As the year 2019 approaches in but a few hours, we are so excited to receive the following email from Lilach Tzur Ben-Moshe, founder of Yotsrot, which uses vocational training, particularly as it relates to the fashion world, to help women leave prostitution and regain economic stability. Lilach, along with many others including our grantee, Rabbi Levi Lauer, founder of ATZUM, have worked tirelessly to end this scourge:
Happy new year to you and to your family! May it be wonderful!
Just a second before the new year enters, history was made – the Knesset passed the law prohibiting the purchase of sex, and referring budget for rehabilitation. I’m so proud to be part of the great group of women, activists, PMs and prostitution survivors who made it happen against all odds. I know that women will still be sold in prostitution but today Israel said with out a doubt that this is wrong, harmful and inhuman. So today I’m proud to be an Israeli.
Thank you for all of your support in this miracle. 2019 is a bit happier indeed.
We at the Good People Fund are proud of the support we have offered on behalf of our donors to make this law a reality. It was well past time!
