A note from the founder, Rachelli rosen
Since the age of 14, I have been working and volunteering for the special needs community.
Passionate about making a better and healthier life for all people, I have years of behavior, and
holistic medicine studies under my belt. For a long time I have been dreaming of creating an
inclusive farm for individuals with special needs especially here in the holy land. This farm
will guide its members to a healthier way of life that everyone deserves to experience. The
therapeutic qualities of working with earth and the various tasks involved, makes farm work an
amazing environment for all kinds of individuals.
In the current system I work for in Israel, it’s apparent that there’s much improvement to be
made with the care of the handicap. Instead of being offered a stimulating and meaningful
therapeutic life, they unfortunately receive the lowest grade of care, and are thrown cocktails
of meds to keep them sedated and quiet. Abuse and violence is horrifyingly common in
mainstream institutions. I have witnessed this myself. Unrecognized for their holy special
neshomos that they are, residents are tossed to the side and dealt with unfairly, because of
their disabilities. Parents have shared with me their difficulty in finding a good program, and
even more so once their child has reached the age of 21.
After years of planning, and with a ton of help from the One above, this project is Bezrat
Hashem finally being born. I aim to offer individuals with special needs the opportunity to
have a meaningful occupation, and healthy lifestyle. In the plans we aim to buy our very own
piece of farm land and will build a spectacular greenhouse of joy and healing on it. There will be
special wheelchair accessible gardens, a beautiful therapy corner, an activity area and much
more. The next stage will be to open a group home, in conjunction with the farm, and begin to
practice the therapeutic lifestyle for the residents.
I have just gone into contract for the land to start this project. I believe that Hashem will help
me collect the money needed for this very special mission. If you can help in any way, to assist
in covering the many expenses of starting this holy organization, it would be unbelievable
and immensely appreciated. Achdut is taking care of our sisters and brothers, especially those
that can’t care for themselves. Help me... help them...and help us... all bring Mashiach! Feel
free to ask me any questions.
