WHAT IS KEREN BETH PROTEA?
In the proud tradition of the Southern African Jewish Community, Keren Beth Protea discreetly assists more than 45% of the residents at Beth Protea.
From the day that Beth Protea opened, Keren Beth Protea has enabled many former Southern Africans living in Israel to spend their golden years in dignity in the serenity of our beautiful facility.
In order to ensure the continued ability of the Keren to support needy applicants, a large group of dedicated volunteers are involved in many fund raising activities both locally and abroad.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This program ensures that the admission policy is not built solely on the applicants financial ability. This is what distinguishes a community project such as Beth Protea from commercial, profit-motivated senior citizen facilities. Those who can afford to do so, pay in full, but assistance is available to ex-Southern Africans living in Israel who may require it.
This assistance is given in complete confidentiality by Keren Beth Protea, ensuring that each individual is equal – receiving the same services, enjoying the same facilities and living life to its fullest.
The total assistance given by Keren Beth Protea over the last 12 years is in excess of eight million Dollars.
