How it all started…

Sharon and her young daughters regularly visited a relative in an Assisted Living Facility.  During these visits, it was clear that the presence of children brought much joy to the residents.  Sharon began searching, and discovered several models world-wide for inter-generational activities.  With these in mind, she invited others interested in this concept to brainstorm with her, thus creating a multi-disciplinary working group.  This has evolved into the establishment of a non-profit named "קשר בין דורי – Connecting the Generations“.

What do we as a society gain by creating these relationships? For the elderly: a sense of meaning by using knowledge and life experience, lessening feelings of loneliness and boredom, preservation and improvement of physical and mental state. For the children: receiving love and warmth from adults, learning new skills, strengthening social and emotional intelligence, learning to accept others and patience.
