A group of 29 Jews with disabilities from Uruguay are set to visit Israel next week as special guests of the Jewish Agency for Israel, it said on Wednesday. The visit is a personal initiative by Avital Sharansky, the wife of JAFI chairman Nathan Sharsnky, who raised funds from donors that enabled  the visit to take place.

The participants will be escorted by caretakers to see the sights including the Dead Sea and Jerusalem. "There's no doubt this trip will be different than most," said Becky Sabah, an official with JAFI. "The visit to the Western Wall will be rejuvenating for them."
