñados, son una organización bien estructurada que apunta a romper con el círculo vicioso de la pobreza y a enriquecer el alma de la nación judía.
