ALEH All People No Limits. Many friends and readers wanted to know what the children of ALEH do when they become adults. The website and videos all talk about the children and there is no mention of what happens later. So I contacted ALEH and received this welcome and heartwarming reply from Elie Klein, on behalf of ALEH's Communications Department.(I bolded the important bit.)
Our firm serves as an extension of ALEH's communications department. Dov Hirth from ALEH saw your inquiry and requested that I respond.
I want to begin by letting you know how much we all love and appreciate your blog post. We are so happy to hear that you were so touched by the presentations at the ALEH Jerusalem Ladies Committee gala, and we are so grateful that you chose to share that experience with your readers. ALEH really is a special place, and we would be happy to take you on a tour.
Regarding your questions, ALEH provides a continuum of loving care for individuals with disabilities, a framework for life – from infancy and childhood through adulthood. Some of the children you saw in the video are not actually children – they are young men and women in their teens, 20s and even 30s. While some ALEH residents move from our Jerusalem residence to our rehabilitative village in the Negev once they have reached adulthood (some prefer the predominantly adult community there), most of our residents remain in the ALEH centers where they are raised. After all, it's HOME! ;-)
Again, it's one thing to talk about ALEH but experiencing it is something else entirely. We would love to host you at any one of our four residential facilities. Just say when.
All the best & Shana Tova,
A good answer, right?
