THE ILANOT JERUSALEM THERAPEUTIC SCHOOLYARD       

Helping special needs children in Jerusalem

 6 5

2 1

JNF Canada supports special needs populations by developing sites that enhance their quality of life.

The proceeds of this year’s Negev Dinner will support the Ilanot Jerusalem special education school, a public school for special needs students aged 6 -21, with severe motor and cognitive disabilities.

This specially designed, state of the art therapeutic schoolyard offers an accessible and stimulating environment where students can develop their motor and cognitive skills while fostering social and emotional growth. Its shady, green environment is a pleasant setting for physical therapy and other treatments specifically tailored for individual students.

Your contribution will help ensure the creation of a holistic treatment and teaching environment that meets the needs of children and youth with major educational challenges, serving as a model for similar schools in Israel and around the world.
