About the project
Aleh was established in 1982 by a group of parents to provide medical, para-medical, social and educational care to children with severe, multiple disabilities. Aleh operates a network of facilities, including a residential and rehabilitation facility in Jerusalem created in 1997. Staff of the Jerusalem center care for 30 children at a ratio of two caregivers to every child. The Jerusalem Foundation supported renovation and expansion of Aleh’s Jerusalem facility in 2002. Work included creation of the Harry Weinrebe Nursery Wing for 15 children up to age three, expansion of the existing dormitory to house an additional 35 children, and creation of a special education center, including six classrooms and therapy rooms.
