Volunteering at Hod Hasharon Nursing Home
On 14.7.17 our volunteers engaged the elderly at the nursing home with arts and crafts, drawing, and drama. One of the volunteers organized an intriguing and fascinating chess tournament.
In addition, the Ta’ami Tevel dance group joined our volunteers and performed Chasidic folklore dances, as well as Yemenite and Sephardic Jewry, to the delight of the elderly residents.
The fantastic activities were done out of great love and faith. The tremendously positive feedback was echoed by one of the social workers who said, “They brought a breath of fresh air, cheerfulness and joy to our residents . . . as they paid personal attention to each of the residents. We can’t emphasize enough the importance of this contribution to the joyfulness of our residents, whose happiness was evident despite their limitations.”
Our volunteers too had experienced a sense of fulfillment as they succeeded in bringing joy to the vulnerable and the lonely.
Praiseworthy is the people that has this; Praiseworthy is the nation that these are their sons and their daughters.
Below are photos from the activity at the nursing home.
