Dear Ezer Mizion,
To all the organizers, counselors, and wonderful volunteers:
How wonderful to be counted among the generous givers,
To turn ordinary days into holidays
A swimming pool with beneficial water exercise,
A tasty and nourishing breakfast,
A good, interesting and friendly lecture.
“Ezer Mizion” – your work lives up to your name.
You can always be found in the right place at the right time
With G-d’s help, with ever rebounding strength.
For all this and more… Our gratitude and thanks.
From the women at the Achiya Hashiloni Geriatric Day Center in Bnei Brak,
with our greatest appreciation and admiration.
