Come take a walk with me around Yad Sarah House in Jerusalem. It is an enchanted place. Follow me and I will show you the magic

I’ve been a volunteer at Yad Sarah now for about four months, working in the public relations department as an English writer. One of my first assignments was translating the content of Yad Sarah’s Hebrew Internet site with an eye to creating a new and updated English site that corresponds to the Hebrew one. In order to write about Yad Sarah, I had to learn about it. So I began wandering the building, getting to know the many services Yad Sarah has on offer and the very special people behind them. I started my tour on the first floor, right near the main entrance. Most people encounter Yad Sarah for the first time through its medical equipment lending service and I was no different. A headache sufferer for years, my doctor had recommended I try breathing pure oxygen when an attack started, and I turned to Yad Sarah for help. I was so impressed by the helpful, professional and warm staff that I decided to volunteer at Yad Sarah, too. Later, I found the exhibition and guidance center on the 2nd floor which is designed like a model apartment to display the range of equipment available in a way that helps one understand how everything works. My wanderings next took me to one of my favorites, the very impressive Emergency Alarm Response Center on the first floor. Here sit the very dedicated volunteers that operate the center 24/7 helping subscribers in distress get the help they need, whether that means an ambulance on its way in minutes or just a comforting word. Some of my other favorites are the Day Rehabilitation Center, known in Hebrew as the “Shikumon,” Yad Riva which offers help to seniors in need of legal services, and Da’at Medical Query Service, which provides patients and their families a fuller understanding of the illness they are dealing with. So often we know of people struggling in these very circumstances and how wonderful it is to know that help is available. Let’s not forget the Caregivers Center which supports those struggling with the challenges of caring for an ill or disabled family member or the Life Story Project which helps Holocaust survivors and other seniors leave a written legacy for their families. There are so many fabulous services at Yad Sarah I can’t possibly tell you about all of them. You’ll have to come and take a tour at our new visitor’s center—The Israel Giving Experience. From the first moment I became a Yad Sarah volunteer, I was accepted warmly by everyone I met. It’s been a very rewarding experience that has given me the chance to get to know an amazing organization and the dedicated people that make it run.By YS Volunteer Charna Duchanov
