A little over a year ago Ebenezer Home was given permission to have young Israelis do their National Service with us. This service is for those who for some reason are unable to do regular IDF service. Soon after we got our first-ever National Service request from Abigail.

 Our residents have lots to do every day, but even then it's always nice to welcome old friends who came all the way from the USA to bless our Home!

   A group from Maasay Yahdav ministry visited us earlier in the month. It was fun to watch a short puppet show about importance of doing things together, and it was fun for the residents to make their own puppets from stuff that the group brought with...

She has a whole gallery of her cross-stitched pictures framed and hanging in her room, and in wi...

Our residents go on short trips at every opportunity that Israeli weather affords. But once a year there is an annual trip to one of the wonderful and interesting places in the Land, with rest, lunch and time to interact with each other.

This year our residents went to the Utopia orchid park, and even those who'd been there once or twice before were excited to go again.

The name "Utopia" was given...
