Close To The Heart

This community Shabbat was a special one!

Dozens of tutors from the Beit-Shemesh branch hosted the special children in their private homes for the weekend.

The special families got a weekend off of their continues treatment routine and regained their forces, 
and the special children got to spend the weekend with there best friends in a loving and safe environment.

During the weekend they enjoyed group activities and gatherings, joint Shabbat meals, social games and hikes.

Once again, we were moved to see how the volunteering developed in to a meaningful relationships beyoned the formal program.
