Art to Help New Organization for Jews with Special-Needs and To Commemorate the Seidenfeld Children, z”l

IMG_0892At the end of May, the artwork of Brocha Teichman and the vision of Philyss Seidenfeld for a new non-profit called Anan Kvodo converged in Teaneck when Suzanne and Avi Stokar opened their home to celebrate a “Night of Beauty.” The event showcased Ms. Teichman’s paintings and raised awareness of Anan Kvodo, a new organization that seeks to provide work and living opportunities in a farm-like setting for Jews with special-needs.

“It takes a village to create a village,” said Mrs. Seidenfeld, who is seeking to partner with a larger organization to actuate the new organization’s plan.

The type of village she envisions does not yet exist in the US, but Ms. Seidenfeld is hoping that will soon change. For more information, visit Anan Kvodo on Facebook or contact Ms. Seidenfeld at philyss@gmail.com.

Ms. Seidenfeld said her efforts are intended to leave a legacy for her four deceased children, ages 4-15, who died in a tragic fire in Teaneck in 2005.
