Hot lunches for customers

"Even in quarantine Hesed heats, entertains, treats and feeds ", – so said one of the clients about our work in these difficult conditions. And it's true. Throughout November, we issued and delivered delicious hot lunches to low-mobility customers' homes.. Кожен обід приготовлений і запакований буквально в стерильних умовах. Всього видано 90 комплексних обідів. Це відчутна

Facilitated the work of patronage

Hesed Besht caves not only about the fund's clients, but also about the employees of all its regional offices. It is known, that in the patronage, caring for the elderly and sedentary clients at home, the work is very difficult. А як буває важко на руки, коли потрібно доставити підопічним громіздкі покупки чи принести з Хеседу засоби гігієни, мийні

Eco-project of the Day Center

To diversify and beautify the lives of our senior clients during quarantine, Hesed Besht has launched a new interesting project: invited them to engage in indoor floriculture. Specialists of the foundation bought beautiful exotic flowers (orchid in assortment, dracena, anthurium, guzmania and many others), pots for transplanting, спеціальний грунт, підготували інструкцію по догляду та розвезли це в усі регіони нашого Хеседу

Window to the world

Among Hesed's wards are a large number of people with limited mobility. They are deprived of the opportunity to come to events and participate in the life of the community along with other healthier clients.. This problem has deepened, when the coronavirus pandemic invaded our region: all mass events, всі зустрічі з підопічними оф-лайн були припинені з метою запобігання розповсюдженню хвороби. Щоб підтримати зв’язок один з одним,

The Khmelnytsky Jewish community receives guests

Coronavirus pandemic, Fortunately, did not paralyze the life of the Khmelnytsky Jewish community. We have something to tell and something to show. The Kesher Project in Ukraine launched the project “Traveling with the Communities of Ukraine. Visiting ... ". And we had the honor to be the first, куди завітали жінки Проекту Кешер з України та навіть інших країн. 28 жовтня відбулася перша віртуальна подорож у місто Хмельницький

Mentally and family-wise

Shabbat was especially cozy and pleasant, which we conducted 16 October in our Center for Social Protection. Live communication, fun music and songs, delicious food, parables, Shabbat stories, – all this added a good mood and cordiality to our event. Apparently, кожен із нас дуже гостро відчув, як людям бракує таких душевних зібрань. Ми зустріли Царицю Суботу урочисто,

And again sitting in a cafe

Among the many activities, which we held before Sukkot, gatherings in cafes enjoyed the special affection of our clients. Chamber setting, cosiness, warm atmosphere, beautiful serving and serving, – all this set up a friendly conversation with old acquaintances (котрі бачилися з початком карантину лиш на екранах гаджетів під час онлайн-заходів). Основною темою розмови в

Shabbat meetings

Meetings before Saturday after a quiet walk in the city park, it seems, are already becoming a pleasant tradition. 2 October, a group of our clients again visited the cafe "Eclair" and in an atmosphere of comfort and warmth had a leisurely conversation. The topic of conversation – traditions of Sukkot. Delicious meal, приємна ненав’язлива мелодії, чудовий передсвятковий настрійвсе це навіяло теплі спогади окремих учасників бесіди про

Exhibition T. Yablonska

The story of the museum employee was extremely interesting, Hesed volunteer Olga Nikitina about the artist, її непросту долю та останню серію картин майстрині, писаних лівою рукою. Її роботи не можуть не зворушити,

Saturday: we teach young people

The Sabbath is the greatest for a Jew, the most solemn holiday. He has to work six days in the sweat of his brow, and on the seventh to fully enjoy the great gift of the Most High - the Sabbath: to celebrate at a much set table, praise the Lord in prayers and psalms, дати спочинок тілу і душі. Відколи ми стали проводити шабати онлайн, ми відчули, наскільки веселіше зустрічати шабат усім разом,

With benefit and pleasure

Lack of communication, associated with quarantine, is noticeable. During this difficult period, it is especially important to reach every customer, to ask, what worries him, interested, after all - just a nice and fun time. Therefore, sitting in a cafe, which we organized in late September, були дуже доречними. Дотримуючись усіх вимог карантину, ми зробили цей захід небагатолюдним. Тема нашої розмови –

We honored the memory

Traditionally, every year at the end of September we visit the mass grave in Medzhibozh. 22 September 1942 year, sunny and warm day, when nothing foretold trouble, more than three thousand Jews were shot in the Medzhibizh ravine. This vile and cruel action was secretly prepared by the Nazis. Вночі в яр для риття котлованів зігнали селян, а щоб інформація не просочилася, селян в
