We wish to thank G-d for sending us his wonderful agents at the Ezer Mizion Nativ Mental Health Family Counseling Center and for enabling us to benefit from their assistance.
Without going into details, we will just , say that our family was in serious distress and at our wit’s end trying to cope with a problem whose significance we did not understand.
Thanks to the efficient help of the people at the Center, the tragedy that could have befallen our family, G-d forbid, was prevented.
For the benefit of the public, the Center’s phone number is

I wanted to share with you and Ayala the tremendous excitement I felt yesterday upon reading Ya’arah teacher’s enthusiastic note. I am attaching a copy of what she wrote in the Parent-Teacher notebook.
Ever since Ya’arah received the VOCA computer, her time in school is filled with content – She participates in the lesson, copies words from the board and has even made remarkable progress coloring and writing thanks to her use of the electronic pen! To my surprise, she even prefers it over a touch screen. Use of the electronic pen has also improved her pencil grip.
All the bulky folders full of communication boards remain at home now, and instead, we send Ya’arah with her compact computer!
Amazing improvement has taken place in her general abilities as well. She can already read and write on the computer: Abba, Ima, Galit (her sister) Tami (her other sister), Saba, Savta and more.
All this in less than a month!
Thank you so much!

Will she smile?
Does she know how? Continue reading A Mentor’s Thoughts

Thank you, Creator, for the people you send
Who do G-dly work, as a hand they extend
Most of their day is devoted to others,
To their fellow Jews, whom they love as brothers.
Upon them we lean, sharing our woes
But we know that from one man their kindness flows – Continue reading A Sweet Retreat
