For many the cost of hearing aids and therapy might as well be a million pounds.
Deaf children, if given the correct early intervention, are able to integrate into mainstream society. If they miss out, few will ever catch up and will be dependent on us for the rest of their lives.
At Shema Kolenu early intervention, together with pioneering medical science and technology, are crucial to unlocking a child’s ‘silent’ world. Our medical team, including ENT specialists, speech, musical and movement therapists, ensure that each child is accommodated along with their related/unrelated disabilities and we support the parents coping with this unexpected trauma and challenge. Our regional branches throughout Israel cater for all.

Created in 1991, the Israel Guide Dog Centre for the Blind was established to train and supply guide dogs to an increasing number of blind Israelis who were unable to obtain a dog from an English-speaking centre abroad. Hundreds of partnerships have now been created at our centre that is located not far from Rishon L’Zion at Beit Oved. Each partnership costs some 15,000 for the life long care of the guide dog, training and aftercare. A legacy or gift will help provide another pair of eyes to the growing number of blind persons who ‘look’ to us to help restore their independence and dignity.

Jewish Blind & Disabled (JBD)
Bittacy Hill, Mill Hill East
One in five people in the UK faces a diagnosis of disability and someone goes blind every hour, and Jewish Blind & Disabled is the only charity in the Jewish community dedicated to enabling people in this position, from the age of eighteen upwards, to live independently with the dignity and choice that are so easy for others to take for granted. This is not only through their specially designed developments of state-of-the-art mobility apartments with 24/7 support from their own resident house managers, but also through their new Independent Living Advisory Service for those living out in the wider community.
As an independent charity that does not receive any government funding, Jewish Blind & Disabled is very grateful for your support.
Woodside Park Road
Most of us will eventually face the trauma of hearing loss – or already have a loved one who is.
With your help, we can:
· Be an ongoing support and inspiration to families – right from the devastating diagnosis of their baby’s deafness.
· Rescue older people living in care homes from isolation and loneliness and enable them to chat, join in activities and enjoy their final years
· Ensure vulnerable deaf and deafblind people are given lifelong care and support.
For over 65 years JDA has been a specialist community lifeline, enabling people living with deafness to cope with whatever challenges life brings. We receive no statutory funding and depend on legacies and donations to sustain our wide range of services for the Jewish community and beyond.
