An Insight Into the Inner Workings of Yad LaKashish
Artist and designer Tzipi Zohar has been working at Yad LaKashish since 2010. In addition to running the paper mache workshop, she has been professionally involved with the textiles, rehabilitation and ceramics workshops. We asked Tzipi if her work experience with the elderly is any different from other positions she held in the art field.
Emphasis on Quality is a "Win-Win"
There is no doubt that Yad LaKashish stands in a class of its own when it comes to programs and services for the elderly, particularly the elderly poor. Visitors to the workshops praise the level of seriousness with which the elderly artisans engage in their work, and marvel at the beautiful creations that result.
Professional Visits to Yad LaKashish in 2012
Yad LaKashish has been a model of inspiration for communities in Israel and beyond since 1962. Fifty years on, we still serve as a unique tzedakah model, showing how the elderly can and must remain a vital and relevant part of society.
This year, we have had the pleasure of hosting many professionals and government officials who have chosen to re-acquaint themselves with our mission and ideology. Recently, we hosted several senior officials from the Ministry of Social Affairs and department of Culture, Society and Leisure Administration for the City of Jerusalem.
