Azoory family dedicates special education kindergarten
In July 2019, we held a dedication ceremony at the Onn special education kindergarten, which the Foundation renovated with the support of a generous donation from Israeli donors, the Azoory family in on honor of their parents and grandparents, Ada and Noori Azoory. Mayor Ron Huldai spoke at the moving ceremony, a celebration of family and community, and a wonderful example of Tel Avivians giving back to their city. For so long, Israelis were only on the receiving end of philanthropy, but it is fantastic to see how local Tel Aviv philanthropy is becoming a growing phenomenon and helping to power the work of the Foundation.
The Onn kindergarten is a fully-equipped facility which caters to children with physical and developmental disabilities, including specially-designed classrooms and therapy spaces. One of its most exciting features is a simulated grocery shop, the items for which were made lovingly by the teachers, to help teach life skills.
