Support a Project:
The Glassman PTSD and Mental Health Centre
In Memory of Rebecca Katz
Herzog Hospital in collaboration with the Jewish National Fund of Canada will establish Dr. Max and Gianna Glassman Ambulatory Center, enabling Herzog to combine all ambulatory services under one roof. This addition will consolidate into one central facility the hospital’s Community Mental Health Center, Children’s Clinic, and Israel Center for the Treatment of Psychotrauma, currently scattered in different buildings throughout Jerusalem. With demand for services continually increasing, this new donation of the Glassman family and JNF Canada will streamline and improve the comprehensive outpatient care that Herzog provides.
Jaffa Daled After-School Educational Enrichment Center
The Jaffa Daled After-School Educational Enrichment Center provides educational, nutritional, recreational and therapeutic support to at-risk children, ages 6-12, 70% of whom are of Ethiopian descent. While the Center currently serves 30 children, there remains a critical need within the community to assist additional children and their families. To address these challenges, with your support the Jaffa Institute will expand the Centre by building an additional floor to the existing building. The new floor will include six rooms which will be used throughout the day for a variety of activities and programming for both children and parents.
Beit Halochem Ashdod
Beit Halochem is a place where injured and disabled victims of terror can regain their dignity and quality of life. When they leave the hospital, Beit Halochem is there to help them rebuild their lives. An integral part of Beit Halochem’s mission is to provide disabled veterans and their families with everything they need to rehabilitate and reintegrate into society. JNF will help fund the physiotherapy and hydrotherapy wing that will be built at the newest Beit Halochem Centre in Ashdod that will serve almost 7,000 injured and disabled veterans, as well as victims of terrorist activity, who are living in that region of the country. Together with their families, more than 15,000 people will benefit from access to a facility in Ashdod.
Migdal Ohr- Mishpachton
Migdal Ohr is a pride of Israel for educating and nurturing more than 12,000 disadvantaged and new immigrant children from all across the country. Each child receives an education, meals, clothing and healthcare, in addition to extra-curricular activities and emotional support. The Mishpachton Project- Residents will live together with an adoptive family of two parents and their own biological children. This model allows the at-risk children to grow up in a safe, supportive and nurturing family environment—people who best understand their needs and have embraced them as their own. Your support to Migdal Ohr will help bring the Mishpachton project to life. JNF will assist Migdal Ohr with the construction of five new buildings to house 500 orphans and at-risk youth together with their foster families. Living with nurturing parents, these children will be afforded a warm and loving environment at the most impressionable time in their young lives.
Resilience Centre in Sderot
JNF Canada will help build a New Trauma Resilience Centre in Sderot that will provide therapy for children and adults suffering from PTSD.
The current facility is located in a building that is not reinforced for rocket attacks, is not accessible to those with disabilities, and is too small to accommodate the growing number of clients.
Thanks to your generosity, JNF Canada will provide the final $250,000 needed to help construct the building necessary to double the number of patients treated. The local authorities expect a dramatic increase in the number of individuals referred to the Resilience Centre.
This is a comprehensive landscape development project at the Eitanim Hospital on Mount Eitan in the Jerusalem Hills. The hospital is part of the Jerusalem Centre for mental health and its patients, in need of psychiatric day care and long-term rehabilitation, are from Jerusalem and its vicinity. The landscape project will be designed to create safe, green and pleasant spaces conducive to well-being and health.
