The 68th annual Toronto Negev Dinner, honouring Alex Eisen, was a tremendous success. Over 1,200 people from every segment of the community, including Toronto Mayor John Tory, attended this prestigious event in support of the Jewish National Fund.  

Alex, a long time supporter of JNF, was honoured for his decades of community service to numerous Canadian and Israeli charities.

Funds raised are in support of a new rehabilitation centre for wounded veterans at Beit Halochem in Ashdod. JNF’s mandate is to build Israel and we are proud to care for Israel’s injured heroes. Thanks to the generosity of hundreds of supporters, JNF will make Alex’s dream a reality. 

Check out the tribute video below to learn more about Alex Eisen and this very meaningful project:

A New Rehabilitation Centre for Wounded Veterans in Ashdod

Proceeds from the 2016 Negev Campaign will fund the physiotherapy and hydrotherapy wing serving wounded veterans and severely injured victims of terror at the soon to be built Beit Halochem Rehabilitation Centre.
Beit Halochem Canada, Aid to Disabled Veterans of Israel, is a non-profit organization committed to rehabilitating, rebuilding and enhancing the lives of the over 51,000 Israeli’s who have become disabled in the line of duty or as victims of terror.
Leading edge Beit Halochem Centres in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Nahariya, and Beer Sheva offer an array of exceptional services including physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, therapeutic devices, specialized sports equipment and training, family
oriented programming, creative and cultural activities.
Physiotherapy treatments are the majority of therapies administered at Beit Halochem. Those who are severely wounded, with permanent injuries incurred during their military service, require an individualized program, receiving treatment up to 4 times a week from experienced physiotherapists with extensive training. The new centre in Ashdod and the highly specialized physiotherapy and hydrotherapy treatments that will be provided are critical life changing services for Israel’s brave men and women injured in the line of duty.
