A Legacy of Kindness & Commitment Through the Generations

A Legacy of Kindness & Commitment Through the Generations

Monday, May 20th, 2013


The recent visit of the Silverstein and Kule families to ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran was an emotional and moving event for all four generations present – from great-grandparents to young children.

The Silversteins are supporters of ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran since its inception, and the village’s first residential home is named after their precious late great-granddaughter, baby Chaya Emuna Kule z”l.

The Silverstein family arrived with 4 generations, enabling their young children to actively participate in carrying on their values of caring and commitment for Israel’s most vulnerable members.

It was very meaningful for the family to see the remarkable development of the village since their last visit.  Today, over 130 residents live in ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran and enjoy a wide range of on-site innovative therapies, including a hydrotherapy pool, a therapeutic safari and a riding therapy track.

During the visit, Raine and Stanley Silverstein dedicated the Eran Circle at the entrance of the village.  Doron Almog, chairman of ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran and father of Eran, spoke at the occasion and expressed his deep feelings for this special appreciation of his life’s work.  Michael Kule spoke emotionally as well, connecting his personal loss of his daughter Chaya Emuna to that of Doron and Didi’s tragedy in losing Eran z”l.

The legacies of Chaya Emuna and Eran z”l live onward at ALEH Negev-Nahalat Eran, where the joy, dignity and quality of life for hundreds of Israel’s severely disabled children serve as a model of a meaningful legacy to bequeath to one’s children and grandchildren.
