1 in 3 Holocaust Survivors in Israel live in poverty. Even as Coronavirus cases in Israel begin to decline, the elderly, including Holocaust Survivors, remain at high risk.

Dimona is home to hundreds of Holocaust Survivors. Unfortunately, many of them live below the poverty line and are unable to afford basic expenses like buying food.

Meir Panim has made it its priority to set up a Day Center specifically for Holocaust Survivors so they have a place to receive daily meals and have the opportunity to socialize with friends through a variety of special group activities. For many, the Dimona Holocaust Survivor Day Center has become a second home.

Directed by a Social Worker, the program supports the needs of the Survivors as they age, providing not only nourishment for their bodies but also for their souls. An array of activities like holiday celebrations, bingo, exercise classes, dances, trips and even manicures and pedicures are offered. Through this center, Meir Panim ensures that these Survivors, who have been through so much in their lives, can enjoy each day in a meaningful way and have the opportunity to age with care and dignity.

Sadly, due to COVID-19, and the danger it presents to the elderly, operations at the Holocaust Survivor Day Center have been limited. However, Meir Panim continues to support the remaining Holocaust Survivors throughout the country with Meals-on-Wheels deliveries and with phone calls to check on their wellbeing.

Even as Coronavirus cases in Israel begin to decline, the elderly, including Holocaust Survivors, remain at high risk. This Yom HaShoah, honor Israel’s remaining Survivors with a gift to Meir Panim, so they can receive the quality care they deserve.
