TBI -.Discover Children of Israel

Introducing 
TAGLIT BENE ISRAEL
( *A non profit organization run by sponsors and volunteers)

Dear Bene Israel Jewish Congregation,
I want to announce the creation of a new community group TAGLIT BENE ISRAEL (Discovery Bene Israel).  I am seeking your support to be part of this group in any role you can.

Group Name: TAGLIT BENE ISRAEL

Mission Statement:
Unite the remaining Bene Israel folks in a fabric to connect the youth with their mentors in the Bene Israel community. The bigger agenda being to help the Bene Israel community understand their Bene Israel roots, traditions, customs. Help Bene Israel to thrive and provide support and advice in all matters of life, including education, religion, customs, traditions, origins, matrimony, etc., despite the vast separation of distance between us all.

We will have 3 subgroups of dedicated serious  people. PLEASE PICK ONE OR MORE CATEGORY FOR YOURSELF. I commit to #1 and #3.

#1 SPONSORS (no age limit) : Folks who can sponsor at least one youth per year to visit either India, Canada, Israel, USA, or any other place where a mentor and his family resides. They can chose youth delegating on cost of trip. (Estimate: If somebody can pay for cost of 1 youth air fare, BOM-JFK,  (approximately $1500) then they can be a sponsor. )

#2 MENTORS (Age 26+) : Folks with families who will host the youth and be responsible for the educational and local travel, living, etc.  aspect of the youth when in their supervision.

#3 YOUTH (Age 16-25) : Young minds who are of Bene Israel decent at least from one parent, preferably from financially struggling family, who can get at least 3 other observant Jews to vouch for their following the Jewish faith or having  honest intentions of doing so.
(Please provide correction or suggestions to this grouping.)

#4 VOLUNTEER  (no age limit) :  Anybody who wishes to provide services in any capacity to promote the cause and help the community.

#5 CONSULTANT (by invitation only) : A honorary friend of Jewish or non Jewish origin who can be trusted to help the cause of promoting the TBI agenda.

INTRODUCTION LETTER:
Hope you are doing well. I wanted to send you this idea with the details  of my proposal.
I propose today the creation of a non profit organization "TAGLIT BENE ISRAEL"  (originally seeded as "Virtual Bene Israel Family"). This will be a self funded distributed effort by people from the Bene Israel community.

The agenda is to tie the remaining Bene Israel in a fabric to connect the youth with their mentors in the Bene Israel community. The bigger agenda is to help the Bene Israel community understand their Bene Israel roots, traditions, customs. Help Bene Israel to thrive and provide support and advice in all matters of life, including education, religion, customs, traditions, origins, matrimony, etc., despite the vast separation of distance between us all.

I will create a Facebook group TAGLIT BENE ISRAEL and start inviting our members to join. 
I personally will be a sponsor for one YOUTH member from that group to visit USA and learn from one of our Bene Israel MENTOR and have a good time as a tourist in general in the USA. We will will need to sign up more sponsors and mentors to do so, to enable multiple youth to visit either USA or Israel simultaneously. It will be preferable to find kids who would otherwise never get this opportunity to get this experience.

I think it is a novel idea. Let's hope we can get  it to work with support of more motivated youth and elders of our Bene Israel community.

If you have other suggestion or ideas how to do this  differently, then please let me know.
Thanks to one dear Bene Israel youth who have inspired me and given me a NEW mission in life.

Your thoughts please and Participation is NEEDED and WELCOME. Please tell me what sub-groups you can be part of. Thank you.

Regards,

MESSAGES -----------------------------------------

Commitment is a hard thing to make if we are afraid we will not be able to keep it. But it is also something that will boost your self confidence that we have a mission in life and it will help a greater good way past our own life.

The TAGLIT BENE ISRAEL (TBI) Facebook group is for all Bene Israel who meet its simple guidelines and want to support the noble cause. I will always support the original Bene Israel group so we can be part of BOTH as long as we remain UNITED.

Please join in any role you see yourself fit or email me to make suggestions, ask questions, make a commitment in any role in this noble endevour of ours. Tell me if you can be a #1-SPONOR , #2-MENTOR, #3-YOUTH or/and #4-VOLUNTEER. My email is sammybenjamin@gmail.com
