Shimon Peres was not the only prime minister or president to visit Yad Sarah over the 40 years of its existence, but his visit was very special to us

Peres toured Yad Sarah House in Jerusalem, accompanied by Yad Sarah founder Uri Lupolianski, and expressed his admiration and support for the sense of purpose that can be felt so strongly within its walls and for the vital role Yad Sarah fills in Israeli society. Here Peres is seen during a tour of the Equipment Maintenance Workshop in the early 2000s. During the tour, Peres warmly acknowledged the volunteers he met, telling them: "You are continuing the time-honored Jewish tradition of "Each one helps the other, saying to one another, “take courage."" He went on to say that Yad Sarah is the most important enterprise in Israel in the field of medicine and rehabilitation. He singled out Yad Sarah's groundbreaking Home Hospitalization Service as a pioneer on a national as well as a global scale, offering patients the opportunity to recuperate in the best possible place – in the comfort of their own homes surrounded by loved ones.
