The Omanit Senior Day Center on Kibbutz Ginosar serves around 50 senior citizens, made up of about 40% Holocaust survivors and 60% pioneers that helped build this country from the very beginning. They are now in their ‘80’s and ‘90’s.

We have provided food coupons for a very poor woman who has been abandoned by her husband after many years.  She was recommended to us by Tiki—the manager of the senior day center Beitanu in the Jordan Valle.  Omani closed down at the end of August and we gave laminated scripture cards as a going-away present.  They included Jeremiah 29:11-13, Proverbs 3:5-6 and First Corinthians 13, all in Hebrew.

During the Holy Days gifts were provided for 46 special needs children, requested by the head of Social Services for the city of Tiberius. We also made sure the widows, widowers and Holocaust survivors in Tiberius’ poorest neighborhood—Shikun Dalet, were showered with tradition Holy Day holiday gifts.
