    חלום של גן בבית חלומותי


    גן שיקומי – הגן המוגן

    ילד צעיר זקוק למסגרת הולמת ומתאימה להתפתחות תקינה מבחינת ידע, הפעלת חושים, חיי חברה, הנאות וחוויות.

    ילד שמתמודד עם מחלת הסרטן מנוע מלבקר במסגרות חינוכיות וחברתיות וזאת עקב הפגיעה במערכת החיסונית.

    בזכרון מנחם הרימו את הכפפה, בנינו לילדים הללו גן מוגן בו מבקרים אך ורק ילדים בתקופת הטיפולים האקטיבית ללא חשיפה לילדים בריאים.

    מסגרת זו מספקת לילד כל מה שילד רגיל מקבל בגן רגיל ובנוסף תוכנית שיקומית שלמעשה מונעת מנפילה והצורך לאחר ההבראה להמשיך במסגרת שיקומית.

    הגן המוגן השיקומי מובל ע"י גננת מוסמכת ומנוסה, מרפאה בעיסוק ופיזיותרפיסטית בכירה כאשר בנות השרות של זכרון מנחם שעוברות הכשרה מתאימה מלוות את הפרויקט.

    הגן המוגן השיקומי פועל בירושלים מזה עשרות שנים, לפני כ – 18 שנה הקצתה עיריית ירושלים לפרויקט זה מגרש במורדות בית וגן.

    Happiness in the hospital


    Support for children and parents

    At most hospitals around Israel, Zichron Menachem gives children receiving cancer treatment a break from pain and boredom. A regular feature on the children’s wards, we give the kids something to look forward to, including exciting activities, snack carts with ice cream sundaes and sushi, and much-needed personal attention. Zichron Menachem is one of the top three most-requested programmes for National Service recruits who spend much of their time with kids in hospital.

    Zichron Menachem also manages the blood components bank at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital.

    • Blood bank

      Blood components bank

      Organising donations
      Zichron Menachem manages the blood products bank at Hadassah Hospital. We ensure there are always enough blood products to meet patient’s needs. When supplies run short, we have a list of volunteers we can call on to come at a moment’s notice. This service saves the lives.
    • Sponsored rides

      Sponsored rides

      Making transport easy
      Parents often need to make regular trips to the hospital to either visit kids or bring them for treatment. We help make these journeys easier by providing rides in taxis. Paying attention to these small details means that parents have more time to spend taking care of their families rather than taking complicated journeys on public transit.
    • Treats and sweets

      Treats and sweets

      Delicious delights
      Zichron Menachem’s food carts bring kids ice cream, sushi and other delights while they are in hospital. These do more than raise the spirit. Kids who often have trouble eating and getting the nourishment they need excitedly dig-in to the treats on the trolly.
    • Kids activities

      Kids activities

      Keeping busy
      In hospital and away from the usual routine, kids face boredom and anxiety. Zichron Menachem brings a bit of fun to an otherwise difficult time. Volunteers run activities throughout the day, play with children individually, and make sure that kids minds and bodies are kept active.
    • Support for parents

      Support for parents

      Sharing the load
      The burden that rests on the shoulders of parents with a sick child is impossible to overstate. Zichron Menachem is there to help share the weight. We send volunteers to hospital to stay with their child while they go home for much-needed rest and to care for their other kids. We also send volunteers to their homes help with the myriad of tasks that often get neglected while they are busy in hospital.
    • Devoted volunteers

      Devoted volunteers

      Helping hands
      Our services depend on scores of dedicated volunteers. From running errands for parents to helping worried children laugh, our helpers are at the heart of our operation supporting parents and children during treatment.

A full medical team and mobile medical centre travels with Zichron Menachem, ensuring that children and young people can receive their full treatment during their time away.

    Parents recharge batteries

    Parents of children with cancer embrace life

    See these amazing people, here in these pictures? See their smiles? Any smile like this, on the face of a father or mother of a child with cancer is exciting in itself. We counted so many smiles like these during our parents' respite week in England last June.

