Heartwarming, uplifting, unifying, with the promise of great things in the future. Communications Manager Haim Shibi recounts an exciting evening of tribute to our dedicated volunteers.

They came with smiling faces, radiating pride in their accomplishments and in their association with Yad Sarah. Our family of dedicated volunteers is always ready to give of themselves to support those in need and the wellbeing of Israeli society as a whole. They came to Rehovot's cultural center as the guests of the town and its mayor, Rahamim Malul. They came to celebrate 40 years of giving to hundreds of thousands of Israeli families, from every sector of the population, from the center and from the periphery. The mayor and his staff welcomed all warmly and enthusiastically. The smiles spoke louder than words ever could. It was wonderful to just be together, to exchange ideas, to share memorable experiences. The sentence –“I get back so much more than I receive” – could be heard many times throughout the evening. Dr. Haim Navon, director of Yad Sarah’s Rehovot branch was praised for his dedication to congenial service and for his innovative approach to improving the lives of so many. His strong working relationship with the local municipality was evident and contributes much to his ability to provide special services such as the one for people with visual impairments. Indeed, Mayor Malul was lavish in his praise for Yad Sarah and its steadfast volunteers, citing their great contribution to his city. “It is a great honor to host you here in our city, the winners of the Israel Prize for volunteering, founded by Uri Lupolianski with love for his fellow man and a desire to help others. There is no match for your organization in the number of people you serve and the wide array of services you offer. I doubt there is another organization like yours in the world.” His words were greeted by enthusiastic applause. Malul also remarked that the government doesn’t always provide solutions for “hidden” social problems that exist in Israel, especially in the areas of education and health services. He stated, “If volunteer organizations did not fill the existing void, Israeli society would be very different.” Malul added, “Your wonderful organization cares for those without means, but also for those – who may have the financial means – but are in need of help and support that is unavailable anywhere else. You give to every citizen, religious, traditional or secular, Arab or Jew. This value of giving, of making a difference in the world is a basic part of the Jewish religion. The crowd was treated to a video presentation on the unprecedented scope of volunteer activities in which Yad Sarah is involved: Equipment lending, transportation services for the wheelchair-bound, home hospitalization services, and so much more. Also on the big screen, the crowd viewed greetings from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as he related how his family had been helped by Yad Sarah and how much he admired its activities. The video presentation was beautifully prepared by Beni Cohen from the Public Relations and Resource Development Department. “You embody the value of volunteerism and mutual responsibility, fulfilling these principles across the the country by helping those less fortunate. You are a philanthropic empire serving the country in more than 100 branches. I wish many years of rewarding endeavor and good health to Yad Sarah’s founder, Uri Lupolianski.” No one received greater applause than Yad Sarah founder Uri Lupolianski, who spoke from the podium and praised all those present at this most memorable event. He had special words for Mayor Malul who so graciously hosted the evening as well as for the director of the Rehovot branch, Dr. Haim Navon, who was largely responsible for its success. The close cooperation between the two has led to the expansion of services in the city and an intense pride in its volunteer spirit. “Haim is doing a wonderful job for the people of this city, as are you, the volunteers, who come to help the weak, the elderly, and the sick – all in the spirit of “Each one helps the other, saying to one another, “take courage!”” Yad Sarah CEO Moshe Cohen kept a watchful eye on every detail of the proceedings. The evening was produced by the enthusiastic and dedicated staff of the Public Relations and Resource Development Department: Director Sepideh Yom Tov and her able assistant, Haya Cohen, the department’s administrative director, Devora Kalmarsky, and the department’s secretary, Yehudit Fatal. Sepideh emphasized that the municipality reached out to Yad Sarah with a generosity of spirit. “All aspects of the arrangements were handled professionally and with a smile. The certificate of recognition awarded to the mayor and his staff expresses our deep appreciation for all their efforts in making the evening such a rousing success.” Thank-you, Rehovot and thank-you to the mayor and his wonderful team – from all of us at Yad Sarah.
