What do Member of Knesset Avraham Ravitz, Member of Knesset David Azulay, and Beit Shemesh mayor Moshe Abutbul all have in common?
Answer: They all grew up at Zion Orphanage!
Consider just one story from the orphanage:
Eliyahu watched as his mother lost her mind and was institutionalized and his father, unable to cope, chose the destructive path of drugs. He was extremely withdrawn and distrustful. At seven years old, he barely spoke to anyone. At Zion Orphanage, he first encountered caring, responsible adults worthy of trust. Various activities were chosen to help him emerge from his shell and build his confidence: arts and crafts, martial arts, music, computers, gymnastics, as well as speech and play therapies. For Eliyahu, the answer was music. Over the next nine years, his latent talent emerged full force. He began composing music and became lead singer in our Zion Choir.
Today, Eliyahu is headed for a career in music.
Today, Eliyahu displays such confidence and joy that you would never imagine the dark and cold world of his first years of life.
This is an incredible, inspirational, and one-of-kind book about an incredible, inspirational and one-of-a-kind place. Discover the secret of how one man's passion and integrity ignited a legacy that has made Zion Orphanage the world's longest-running Jewish orphanage.