    At Zichron Menachem, we know what it is like to be the parents of a sick child. We understand your worries, the fear, and the unbearable pain watching your child suffer. The total breakdown of routine, work, family, and more.

    The holiday camp in England was an opportunity to take 40 parents away from the pain that they experience on a daily basis.

    Rivka's story


    ""I returned feeling an inner energy, peace and strength."
     
     
    In addition to a rich program of trips and fun, our parents' respite week has a double therapeutic effect. Parents learn from others in a similar situation and recharge their batteries so they can return refreshed to deal with the challenges ahead.

    It starts with Chaim and Miri Erenthal, who are full of energy and strength. Every morning, everyone on the trip were asked to share something positive that happened to them. This focus on the positive helps these parents connect to each other and connect to life itself.

    The entire journey brings these parents together with unbelievable intensity. Each time, we are amazed to see how any differences between them are forgotten, and their experiences bind them. The deep connections they form help to heal each and every participant.

    What did we do?


    The local Jewish community open hearts

    What did we not do! Shopping, shows, culinary treats, and more. The mothers and fathers who came, some nervously, were able to truly relax so they could continue with the difficult road that lay ahead when they returned.

    The local Jewish community also opened their homes with open hearts. The parents were entertained and pampered.

    There is nothing like seeing a new the light in parents' eyes, to hear them laugh, talk and enjoy themselves, to feel their joy, strength and life. And to know that we have been privileged to be here with them and for them and to illuminate the way for them.

    support

    A helping hand


    Sharing the load

    When a child is sick, parents need extra support to cope with the myriad of tasks on their plate. Zichron Menachem is there to some of the load off. We know that when parents feel supported, they are able to care for their child with cancer more easily. This directly affects their child’s physical and emotional recovery from cancer.

    Our volunteers stay with children in hospital so parents can go home for much-needed rest. Big-brothers also help with the other kids in the family and National Service girls help ensure the house runs smoothly. Support for parents is support for the entire family.

    10800

    Since 1990 ZM has helped support 10,800 parents which has directly affected the ability of their children to recover

      Challah and flowers for Shabbat

      A healing touch
      Parents are often so busy taking care of the daily needs that they can forget the little touches that make a house a home. Each week, our volunteers bring challah and flowers to Zichron Menachem families, helping to bring Shabbat in on the right foot.
    • Family retreats

      Family retreats

      Fun for everyone

    • Parents respite

      Parents respite

      A needed break
      Parents caring for a child with cancer rarely have a moment to rest. Zichron Menachem’s respite trips provide parents with a much break. In addition to family weekends away in Israel throughout the year, we also take parents abroad. These trips give them an opportunity to reconnect with their spouse, and catch up on much-needed rest.
    • Support groups

      Support groups

      Stronger together
      Support groups help parents feel that they are not alone and that their challenges are not unique. These groups enable them to learn from the experiences of other parents in a similar situation. The groups also help ease the emotional burden placed on them when a child has cancer.
    • Counselling and therapy

      Counselling and therapy

      Healing for the soul
      Parents receive complementary one-to-one counselling from experienced mental health professionals. This extra support helps parents cope with the many emotional challenges they face when a child has cancer.

      Guidance for parents

      Knowledge is power
      When a child is diagnosed with cancer, parents often don’t know what to do first. Zichron Menachem helps parents navigate the many medical and social issues that come with a cancer diagnosis. Parent liaisons give parents answers to their many questions as well as an introduction to the many services Zichron Menachem provides.

    The Education

    and Guidance Center

    In Zichron Menachem we believe that dreams, do come true. We are currently working with a professional team on a unique and significant project: “The Education and Guidance Center” (EGC). After many years of experience with young cancer patients, their families and volunteers, we have understood the necessity of improving the general public’s awareness of cancers implications and the tools required to cope through the traumatic experience . The EGC will be more than a simple visitor information center. It will allow each audience – the patient’s families, our volunteers and the general public – to learn in its own way about the disease through an advanced, one of a kind multimedia experience.

