We introduce you to some of our devoted volunteers:

Stuart and Hadassa Palmer, residents of Haifa, are devoted volunteers. Always looking for interesting ways to raise funds to cover the costs of our various projects, they have organized 6 fundraising walks and a charity concert.

Mr. Eli Hartman, Director of The Blind Society, volunteers at The Haifa Center as a strategic advisor.

Dr. Cheryl Zlotnick, Associate Professor at Haifa University, voluntarily charts our statistics when we evaluate the results of our work with children.

Dr. Ronald Jacobowitz, renowned American pianist (and mathematician!) entertained the audience with his piano recital at a Charity Concert, initiated and organized by Stuart and Hadassa Palmer.

Zehava Litovsky by combining her love of nature and vast general knowledge, together with her youthful energy, is the perfect guide. She has led all 6 of our fundraising walks, guides our children and staff on field trips, and visits the Center regularly, taking an active interest in all activities.
Elsa Mervin used her love for animals to create a Pet Corner that is the basis of our Animal Assisted Therapy program. Even during the war in the summer of 2006, Elsa made special trips to the Center to make sure that the animals were cared for. Elsa grooms and feeds the animals and takes them regularly to the veterinary specialist for vaccination. In addition, Elsa functions as a housemother ensuring the smooth running of the Center.

Yehuda and Diane Romm: Yehuda, an American Rabbi who spends part of the year in Haifa, volunteers at Arugot. His two hobbies – photography and gardening – find expression here. Using his expertise in photography, he teaches children how to get to know their surroundings through the lens of a camera by running photography courses for youngsters. Yehuda has also sponsored Tu B’Shvat events in which children have decorated flowerpots and planted different plants in them to give as gifts. He has involved the children in planting in the grounds surrounding the Center, teaching the children how to water and tend to their plants. Our special thanks to Diane for all her help in the area of fundraising.
