Dental Volunteers for Israel (DVI) operates a free dental clinic in Jerusalem for disadvantaged children and youth-at-risk. Children treated at the clinic range from 4 to 26 years old and come from all the diverse backgrounds represented in Jerusalem, including Ethiopian, Palestinian, Ultra-Orthodox and Secular Jewish Israeli children and youth. The children receive all the necessary preventative and restorative dentistry which they would not otherwise be able to afford. DVI never requests payment for any treatment. Mrs. Trudi Birger, a Holocaust survivor, who saw children’s care as her goal in life, established DVI in 1980. The clinic is operated by dentists from around the world who volunteer for periods of 1 – 2 weeks. D.V.I. treats some 50 poor children per day, most of whom are arriving for the first time in their life to a dentist, and some are even in their teens. They receive their first toothbrush and learn how to keep their teeth healthy throughout their lifetime. Dental Volunteers for Israel is proud to be a unique organization providing approx. 1,000 free treatments monthly.
We also provide free dentures to Holocaust Survivors and needy elderly aged 71+.
ELI’s mission is to protect Israel’s children and break the intergenerational cycle of abuse through a broad spectrum of services, including crisis intervention, emergency hot line, therapy, prevention programs in schools, professional education, and community awareness.
To advance this mission and have maximal impact, ELI offers services at a single point-of-entry, creating a large safety net that reduces the possibility of clients’ missing potential benefits. ELI tailors services to meet the cultural diversity within Israel, thus working with Arab, Ethiopian and other new immigrant communities, Ultra-Orthodox, special-needs populations and others. The organization provides therapy in a user-friendly manner, through a satellite system of therapists who cover a wide geographic area plus a mobile therapy unit which travels to wherever it is needed. ELI importantly invests in preventive education that includes teaching parenting skills in order to break the intergenerational cycle of abuse.
In the past year, ELI provided therapy to 4,000 children, in addition to thousands more parents and siblings, and handled 7,200 calls from abused children and/or families. No other agency in Israel focuses solely and specifically on the unique issues and methodologies for preventing and treating child abuse.

Gift of Life facilitates bone marrow, blood stem cell, and cord blood transplants for children and adults suffering from life-threatening illnesses. Since tissue type is inherited, a patient’s best chance of finding a genetic match lies with donors of similar ethnicity. Gift of Life strives to increase the representation of Jewish donors in the registry in order to overcome the devastating effects of the Holocaust, which severed bloodlines and made the donor search particularly difficult for Jewish patients needing transplants.
