Women’s International Zionist Organization (WIZO) announced today that it received a $1 million gift from the Los Angeles-based Younes and Soraya Nazarian Family Foundation to open a new state-of-the-art day care center in Tel Aviv.

The facility, which was dedicated last week in Tel Aviv, is named the Younes and Soraya Nazarian Day Care and Early Childhood Education Center. The ceremony was attended by Soraya Nazarian and her daughter Dr. Sharon Nazarian, WIZO President Esther Mor and Chairperson Anita Friedman among dozens of others.

“Research has shown that the investment in children between birth and five years old is critical, and that if you start that young, the rest of their lives will be a path to success,” said Dr. Sharon Nazarian in her remarks at the ceremony. “This facility, and the staff and teachers who are so loving, are the insurance policy of the future of the State of Israel.”

Anita Friedman, WIZO Chairperson, added: “The partnership between the Nazarian family and WIZO, born of a love for Israel, its children, and a deep concern for its future, has given birth to this magnificent act of generosity, in support of this new center, which is all about our love for Israel, its children, and its future.”

WIZO operates 183 day care centers throughout Israel, caring for 14,000 children ages 3 months to 3 years. The new Nazarian Center will have four classes, with a total of more than 100 children.
