Established in 1998, ALEH Jerusalem provides 82 children and young adults with comprehensive professional care, including special education as well as medical, supportive and therapeutic care.

JNF Canada is raising money to support two important projects:

The first is to build an outdoor terrace that will allow ALEH Jerusalem residents and staff to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors throughout the day.

In addition, we hope to be able to support the hydrotherapy pool, which is a most important therapeutic tool for the residents of ALEH Jerusalem.

ALEH is Israel’s largest network of care for children with severe multiple disabilities.  Over 700 children with intellectual and developmental disabilities and medical conditions receive advanced medical, educational and rehabilitative care in ALEH’s four residential facilities.

In addition, ALEH provides over 26,000 outpatient treatments annually.

ALEH looks beyond the disability to the child within. Its guiding principle is that every individual is special and equally deserving of love, respect, and the opportunity to develop to full potential while enjoying true quality of life. By nurturing development and enriching quality of life, ALEH enables each child to reach their potential.

ALEH’s services and frameworks all provide a dignified, warm and loving atmosphere that recognizes its residents as individuals with abilities, feelings and needs shared by all human beings.
