A Visit from the Tikvah Program

Beit Issie Shapiro - Amutat Avi

In December 2008, Beit Issie was delighted to host a visit by a group of young adults with special needs between the ages of 17-35 from the Tikva program in New York. They came with the Tikva Director, Howard Blas and program founders, Barbra and Herb Greenberg who now live in Raanana, Israel. Apart from showing great interest in the Beit Issie Shapiro, they had a wonderful time enjoying a multi-sensory experience in our magical Snoezelen room and generating a lot of energy in our sports center.

The visit to Beit Issie Shapiro was the first experience out of their 10 day trip to Israel and is part of their intensive Jewish education program.
