IE Weinberg Retiree Center Hosts

February 2015

Logo for The Gerry Schwartz and Heather Reisman International Conference 

On January 21, Israel Elwyn hosted an evening reception at the IE Weinberg Retiree Center in Jerusalem for approximately 60 overseas participants and speakers attending The Gerry Schwartz and Heather Reisman 4th International Conference on Pediatric Chronic Diseases, Disability and Human Development.  

Israel Elwyn was among the sponsors of the conference, which was organized by the Hadassah Medical Center, the Israel National Institute on Child Health and Human Development and the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Retiree Center was showcased, and guests enjoyed learning about the myriad services provided to retirees with disabilities, as well as the building’s environmental sustainability features.

In addition to hearing a men’s choral performance, the visitors also viewed an exhibition of photographs taken by several individuals with disabilities who work and study photography at IE’s Kfar Yona Occupational Training Center.
