Director General ALEH


Dear Friend:

It’s been nearly a quarter of a century since ALEH and its children became part of my life. For 25 years, I’ve watched these special children grow and develop, and from 5 youngsters in a small apartment, the ever-expanding ALEH family now includes over 650 infants, children and adults throughout Israel.

Special families have special connections. Your friendship and support have been so meaningful to me over the years. Like every family, we have shared pride, joy, and tears, touching moments and milestones.

Even more so, the bond that connects us is the choice we have made: to love these children, to nurture them, and to give them every opportunity to grow. Together, we have chosen to see beyond their disabilities to the spirit and potential within.

Yehuda Marmorstein with child from ALEHAs we begin a New Year, I thank you for choosing to provide a real quality of life for our precious children. May you and your dear ones be blessed with the same sweetness you have bestowed upon our children every day of their lives.

With best wishes,

Yehuda Marmorstein
