The innovative “Senior Health and Life Enrichment Center” is under construction. This exceptional Center will provide unprecedented welfare, social, cultural and medical services for the elderly of broader Jerusalem.
To mention a few: nutritional guidance, exercise and fitness especially designed for the elderly, enrichment programs, lectures and continued education, weekly food packages for the local seniors, and meals on wheels for the homebound.
The Center will provide a café to meet with friends and a wide range of therapies will be provided including a pool and outdoor gardening as well as a hairdressing parlor to lift ones spirit.
A synagogue and study hall is an important part of the Center.
The Center is located on Golda Meir Boulevard which is one of Jerusalem's main thoroughfares and is adjacent to the Ramot Mall, second largest in Jerusalem, with bus lines available from every direction. The elderly will be naturally drawn to this location for a one-stop solution to their daily needs and to take advantage of all the services available through the Center.
Transportation and traffic patterns will make it possible to reach the Center quickly and effectively.
The Center will be a meeting place for people of various cultural backgrounds, drawing them together to broaden their life perspectives and foster unity midst their divergent traditions.
