Your Legacy

Kisharon means talent and when Chava Lehmann founded the charity in 1976 with one small classroom, she was determined to ensure people with learning disabilities were cared for and given opportunities to realise their potential. This was Chava’s will and her legacy.

Your will can also be your legacy to future generations; not just from your assets, but from your Jewish values and beliefs. By leaving a legacy to Kisharon, like Chava, you too can be remembered for good from generation to generation. 

As long as there are people like you, Kisharon will be able to promote and ensure access to education, employment and independent living for those with the most profound learning disabilities ensuring everyone can feel included in the communities in which we live. 

Kisharon will continue to strive to make the impossible possible for those most at risk from intolerance, misunderstanding, isolation and prejudice.

With your help, we will continue to strive for what Chava set out to achieve.

Elias attends Kisharon School. He has a very rare condition called Mowat Wilson Syndrome, of which there are only 200 cases recorded in the world. It means that he has development delay in all areas – he only recently started walking independently over short distances and he doesn’t talk. He has severe learning difficulties.

 Elias’s mother says: “When Elias joined Kisharon there were only 18 children in the school, now they have 38 students and a waiting list. The school now has a class specifically for children with more profound learning difficulties like Elias, and he is thriving in this class.”
