The Aleh Charitable Foundation

ALEH is Israel's largest network of residential facilities for children with severe physical and cognitive disabilities. We provide 650 children in Israel with high-level medical and rehabilitative care in four residential facilities.

Founded 1982

  • Mission statement

    ALEH believes that every child, regardless of the severity of the physical or cognitive disability, has the right to benefit from the best available care in order to reach his or her fullest potential.

    This steadfast commitment has since changed the face of rehabilitative care in Israel. Today, over 650 children with cognitive and physical disabilities receive state-of-the-art medical, educational and rehabilitative care in ALEH’s facilities.

    ALEH cares for children with medical conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy and Down syndrome, as well as genetic disorders, including Tay-Sachs, Canavan disease and Rett syndrome. Without ALEH, many of these children would otherwise spend their lives in hospitals, with no opportunities for rehabilitation, education, and the love and warmth of a home.

    At the heart of ALEH’s success is the intensely personal relationship that develops between caregivers and the children they care for. Its 400+staffers and large cadre of volunteers develop a close-knit bond with their charges that goes well beyond clinical care. Thanks to ALEH, these children are able to live in much the same way as non-disabled children: attending school, participating in vocational programs and enjoying activities such as swimming at the beach or or touring the countryside.

    We believe that a strong society is judged by the way it cares for its most vulnerable members. Please join us in our mission to raise the bar for this and all future generations.
