Our Story
Jerusalem was divided and besieged with social and economic challenges. There was no time to think about how to help the elderly, let alone how they could contribute to the young state.

Myriam Mendilow, a school teacher, was distraught by the elderly’s loss of self-respect as well as by her students’ disrespectful attitude toward them. She decided to take action. 

Inspired by one of the pillars of tzedaka, helping others help themselves, she opened a small bookbinding workshop where eight local elderly men were trained in the craft. Local schools brought tattered books from their libraries to the workshop, and for a small fee, the elderly rebound the books. The children started to bond with the elderly, and soon the group of beggars rediscovered that even in their old age, they had something to contribute to society. Almost 60 years later, Yad LaKashish has expanded to 10 workshops and nearly 300 elderly.
For 27 years, Myriam led the organization with vision and passion. Upon her passing, Nava Ein Mor was selected to continue Myriam’s mission. Under her direction, Yad LaKashish expanded its local and global impact; the number of elderly artisans doubled and acquisition of the campus in which Yad LaKashish operates was completed. After 28 years of dedicated leadership, Nava retired and in December 2017 and passed the baton to Ariela Schwartz-Zur, who was her deputy director for more than a decade.

Yad LaKashish is proud to have pioneered a model of positive aging, and nearly 60 years later we continue to create a space where the elderly can remain active, contributing members of society.

Our Mission

What We Do
Since 1962, Yad LaKashish has provided creative work opportunities for thousands of Jerusalem’s most deserving  elderly residents. In addition to a monthly stipend, Yad LaKashish participants are entitled to a comprehensive package of social and financial benefits, including an unlimited monthly bus pass, a daily communal and nutritious meal, and access to dental care subsidies. The elderly at Yad LaKashish, many of whom do not have nearby family, also gain a sense of community and belonging.
While our focus is on empowering the elderly, Yad LaKashish is dedicated to making an impact on the attitudes of the younger generation towards seniors. Our tour provides a platform to show young people that elderly members of society can be active contributors to the community. 
Who We Serve
The majority of program participants are Jewish immigrants from the FSU, Ethiopia, South America and Iran, many of whom survived the Holocaust, others walking across the Sudan to save their families from war and famine.

Upon arrival in Israel, they faced significant economic and social challenges. They struggled to find meaningful work given their advanced age and lack of basic Hebrew, and suffered from isolation and food insecurity.

Yad LaKashish was created to offer these struggling seniors an opportunity to once again become contributing members of society. Program participants receive on-the-job training by professional artists and become part of a team in their designated craft, and beyond that, of a community of fellow elderly artisans. Together, they produce a wide array of items that are sold in our gift shop, the proceeds of which are invested back into our operation.

While the financial support is significant for them, the most important benefits they gain are not material: independence, a renewed sense of purpose and self-worth, dignity, well-being and belonging.

“Do not cast me off in old age; when my strength fails, do not forsake me!" - Psalms 71:9

Message from Our Director
It is my great privilege to be the Executive Director of Yad LaKashish, a Jerusalem-based non-profit at the forefront of social and financial advocacy for the elderly.

Since its establishment in 1962, two goals have guided Yad LaKashish's activities: to empower needy elderly to be active, contributing citizens; and to advance positive attitudes in the community at large about the elderly and their place in society.

The success of our unique model for positive aging is reflected in the considerable acclaim it has received, both in Israel and overseas; the enthusiastic feedback from visitors, who leave with a new-found appreciation for the elderly and their capabilities; and, most importantly, in the commitment of our elderly artisans, who gather day in, day out to create beautiful handmade items to a high standard.

Drop by for a visit, browse our on-site or online gift shop, and join us in advancing a more equitable and just world.

We can’t wait to meet you!

A letter from our chairman:

Dear Friends,

For the past 60 years, Yad LaKashish has offered creative work opportunities in a warm and empowering community environment to thousands of needy elderly.
The social and financial support that we provide gives our elderly artisans a reason to get up in the morning, and helps them live their golden years with a sense of purpose and dignity.
You, our friends and partners, can directly influence and improve the quality of life of the elderly as they continue to cope with the challenges of well being in their advanced age.
Visit our artisan workshops, purchase beautiful handicrafts, witness the pride our elderly take in each of their creations and find inspiration in a place that is like no other.