    Healing the soul

    At the House of Dreams we support kids who struggle with cancer, along with their relatives, parents and siblings; providing much needed services.
    The garden has been landscaped with this approach in mind. After setting up our fishpond and greenhouse, it’s time for this final project — our petting zoo.
    In this magical space, surrounded by nature’s wonders, little furry friends await the kids, along with reptiles and winged creatures.
    Pet therapy has been proven to promote good health. Sick children react to animals, not only psychologically, but physiologically.
    Our therapeutic petting corner for children with cancer is an invaluable supplement to their treatment regimen.

    For families fighting cancer, feelings of stress and depression can become normal. Zichron Menachem’s events, trip and parties bring excitement and fun back into their lives.

    After Shabbat each week a singing and dancing squad of volunteers visits people in their homes, bringing joy along with them. Trips to ice skating and bowling give the kids regular events to look forward to, while the House of Dreams hosts regular parties to mark holidays and other special times. There’s never a dull moment with Zichron Menachem.

      School vacations and holidays are marked by more than the usual celebrations. Zichron Menachem’s trips, parties and events give our kids something to look forward to and fight for throughout the course of their treatment.

      For kids whose spirits need a boost during difficult times, Zichron Menachem is there to treat them to special outings and parties. And for those that maybe just want a quiet day at home after weeks in the hospital, we help make that possible too, with extra carers and medical professionals on hand.

    Wig & Beauty Parlor

    After providing solutions to those dealing with hair loss due to chemo., and having established an organized system of hair donation and collection points, we discovered another struggle that Israeli cancer patients face.
    Many sick girls ask where they can obtain a wig, and which professional hairstylist will cut it to flatter their face? They grapple with maintenance: How is it washed and how is it styled? Above all, they want to get professional service in a discreet setting.
    With this parlor, we provide Israeli cancer patients in with a new, vital service, offering a solution that conveys our understanding of another painful aspect of their struggle.

    The Chavruta Project


    Easily preventable. Difficult to fix.

    Many children from families with a cancer patient struggle with emotional and academic issues, which may lead them to abandon their roots. It often begins with the absence of routine or parental guidance, spiralling when an academic problem goes untreated, and is fed by the child anxieties, when he craves attention and understanding. These are vital conditions for the development of any child, and our aim is to help preserve them. A ‘Chavruta’ mentor is allocated to each child. Joint study makes friendships blossom, leading to heart-to-hearts, an understanding of the child’s needs and the provision of suitable support. This relationship is a stabilizing factor. It keeps the child socially secure, so that he will only grow from the challenge.

    Dream birthdays


    Making wishes come true

    Zichron Menachem pulls out all the stops to make birthdays particularly memorable for children and young adults with cancer. Marking another year of life, Zichron Menachem gives our kids the gifts and experiences of their dreams, whether they are at home or in the hospital.

    Kids have met their favourite football players and musicians, and had unforgettable days out on helicopter rides and in race cars. We treat young adults to an unforgettable night out with friends, and families get professional photographs to help them remember these important celebrations.

    A beacon of kindness

    A beacon of mercy, joy and strength

    This past Passover, Miri Ehrenthal got a surprise phone call she will never forget. She had been chosen from thousands of people across the State of Israel to light one of the torches at the national Independence Day ceremony.

    Zichron Menachem has received many awards in the past, including the President's Award, the Prime Minister's Prize, the Jerusalem Prize. But the lighting of the torch is one of the most significant recognitions by the state of Israel. Miri felt that this honour should be given to more than just her alone. "Why not Chaim?" she asked the person to called to tell her the news. "Or the two of us together?" "We want you to do it," they said.

    "The love and joy that the children give to the thousands of volunteers and therapists of Zichron Menachem are a source of strength for us all."
     
