Dear Ezer Mizion Ambulance Team,
“…The wheels of time speed down the highway of life, dashing forward as in a hurtling race down the broad lanes,
Passing the various interchanges, crossing busy intersections.
Only on occasion, when something gets caught in the wheels… Continue reading Wheels
Dear Mrs. Lerner,
Several weeks ago, I accompanied my mother on a walk that Ezer Mizion sponsors for elderly women in the National Park. I was so impressed by the sense of responsibility exhibited by Ruth (the Ezer Mizion volunteer) that I felt that I must write to you. Her pleasantness and kindness are reflected by her warm smile and the very respectful way with which she responds to every question posed by the participants. She is personally acquainted with each and every one of them, and knows how to say the right word to each one. They all return her love, with love. Continue reading Love, Love, Love

Blood Donation Collections – In Appreciation
We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to Ezer Mizion, with whom we have been working in collaboration for years, and of course, to all the voluntary blood donors who came to donate blood at the special drive we coordinated together on Monday, Nov. 7, 2011.
Our urgent call to you came in light of the desperate shortage in our supply of type O blood units, the result of an unusually high demand on the part of the hospitals, for treatment of two patients who needed transfusion of many blood units. Therefore, we asked you to coordinate an immediate emergency blood drive at Ezer Mizion’s Bnei Brak branch.
Within a short time, the donor drive was arranged, and in the framework of the drive, 272 (!) blood units were collected. These units helped us provide a response to the hospitals’ urgent demand for blood units and components.
A blood donation is always a life-saving act. When the blood unit supply at the hospitals dwindles dangerously, a blood donation serves as an even more noble and vital deed.
We thank Ezer Mizion as a whole for giving its sponsorship to such an important matter, which deals almost entirely with saving lives. We also want to thank you in particular for dealing with this matter with the utmost seriousness and importance, both in coordinating the donor drive on such short notice, in working to bring in so many donors to do this important act, and in standing by MDA’s blood collection staff throughout the course of the drive, with everything that it involves.
Please convey our thanks to all the donors who gave of their blood and their time on such short notice.
We look forward, now and in the future, to continued collaboration in donor drives under your auspices, with the same marvelous attitude and generous assistance.
Thank you again!

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!
I sat opposite a little girl…
Pained. Contorted. Paralyzed. Silent.
Will I succeed?
What is success?
Will I be able to bring a tiny ray of joy into a life of blackness…misery…despair
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
There are some things that you hear a lot about, but do not really grasp until you encounter them in real life. Only then do you suddenly truly understand all that you heard or saw on the subject, and realize that – until now – you really had no idea what it was all about.
That’s what happened to me recently when, for various medical reasons, I had to travel from my home to the hospital, back and forth, repeatedly. When I attempted to use public transportation, I learned that I would have to take three different buses in order to reach my destination. Continue reading Three Trains
