Shalom dear readers!
Shared By: nakrea 11-13-2011I’ve already told you in the past that Lelover Chassidim go to Meron every year on the Shabbat of parashat B’haalotcha. Many years, we went to these Shabbat events with the whole family.
My brothers and one of my sisters decided to go this year and organized an apartment for themselves. The truth is that I really envied them, because I love these Shabbatot. But what can I do? My siblings can just hop in a car and go. For me, going anywhere is a major undertaking. I wasn’t complaining, just feeling bad…until the surprise. Continue reading CP Won’t Stop Me!

To Fight, or to Surrender by: Esther Klein, retired educational supervisor, currently a victim of ALS

pr general helping hand saving from drowningMy son Ahrele moved to Beitar, and I am planning on attending the housewarming party. I am planning… but my family has other plans. I announce my intentions and immediately receive the typical reactions: Mommy, why do you have to travel out there? It’s a big effort for you. Just call him up.

I consider their words. Why fight all day? You don’t feel well – enough, give up. Surrender to harsh reality. The overwhelming majority of A.L.S. patients in my condition are hospitalized in wards for terminal patients, waiting silently for…. And I, I keep fighting all day. I fight because I want to continue…to continue giving. But the ALS is a potent enemy and me? I’m just a weak soldier.

Shalom dear readers!

Ezer Mizion’s Matan – Petach Tikvah Summer Camp
Shalom dear readers!
Finally, the day arrived to set off to the Matan Club summer camp. At 8:30 in the morning, we came to the pick-up station in Petach Tikvah. The buses were already lined up, and some of the campers were already on board.pr sp CP matan 2014 10475718_342417339244542_5280726892753979028_n
Like last year, this time again the bus was equipped with a ramp and I was able to ride right on with my wheelchair. This is the most comfortable way to ride and Ezer Mizion always tries to think of everything. They put me in a good spot and fastened the chair so it wouldn’t move around during the trip. My attendant sat right near me. That made me feel comfortable. We set off and drove directly to the Kinneret. On the way there, my personal counselor was on the second bus, so I only got to meet him later, on the boat. His name is Chaim and he is really nice. They all are. It’s the Ezer Mizion trademark.

Lag Ba’omer in Meron – Even for the Mobility Impaired

pr ambulance new logo no peopleIMG_6403Last week, on Lag Ba’omer, the Hilula of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, all the various authorities worked feverishly to enable the masses of Jews to come to Meron safely for the traditional prayers at the gravesite of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai.

In spite of the complex logistics involved in handling the hundreds of thousands converging in a small area within a 24-hour period, traffic moved smoothly most of the day. In order to reduce the crush on the roads, only public transportation vehicles were allowed in to the area for the course of the Hilula.

This year once again, Ezer Mizion was assigned full responsibility to transport the handicapped and mobility impaired population to the gravesite. People with valid handicapped I.D. cards came to the Parod parking lot via the Sheva intersection, where Ezer Mizion ambulances, manned by courteous, experienced drivers, were waiting to shuttle them all the way up to the site.

 

Each year, more and more mobility-impaired individuals allow themselves to make the trip on Lag Ba’omer, thanks to Ezer Mizion’s special transport service, carried out by dedicated drivers with genuine concern for their passengers’ welfare.
