Heart to Heart Foundation will open a much needed center in Jerusalem for needing children and young adults with Down Syndrome to care and support them. This will feed and clothe them but also to give appropriate full inclusion educational, social, and vocational opportunities in an atmosphere that fosters supervised independence, personal growth, and self reliance all in a safe, secure, and caring environment with full inclusion. This giving the foundation for involvement and acceptance. This will be followed up by vocational training centers offering hands on opportunities in industry, health care aides, restaurant and hotel trade, animal care and garden management in order to further develop many abilities and aptitudes already inherent in many of the population. More information is available directly from the director Rabbi Dr Eliezer Goldstock and he can be reached at email@example.com or directly on +972 (52) 869-9972 but Rabbi Goldstock would like to stress the following: Everything G-d created was made with its own limit and simultaneously with a specific intent. What is the only creation capable of work that has no limit? It is our nefesh Elokis (our G-dly souls)- for the soul is connected with G-d’s essence, which is truly unlimited. And as a result of that connection, the soul is granted unbounded powers.
The education of a child must always be focused not on limitations but rather – on the contrary – on a focused yet unlimited encouragement to succeed. The goal, then, is to see what can be accomplished.
Instill within each child an attitude of success that should be implanted within each child according to their personal specific requisites.
Simcha breaks through all barriers. Simcha enables a child to overcome his limits. There needs to be a simcha at every level of learning that permeates the process of learning and growing. This is the responsibility of the teachers, therapists, administrators, paraprofessional, and staff to bring to the educational setting every day.
Mans true dignity: His sanctity, comes from his being capable of being in the presence of G-d.
This is our goal as a society to overcome all of the limits and constraints. Our boundaries must transcend to a level of seeing and hearing to arrive at a completely new reality of acceptance and full inclusion.
Our objective is to provide a living, working, and recreating base for adults who have Down syndrome in Jerusalem that will provide a complete opportunity to grow and thrive in a fully inclusionary environment.
