|About||To promote & support the rehabilitation of Israel's disabled veterans & victims of terror through the Beit Halochem Centers of Zahal Disabled Veterans Org.|
We are motivated by our love for the God and people of Israel and want to show that love in a tangible way while lifting up the name of Jesus. We desire to do this through promotion of the ZDVO Beit Halochem Centers which provide a haven for those whose lives have been permanently impacted physically and/or emotionally, either in the battlefield or as a result of a terror attack.
The four current Beit Halochem centers are located in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem and Be’er Sheva. Another future center is in the planning stages for Ashdod.
These centers serve the veterans and their families by providing sports, rehabilitation and recreation. They also provide a place where the disabled veterans can undergo the various physiotherapy and hydrotherapy treatments, which many will need as long as they live. Here they can participate in sports activities suited to their individual disabilities.
Most centers house an auditorium, multipurpose gymnasium, classrooms, fitness rooms, swimming and hydrotherapy pools, an occupational therapy unit, physical therapy unit, cafeteria, offices, and a social wing.
The centers are natural support systems. The deep relationships
formed are crucial to the rehabilitation process. They feel understood without even saying a word.
