About Yad LaKashish
Since 1962, Yad LaKashish has provided creative work opportunities for thousands of Jerusalem’s most deserving elderly residents. 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. 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 the Yad LaKashish gift shop, the proceeds of which are invested back into the Yad Lakashish operation. For this day only, many of these gift items will be available for purchase at Gratz.
