Modi'in branch director Eli Rosenberg writes about a very special volunteer

She was the first woman in the Israel Police to be a patrol officer in the Petach Tikvah district. Dressed carefully, radiating commitment to the role and loyalty to her mission, she often commanded officers older than her by many years. Rachel Geffen, with a university degree in the history of the Jewish people, built her career in the police force, step by step, over 35 years of service and in a variety of positions. She often represented the Israeli Police Force at events in New York and Los Angeles. Toward the end of her service, Rachel injured her leg and underwent an operation that introduced her to Yad Sarah's wide range of services. "I needed six months of recovery and rehabilitation; that's when I heard about this wonderful organization called Yad Sarah, and there I received the best advice about the devices and accessories that I could use for rehabilitation." "Yad Sarah welcomed me warmly and with a full heart. When I recovered, I decided I wanted to help others and applied to volunteer at Yad Sarah's Modi'in branch, and I have been volunteering there for about five years. Eli Rosenberg adds: "Rachel volunteers in the medical equipment lending center, manages the Exhibition & Guidance Center with a devoted staff of 5 volunteers, and helps me with all of the events at Beit Yad Sarah, combining leadership and management skills with a pleasant manner." "The experience she has brought with her and the quality of her meticulous work in every role she is assigned, inspires both me and the staff. Rachel also "commands" with love three children and six grandchildren. We are very fortunate to have her."
