5:20pm - 6:00pm: Kids 4th Grade and Older Record a Chanukah Video Message

 A Message from Beit Halochem USA/FIDV: When a dad/mom or a brother/sister is wounded, it does not only affect their physical and mental well being but also their immediate family! The constant worrying, prayers for swift recovery, and a wish that eventually life for their loved one and family will return as much as possible to some normalcy are a big part for each family member's journey while their loved one is healing, and that includes the children in the family.
At our Halochem centers in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Beer Sheva and Haifa, we offer special programs for the wounded and their family members, intensive therapies (PTSD), special programs for the blind, both traumatic brain injuries, and opportunities to excel in sports, the arts, music, scholarships, to meet expanded life goals. We provide comprehensive care to our living heroes, those who protect Israel for all of us. Click here to learn more about FIDV.
