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 behavioral sciences 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
neshomot 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, 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 work on 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 and healthy lifestyle for the
residents. I believe the idea came from good and so will the resources needed to create it. 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.
