"Over the years, we have referred many patients to [Ohr Jerusalem's sheltered workshops]. Patients were always well received and ... were able to acquire work skills as well as improve their daily functioning. Some were eventually able to become vocationally independent.

We hope Ohr Jerusalem will continue their community service and expand to serve additional people."
