In the spirit of what my father - Rabbi Reuven OHANA, Chief Rabbi of Marseilles and President of the Merkaz Halimoud - is doing to promote Jewish values, I wish to offer to students of the whole Provence area, a place to meet, to know or reinforce their Jewish identity, thanks to a team of motivated rabbis and teachers.
The Heritage Center organizes activities from Sunday to Friday. The Center is 450m² big, and is composed of a conference room, 2 rooms for studying, a Beth Hamidrash including a Kodesh library, a chol library with computers, a cafeteria for students and a lounge. So, during the day, students come to the center to work, eat, relax, learn and meet other young people.
Many activities are available on site : shiourim are held at noon, the evening and Sunday mornings, and a conference each Sunday night, fitness classes, broadcasting of football matches, community shabbatot...
Other activities are also available outside the center : many trips in France or international trips, dining out, community shabbatot in Paris or Strasbourg...
The Heritage projector is called Avraham OHANA. After studying for 8 years in yeshiva (in France and Israel), he returned to France in 2009 to help his father develop the project of Yeshiva Gedola Marseille. For 3 years, he participated in the management of this institution, and still gives shiourim to young Bachurim. In 2012, Rabbi Reuven OHANA launched the Heritage Youth Center of Marseilles project and Abraham left his position at Yeshiva to create and manage the center, to this day.
