Shkeydia Cohen writes about a dedicated couple who volunteer their time and talents for the good of others

As part of the “My Yad Sarah” series, I am happy to introduce a wonderful couple you may have already met – Rina and Avner Cohen. She volunteers at the Exhibition and Guidance Center (where I also volunteer). He volunteers at “Yad Sarah Mesayaat,” (Yad Sarah's Helping Hand) better known by its acronym, Yasam. Rina says, "I discovered the full range of Yad Sarah’s services and became a “public relations ambassador for the organization.” Rina tells me a bit about herself. "I was born in the Mekor Baruch neighborhood of Jerusalem and presently live in Pisgat Ze’ev. I am married with five children and two grandchildren and I have a bachelor’s degree in sociology and political science.I worked for about 40 years in the Rehabilitation and Families and Commemoration Department of the Ministry of Defense.""After taking early retirement, I looked for volunteer work that would be different from the kind of work I had done until now. But it seems that things happen for a reason, and I found myself again in the field of rehabilitation, immediately thrown into intensive activity at Yad Sarah. I volunteer twice a week, seven hours each time at the Exhibition and Guidance Center." "I discovered an organization that offers assistance in such a wide range of areas, to the point that I felt guilty about not knowing about Yad Sarah when my parents were ill. Nowadays my husband and I see ourselves as public relations ambassadors of Yad Sarah. When our friends or parents encounter problem, we immediately suggest that they ask for help or advice from Yasam or other Yad Sarah service departments. Avner says he found good people on his journey. "I was born in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Nachlaot. After graduating from high school and completing mandatory army service, I worked in the Finance Ministry as director of the Stamp Division of the Government Printer for about forty years. In my last year, I worked as director of Special Printing Services including passports and matriculation exams." "Before retirement, I began volunteering in the traffic division of the police force, and after three years left to volunteer at Yad Sarah, following my wife’s lead. I now volunteer twice a week, for about seven hours each time at Yasam." "I discovered a wonderful staff, whose sole goal is to help others. The staff is friendly and supportive. There is no question about it – I have definitely met good people in the middle of my journey." "Many people come to Yasam for advice and equipment. The staff patiently explains to each person how each type of equipment can help heal, make them comfortable, or pamper them and improve their quality of life." "I took an additional task upon myself . I distribute bread, rolls, and baked goods to the Day Rehabilitation Center and others – after receiving a generous donation from Reishit Dagan Bakery in Pisgat Zeev. Thank you, dear bakers!” Thank you dear couple! In summary, Rina and Avner emphasize that they are no different than anyone else. "We receive much more than we give, and we have made many new friends in our giving circle."
