Jack Ormut's long journey in search of home Print E-mail

Jack Ormut lives in Hong Kong but calls Israel home. Behind beautifully kind blue eyes there is a story of survival, of loss, of love, of pride, of strength and the story of a journey in search of home.

Jack was born in Tuszyn, Poland in November of 1926.  He remembers much of his childhood and describes his home that once was.  His small shtetl had a population of about 8,500, one third of who were Jewish. The Jewish community, of Tuszyn, came together to celebrate weddings and bar mitzvahs. They were simple but warm and joyous occasions.  On Saturday evenings several families would join each other for Havdalah.  They shared a meal of potatoes, beer from a cog and herring.

 In April of 2001, I was a normal, healthy twenty-eight year old woman.  I was living in New York, had a fantastic husband, a great career…life was good.  Then, one morning, I felt a lump in my breast while I was showering.  I assumed it was nothing, but phoned my doctor just to be certain.  He said to me, “Sweetie, you are twenty-eight years old, you have nothing to worry about. 

Make an appointment for a sonogram and come see me in a few weeks”.

Jill Samelson's lessons from the heart Print E-mail

What started with the need to educate their own children will soon grow into a foundation designed to aid special needs children throughout Asia.

Jill and David Samelson, members of Hong Kong’s Jewish community, founded the Children’s Institute of Hong Kong (TCIHK) in 2005.  TCIHK is a non-profit school dedicated to providing quality education for students with special needs who currently are not capable of being mainstreamed.
