Dear Ezer Mizion,

Shalom!

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.

With G-d’s help, with ever rebounding strength.
For all this and more… Our gratitude and thanks.
