YNA Chesed is a program that offers Netiv Aryeh students unique volunteer opportunities during their free time.
More than the students give, they actually gain from their experiences.
Who we work with:
Chesed L’Orchim – Machlis
For nearly 35 years, The Machlis family has been hosting uplifting Shabbat & holiday meals. The hundreds of guests include people from all walks of life. Netiv students help prepare the experience, from peeling potatoes to setting the numerous Shabbat tables.
The Machane Yehuda “shuk” is one of the busiest attractions in Jerusalem, where at any moment tons of people are scouring and purchasing at the many stalls. For those in need, alert Netiv students sporting bright green T-shirts scatter about the market to give a hand.
ALEH is a warm home for children with severe disabilities, helping them to develop and enjoy a greater quality of life. Netiv students work with the caregivers to both entertain the children and support them in performing daily activities.
Shalva’s programs provide an all-encompassing range of services for hundreds of individuals from infancy to adulthood. Additionally, Shalva supports and enables families to raise their children with disabilities within the family framework.
Shaare Zedek Medical Center Band
Unfortunately many hospital visits are often-times challenging and can really demean spirit. Every week a group of YNA students go to Shaare Tzedek Hospital to put smiles on children as well as adults faces that have not smiled in a while. While children receive toys and hear joyous singing, adults love to sing along and forget about what they are in the hospital for.
