Speaking on Business: Project H.E.A.R.T.
The Project H.E.A.R.T program has literally saved lives at one of our most painful stages.
This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
It takes conviction to move across the country from somewhere you feel you belong, to start over. Rabbi Zippel started his new beginning in 1992 in Utah. He was a recently ordained rabbi with Chabad Lubavitch and was sent to start the first Chabad here.
Rabbi Zippel was asked to support the outreach endeavor, bringing the Jewish population closer to their faith with increased representation in Utah. In a short period of time, Rabbi Zippel was asked to help a family with their troubled teen, who was in a treatment center and the rest is history.
The Rabbi identified a calling to inspire and support Jewish teens facing life’s challenges. He formed his non-profit Project H.E.A.R.T., which stands for Hebrew Education for At-Risk Teens. Rabbi Zippel believes we all make mistakes, and he also believes in Teshuva, which in the Jewish religion means “to return”, or rectify mistakes.
The Project H.E.A.R.T program has literally saved lives at one of our most painful stages of human development. Rabbi Zippel travels throughout Utah treatment centers to meet with these kids, who are looking for their inherent meaning and purpose. Utah has some of the best treatment centers in the U.S., because our laws allow parents to place kids without their consent.
