Kol Hakavod!”
Mrs. Celia Gould, spouse of former British Ambassador to Israel.

“It is wonderful to see these women working and being involved in meaningful employment.

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.”
