To support the rehabilitation of Israel’s wounded veterans and to improve their quality of life.
To be a national charity in the UK devoted to raising awareness and funds for Israel’s wounded veterans and victims of terror.
Beit Halochem literally means ‘House of Warriors’. It was established in the wake of the War of Independence (1949), with the purpose of providing the 3,400 soldiers disabled during the war with all their needs towards the long process of their rehabilitation. Today, more than 50,000 members are given a new lease of life at our facilities in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and Beer Sheva.
The four Beit Halochem centres boast an array of exceptional rehabilitative services including physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, chiropractic treatments conducted along-side a vast array of social, specialised sport options, educational programmes and cultural activities. Beit Halochem provides Israel’s wounded veterans with the opportunity to regain the dignity and quality of life they deserve. The centres serve as a place of comfort where members feel supported and are not alone. Beit Halochem UK recognises that the men and women of the Israel Defence Forces serve their country with courage and dedication. They are Israel’s first line of defence; a responsibility they face with inordinate bravery. The debt of gratitude that we in the wider Jewish world owe them is inestimable.
