GIVING BACK

Since Orna and Isaac Levy founded Yvel in 1986, the spirit of “giving back” has been at the heart of the company. Isaac’s challenging childhood experience as a young new immigrant inspired the Levys to seek ways to help other newcomers succeed in building new lives. The couple is proud that today over 90% of Yvel’s more than 100 employees are immigrants hailing from 23 countries.

In 2010, the Levys furthered their commitment to the immigrant population, in particular to the vulnerable Ethiopian community. They established the philanthropic Megemeria School of Jewelry & Art to provide professional training and employment opportunities to Ethiopian immigrants to facilitate their integration into society as proud and contributing citizens.

Meaning “Genesis” in Amharic (the native language of Ethiopia), Megemeria offers its students the opportunity for a bright new beginning in life.
