Evening is in honor of all of these children and in loving memory of Michael Roth, who lived in laughter and taught us all joy….and who showed us the urgent need for only the best education for children with disabilities.
Tzohar Halev – literally Window to the Heart – is a groundbreaking network of 23 non-denominational, completely free-of-charge schools in Israel for children in a range of developmental and emotional disabilities. Committed every single day to the quality of life of these children both present and future, Tzohar tailors innovative therapies for each child that include animal, art and music developmental activities along with the very latest in communication, PT and learning technologies. As these children grow, many are placed into supervised community residences where they live as adults with the maximum possible degree of independence, continuing their social and creative progress and even taking jobs at partnering Israeli companies. Few if any other schools or organizations globally come close to what Tzohar Halev is doing.
We look forward to seeing you there as we celebrate the future of these children!
