Former UK Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks visits ALEH

Monday, November 18th, 2013


ALEH was honored to host former UK Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks and his wife this week.  They were accompanied by Judith Sacks, an active member of ALEH Jerusalem’s Ladies Committee.

The group visited ALEH’s high dependency unit and saw the care and love given to the precious infants.  They also sat in on a communication class in ALEH’s school, where they were fascinated at how the children used communication boards and big macs to express their choices.

“The Shechina dwells here,” said Rabbi Sacks, visibly moved.

The Rabbi was also impressed by ALEH’s Mitzvah tree, where kids from all over the world choose to sponsor a project for the children of ALEH in honor of their Bar or Bat Mitzvah.  As an educator par excellence, he appreciated teaching children to use the occasion to share their blessings with the most vulnerable amongst us.

We extend our sincere thank you to Rabbi and Mrs. Sacks for taking the time to inspire us.  We look forward to your next visit!