     
    "My feelings were very mixed," Miri says. "I saw a great opportunity to represent and elevate the entire religious-Haredi community, to show off its amazing contribution.

    This was also a great opportunity to recognize the thousands of good people we meet through Zichron Menachem - all true partners. How could I not take advantage of this amazing opportunity to give thanks to all those wonderful people?!”

    For God's sake


    Feeling the great obligation

    Miri prayed that she wouldn’t be affected negatively by the honour, that she shouldn’t feel too much pride. She rehearsed for the ceremony for three days with the other torch lighters, during which they took photos along the walls of Jerusalem, practiced reading their speeches and met with senior officials, including the prime minister and his wife, Israel’s minister of culture, and more.

    “They told us that we were chosen from thousands of nominees, "Miri says. "I felt that if that were the case, then it was my great obligation to represent Zichron Menachem."

    At the ceremony, Miri was visibly restrained. "That’s the only way I could have the strength to stand there," she said. In her speech, Miri thanked the many young people who chose to do their National Service with Zichron Menachem, calling them soldiers of kindness. But the intensity of her words and their meaning was electrifying.

    With three more medals for Zichron Menachem, and much meaningful encouragement from people around the country, she returned home, where much of her inspiring work takes place, and where she motivates, and gives joy and hope to thousands of others.

              camps

              Fun for all


              From illness to joy

              Zichron Menachem’s camps and retreats offer children with cancer a chance to recharge their physical and emotional batteries, and escape the challenges and worries they face during treatment. Our camps are more than a fun getaway. Away from home, the children – some of whom are taken straight from the hospital to camp – can fully relax and forget about their illness, while bonding with other kids in a similar situation.

              Accompanied by a full medical team, the children’s physical and emotional needs are catered for, from blood tests and their regular medications to psychological support. Campers return home with increased confidence and a renewed determination to fight their illness.

                A chance to breathe

                Back to normality
                When someone in the family is sick, the entire family is affected. The physical and emotional intensity, together with long periods of treatment, can take a toll on everyone. When parents entrust their children to us, and our skilled medical teams, they get a long-awaited opportunity to unwind.
              • Seasonal camps

                Seasonal camps

                A much-needed break
                We run three holiday camps a year – in the winter, spring and summer – so it’s never too long before kids with cancer and their siblings can return to days of fun and nights of laughter.

                These camps give kids a break from anxiety and reinforce a sense of optimism for the future.
              • Empowering kids

                Empowering kids

                Awakening their thirst for life
                Cancer patients often feel they have lost themselves, their personality and their dignity while they go through treatment. They sometimes even lose the will to live. With activities from morning until night, along with adventures, parties, singing and more, our camps awaken their senses and give them back their thirst for life.
              • Counselling and support

                Counselling and support

                Healing for the soul
                When kids get a chance to be with others in a similar situation they are able to support each other. Mental health professionals are on hand for one-to-one sessions as well as group therapy.
              • Adventure outings and events

                Daily excursions

                Rediscovering life
                From trips to adventure parks to barbecues with dancing and magic shows, kids on our camps are treated to daily – and nightly – so they can rediscover life without worry.
              • Mobile hospital

                Mobile hospital

                Accompany them at all times
                Our on-site portable hospital is fully equipped with advanced medical equipment and prepared to deal with the patients’ needs at all times.

                Oncologists, psychologists and nurses ensure the children’s physical and emotional welfare and accompany them on all their outings.

              Our passion


              Why we’re here

              Zichron Menachem provides support for any young person in Israel under the age of 25 living with cancer, as well as their parents and siblings.

              Families of all religions and backgrounds turn to Zichron Menachem for the help they need most, be it information, a second opinion from our “clinic of hope”, or a break from the punishing routine of medical appointments.

              Zichron Menachem works closely with Israel’s leading medical professionals, who strongly believe that no child can be treated comprehensively without the support we provide.

