Israeli Health Minister tells Kisharon to ‘keep up the good work’.

09 November 2015

Keen guitarist Akiva Deutsch had an appreciative audience when Yakov Litzman Israel’s Minister of Health visited Kisharon College and Adult Day Centre in Stamford Hill.

The Israeli delegation watched a music therapy session at the college, where Akiva is a student.

Mr Litzman joined a discussion on Kisharon’s Adult Employment scheme and heard that more than 80 employers are currently offering jobs to adults with learning disabilities.

Recalling that it was once common for people with learning disabilities to be taken away from their families, Mr Litzman urged Kisharon to “keep up the good work – what you are doing [for people with learning disabilities] is making a loud impression on heaven.”

Pirkei Avos
“The world stands on three things: Torah, the service of G-d, and deeds of kindness.” Kisharon looks at the person not the disability, teaching Torah, Middos and Mitzvot embracing and cherishing everybody’s special talent and bringing out the best in them.
