I first heard about the program from Varda Kahana, director of the Ezer Mizion branch here in Rechovot, and from Anat Yules, the director of the Municipality’s Div
ision for the Benefit of Senior Citizens. I shared the Aleh organization’s interest in expanding and developing additional services for target populations of seniors with impaired function in order to continue actualizing the organization’s goals and contribute to enhancement of the quality of life for the elderly population in the city. They shared with me the details of the innovative program for the benefit of seniors with cognitive decline that had been in existence for several years.
In our discussions, the idea came up to form a collaboration between Ezer Mizion, the Rechovot Municipality and Aleh which will operate “Bonding and Building”. This program was conceived by EMDA an organization founded by relatives of people with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other similar conditions.

Dear Ezer Mizion,
To all the organizers, counselors, and wonderful volunteers:
How wonderful to be counted among the generous givers,
To turn ordinary days into holidays
A swimming pool with beneficial water exercise,
A tasty and nourishing breakfast,
A good, interesting and friendly lecture.
“Ezer Mizion” – your work lives up to your name.
You can always be found in the right place at the right time
With G-d’s help, with ever rebounding strength.
For all this and more… Our gratitude and thanks.
From the women at the Achiya Hashiloni Geriatric Day Center in Bnei Brak,
with our greatest appreciation and admiration.
Who says therapy has to be boring? At Ezer Mizion, therapy for the seniors is always fun especially around Purim time.
