Consul General Hillel Newman, on behalf of the Consulate General of Israel to the Pacific Southwest, inaugurated a computer hub at the Ministerios Betesda church in the city of Santa Ana this past Sunday. In attendance was Congressman Lou Correa who spoke about how technology is so vital to the community he serves and the importance of education for success. He also emphasized “We all are one community. Nobody in society does it on their own. All of us need a hand to succeed.”

Pastor Ronald Vives and Youth Pastor Ricardo Vives of Ministerios Betesda, graciously hosted the event and moderated the program.  Anaheim City Council Member Stephen Faessel and Lisbeth Rosales, aide of Santa Ana City Councilmember Thai Viet Phan, both delivered remarks and presented certificates in praise and recognition of Israel.

Everyone joined the ribbon cutting ceremony, which also included philanthropist Liz Hirsch Naftali who was instrumental in supporting the initiative.

In his remarks, Consul General Newman noted “Our presence here in this ceremony represents Israel’s foundational belief of highlighting the significance of sharing technology and innovation to the world. Israel is one of the leading nations in innovation and technology. We understand more than most that brainpower is a nation’s most valuable asset. I know our communities share a passion for education and we hope together this hub will provide resources and tools to those who need it.”

This hub is part of an outreach effort to communities on behalf of the Consulate which also includes murals with messages of hope and support, among other initiatives.
