Welfare and Social Services Minister Haim Katz invited all senior citizens, including Holocaust survivors, to celebrate the Jewish New Year together in guest accommodations that the ministry will operate in retirement and vacation homes throughout Israel.
“Our goal is to ensure that no senior citizen will remain alone during the holidays, and I ask all senior citizens who live alone to register and join the activities,” Katz said.
The office will finance every single elderly person a stay for three to four days during Rosh Hashanah or Sukkot
in one of these guest houses, which will include accommodations, holiday meals and social activities.
Those wishing to join for the holidays should contact the Welfare and Social Services Department. For more information, call *118.
