Dreams…

A bright spot in the nightmare of battling a monster named Cancer

A Bouquet for Those Who Water the Flowers

 

There is an ancient legend that says
That when a child enters the world
An “angel” is born with him in heaven.
I have an angel, we all have.

There is an ancient legend that says
That when a child enters the world
A “star” is created together with him in heaven.
You, I, we all have stars. . . .

There is an ancient legend that says
That when a baby enters the world
He is a flower in the heavenly garden. . .
An angel gives him the dew of heaven to drink
And nourishes him with the warmth of the stars.

But sometimes it happens that a star is hidden;
That the rays of warmth and of light are delayed;
That an angel strays from the path
and doesn’t water the flowers equally
So that their growth is delayed.
And some of the flower’s petals are defective.

But this deficiency doesn’t affect the flower’s
beauty, its happiness, or the glory of its soul.

Because we know how to “see” with our ears
And our eyes “hear” the singing of birds.
We have learned to “see” with our hands
And to “hear” with them melodies and sounds.

We have learned that man is like a bird in flight.
Like a flower that is joyous in G-d’s grace.
And if there are flowers whose petals are unhealthy
Their souls are rich, their roots are deep.
AND YOU ARE G-D’S MESSENGERS

  • You are the warmth
  • You are the strength
  • You are the light
  •  You are the angels

Who water the flowers
And give us the strength to continue
And to look ahead with hope
And for all of this many, many, many
THANKS!!

Esti M. and family

Make A Wish

Dear Ms. Topper,

Thank you so much for carrying out the “Make a Wish” program with Mr. Y. E., a resident of our institution for the last six years.  Words cannot express what an uplifting and emotional experience it was for Mr. E. – starting from the trip itself, and on through all the life landmarks he visited – the Kotel, the neighborhood in which he lived-Beit Yisrael, the Karlin Chassidic Center, the Etz Chaim Yeshiva, and finally the cemetery, where he was able to visit the graves of his parents.

‘Who Never Forgets You’

Thank you note from an employee at the
Mental Health Rehabilitation Catering Service
to her “colleagues” at Ezer Mizion

To the wonderful staff

I work with you, and greatly enjoy
your wonderful attitude,
The  help and support
that each of you give.

And above all –
“Ezer Mizion” –

an “Ezer” – a help.

You all help people, and I see it every day in your department.

Best wishes for much success and a pleasant vacation.

Miri K.
