Ayala, my younger sister, arrived at the hostel more than 20 years ago, after a random meeting with a group of special needs students from Jerusalem,
who were on vacation in Naharia. I was so impressed I had to express my interest I received a phone number from the group’s instructors, and after I called, I received a happy message for us, particularly for my mother (may she rest in peace), that a similar hostel is about to open in Ramla
where my parents lived.

Caring for Ayala demanded a lot of energy from my mother, especially when Ayala has been physically harmed several times As her older sister, this made me want her to be safe, and in good company. Because whenever she got home from the employment center, she would be alone, with no company but her family.

Finally, the day arrived when Arusi family showed up with a big plant and a bigger hope, for our Ayala to receive a good life.
and it was good. It has been better than good.
To this day, over 20 years later – an ever-growing goodness.

Every time my family and I come, we are struck with the urge to hug every kind member of the staff, who does holy work. Residents are always happy, smiling, clean, full of dignity, well dressed and well cared for Every day there is an interesting and enjoyable activity. And Ayala is happy, joyful, marry, loving and loved. As a family we know she has it well, we are calm, we know someone’s looking after her, taking care of her, and answering all of her needs.


So Bravo,
And much gratitude.
Ayala’s family,
Particularly Bracha, her sister.
