On a recent visit to the new Home for Holocaust Survivors which the Christian Embassy is helping to establish in Haifa, an ICEJ AID team found workers busy putting in a new elevator and fitting rooms with a fire alarm system. Amid these important finishing touches, a handful of elderly survivors were starting to move their belongings into place, anxious to begin anew in this special assisted-living facility operated by the local Israeli charity Yad Ezer L'Haver ("Helping Hand to Friends").

The director of “Helping Hands”, Shimon Sabag, is arranging a gala dedication ceremony for mid-September which will be attended by Israeli President Shimon Peres, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, several cabinet ministers and two dozen Members of Knesset, plus the two Chief Rabbis of Israel and many other guests. The ICEJ will be honoured at this event as the primary funding source for the home, which is being hailed as a model for assisting the thousands of destitute, ailing and lonely Holocaust survivors in Israel today.