              Our inspiration


              Why we were founded

              Zichron Menachem was founded in 1990 by Chaim and Miri Ehrental after their oldest child, Menachem, died of leukaemia at the age of 15. Diagnosed at the age of 2, the Ehrentals soon realised there were few places they could turn for support. Zichron Menachem was created to change this.

              Zichron Menachem has developed into Israel’s leading provider of support services to children with cancer and their families. Chaim and Miri use their expertise daily and have changed the lives of thousands of families.

              Easily preventable. Difficult to fix.

              Many children from families with a cancer patient struggle with emotional and academic issues, which may lead them to abandon their roots. It often begins with the absence of routine or parental guidance, spiralling when an academic problem goes untreated, and is fed by the child anxieties, when he craves attention and understanding. These are vital conditions for the development of any child, and our aim is to help preserve them. A ‘Chavruta’ mentor is allocated to each child. Joint study makes friendships blossom, leading to heart-to-hearts, an understanding of the child’s needs and the provision of suitable support. This relationship is a stabilizing factor. It keeps the child socially secure, so that he will only grow from the challenge.

              המציאות העצובה היא שילדים רבים שמשפחתם מטופלת בחולה סרטן, מגיעים לקשיים רגשיים, לימודיים ובעקבות כך - אף לנשירה. זה מתחיל בהיעדרם של סדר יום עקבי ושל נוכחות הורית מסודרת, מעמיק כאשר נוצר פער לימודי זעיר שאינו מטופל, ומוזן מדאגות ופחדי הילד, לצד הצורך הנואש שלו בתשומת לב ובאוזן קשבת.
              את התנאים הפשוטים הללו, שילד רגיל צריך כדי להשאר רגיל, אנו חשים שליחות בוערת לשמר. במסגרת 'חברותא' מוצמד חונך אישי לכל ילד. על רקע הלמידה המשותפת נוצר ביניהם קשר אישי וחם, שמוביל לשיחות נפש, להבנת צרכי הילד ולמתן עזרה מתאימה. הקשר יוצק תחושת יציבות וקיום שחיונית לילד בתקופה מבהילה זו בחייו, ומאפשר לו להאחז במשפחה ובקהילה ולעבור בשלום את התקופה הקשה.

              Wig & Beauty Parlor

              After providing solutions to those dealing with hair loss due to chemo., and having established an organized system of hair donation and collection points, we discovered another struggle that Israeli cancer patients face.
              Many sick girls ask where they can obtain a wig, and which professional hairstylist will cut it to flatter their face? They grapple with maintenance: How is it washed and how is it styled? Above all, they want to get professional service in a discreet setting.
              With this parlor, we provide Israeli cancer patients in with a new, vital service, offering a solution that conveys our understanding of another painful aspect of their struggle.

              Healing the soul

              At the House of Dreams we support kids who struggle with cancer, along with their relatives, parents and siblings; providing much needed services.
              The garden has been landscaped with this approach in mind. After setting up our fishpond and greenhouse, it’s time for this final project — our petting zoo.
              In this magical space, surrounded by nature’s wonders, little furry friends await the kids, along with reptiles and winged creatures.
              Pet therapy has been proven to promote good health. Sick children react to animals, not only psychologically, but physiologically.
              Our therapeutic petting corner for children with cancer is an invaluable supplement to their treatment regimen.

              בבית חלומותי אנו מעניקים את מעגל התמיכה, הכלים והשרותים לילדים ולנוער המתמודדים עם מחלת הסרטן, ולבני משפחותיהם, ההורים והאחאים.

              גינת המקום עוצבה מתוך אותה גישה הוליסטית ואקולוגית. אחרי בריכת דגי הקוי והחממה הטיפולית, הגיע תורו של החלק האחרון – פינת חי טיפולית.

              בתוך כל המרחב הנפלא הזה, כשהם מוקפים בקסמי הטבע, ממתינות לילדים חיות קטנות ואהובות: זוחלים, פרוותיים ובעלי כנף.
