Etta Israel Center’s 11th Annual Dessert Reception took place recently in Los Angeles. Etta Israel’s well-respected programs include the Ner Yaakov class for boys with learning disabilities, founded in memory of Aharon Yaakov Kornwasser, z”l, and the Ner Shoshana class, founded in memory of Shoshana Hayman Greenbaum, Hy”d.

Etta Israel creates programs and services that help Jewish adults achieve inclusion and integration into the mainstream Jewish community. It works to raise community awareness and sensitivity toward people with special needs by providing the full spectrum of services for Jewish adults with special needs: residential, educational, and social. Etta Israel strives to help members of all ages of the special-needs community achieve greater independence. Its work has provided inspiration to the Jewish community at large.
