New Seiden Project in Acre
83-year-old Norman and his wife, Barbara, who are from New Jersey, have contributed toward 16 projects over the last 32 years, which were funded through the Israel Education Fund. The announcement of the new tennis courts was made during a meeting held with all those active in the projects established throughout Israel with Seiden’s help – projects which have fondly become known as "Seiden’s projects."
The emotion-filled event in Acre was attended by all representatives of his projects throughout Israel. Other guests included local government representatives, representatives of women’s movements, and administrators of daycare centers and preschools.
After his visit in Acre, another special event was held with the project managers in Hof Hatmarim. The participants spoke about the projects, the changes they have been through, and the new towns that have developed in the Galilee. During the event, a number of musical segments from the conservatories of Acre and Emek Hama'ayanot – both of which were funded by Norman Seiden – were played, to the delight of all the participants.
Seiden was very moved by the meeting, during which he received gifts from the children he helps and cards expressing their heartfelt appreciation for all he has done for them.
In his address, Norman promised that the second, third and even fourth generations – his great-grandchildren – will continue to maintain the close bond between his family and the State of Israel, and lend support to its educational projects and other undertakings.
