On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, the Israel Tennis Centers Foundation is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to philanthropy and giving.

Israel Tennis Centers Foundation is dedicated to creating lasting peace in one of the most turbulent areas in the world. Our goal is to teach the children that participate at Israel Tennis Centers how to live successful lives. "Through the skills learned on the court, we teach our children in an environment of inclusiveness, unity, respect, diversity and caring," states Phil Silber, President of the Israel Tennis Centers Foundation. "As we believe, this will set them on the path to building lasting peace within their communities."

Performing Mitzvot, (good deeds) and Tzedakah (charitable giving) are central to the greater concept of Tikkun Olam, the idea that we bear responsibility not only for our own moral, spiritual, and material welfare, but also for the welfare of the world at-large! And so on #GivingTuesday, the Israel Tennis Centers Foundation offers the opportunity to fulfill each of these ideals and create a better world.

Since 1948 when the State of Israel was founded, Israel’s economic growth has been truly miraculous! But what many people do not know is that significant poverty also exists. In fact, 36% of Israeli children live in poverty. The Israel Tennis Centers provides programs and services that enable these children to overcome their circumstances and succeed.

The Israel Tennis Centers helps “create a better world” every day, and so the theme for ITC’s #GivingTuesday is “One Day – One Child”...When You Save a Life, You Save the Entire World! By participating in #GivingTuesday, you can “save lives”, too…and here’s how:
