ALEH Jerusalem Welcomes Mayor Moshe Lion
Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion visited ALEH’s residential facility
in Jerusalem to learn about ALEH’s high-level medical and rehabilitative care
and what we’re doing to promote true disability inclusion and equity in Israel
and around the world.
Shlomit Grayevsky, director of ALEH Jerusalem, took Mayor Lion and his entourage on a tour of the facility, pointing out the specially-designed living quarters, high-tech special education classrooms and top-of-the-line rehabilitation rooms, as well as all of the other tools used to provide the residents with a continuum of loving care from infancy and childhood through adulthood.
“After what I just saw, I am absolutely speechless. There are no words for what I’m feeling right now,” said Mayor Lion following the tour. “The work done by the ALEH staff and volunteers is intensive and emotionally difficult but incredibly meaningful, and I am in awe of all of you. You are all clearly remarkable people with special souls, who will be rewarded richly in the World to Come. It is very special that there is a place like this here in Jerusalem that sets the tone for what we should value in life and how we should treat others.”
