OHEL Bais Ezra Residents Welcomed in CommunitiesÂ
OHEL Childrenâ€™s Home and Family Services strives to integrate individuals with disabilities into our community. OHEL weekends play an important role, both providing OHEL individuals with a warm and welcoming experience and educating the wider community about the abilities of all.
In the Great Neck Synagogue in Great Neck, Long Island, individuals from OHEL Bais Ezra residences spent a beautiful weekend with staff members, and community families. The residence members were welcomed with open arms, and they prayed with the main congregation, receiving many different honors. Well over 100 people attended the meals, including the hosts and their children. Moving thank you speeches were delivered by the individuals who attended. Dancing and singing were followed by dessert, and then home to the hosts for some time to relax.
On the other side of town, in Brooklyn, members from different OHEL Bais Ezra residences attended another weekend program along with members from Kol Israel and the Yeshiva of Flatbush. The OHEL residents again received numerous honors during prayer, as well as gave speeches during Dinner, Lunch, and between afternoon activities.
