“Thank you so much to everyone at Ohel Sarah for the amazing work that you do. It was an honor to see firsthand the projects and to meet your wonderful clients, children, adults and parents, and the very many people who give their time to make Ohel Sarah the wonderful place that it is. Kol Hakavod!”
Mrs. Celia Gould, spouse of former British Ambassador to Israel.
“Seeing young men working in nature is beautiful and inspiring! In this day and age, where technology suppresses man’s ability to really connect to his surroundings, I am impressed by Ohel Sarah’s encouragement of its students to appreciate and live nature.”
Mr. Chaim Messing, Chairman of the Jewish National Fund, Central Israel, during his visit to Ohel Sarah’s Therapy Greenhouse.
“It is wonderful to see these women working and being involved in meaningful employment. I am a staunch believer that people with special needs deserve to feel like contributing individuals in the community. Ohel Sarah serves as an advocate for adults with disabilities and advances their right to take an active part in society”
Mr. Eli Dadon, Chairman of the Israel National Lottery.
“I have been deeply impressed by the devotion, high professional standards, care and warmth and individual attention that each student at the organization receives…and by its constant aspiration towards advancement and improvement – all carried out with the purpose of providing the best possible care to the students.”
Michal Hertzog, Wohl Foundation.
Breaking free from the usual charity events, OSY is giving young people what they want, and raising money at the same time.
OSY (Ohel Sarah Youth) was set up just over a year ago with the ambition of inspiring young people to give to charity. This is their second sell-out event – OSY: Unplugged, a live music night held at Tileyard Studios in London’s King’s Cross on Saturday 29th November.
The committee is made up of 12 young professionals. Committee chairman, Emily said there is an opportunity to encourage young Jewish people to give to charity and back to the community. We want to give people different events and raise awareness for Ohel Sarah, as many don’t know the amazing work that they do in Israel to help disabled children and adults. Their programmes offer housing, education and employment and encourage their integration and participation in society.
Four talented, up and coming bands gave their time, including BEN BROWN AND BAND, Oscar Welsh, Sages of the Subway and Asher & Friends. The event had an amazing turnout of 150 people, and the committee raised in £3000 for a new music programme.
At a time when many young Jewish people fear the uncertain political landscape in the UK it was remarkable to see so many young people come together and help a charity based in Israel.
The OSY Committee want to thank everyone that came to support their event!
