Dear Friends,

We are excited to share with you news of an exciting development. For the first time AKIM Jerusalem’s artists have been invited to participate in the Jerusalem Biennale , an international celebration of contemporary Jewish art.
Under the guidance of workshop facilitator Moti Yifrach, our artists - Eliezer, Shmuel, Racheli, Yevgeni, Nisan, Shlomo, Uriel, Moshe, Pirchia, Avner, Hana, Shalom, Yael and Tamar - are preparing enthusiastically to represent AKIM Jerusalem at this prestigious event. They have chosen, as their inspiration, figures from the history of art .
For AKIM Jerusalem, the invitation to participate in the Biennale constitutes recognition that people with intellectual disabilities have so much more to contribute when they create art that inspires and stimulates the senses.

Improving the quality of their lives is a fundamental principle and objective underlying all of the activities and programs that we, at AKIM Jerusalem, operate for our beneficiaries. Art is one of the most effective means to build their sense of self-worth and achievement. At the same time, it is truly an enjoyable leisure time activity!
You now have the opportunity to become partners in this wonderful breakthrough.
The art workshop can function and thrive only through the generosity of our supporters.
It is our hope that, for the coming year, you will become a ‘patron’, ‘curator’ or ‘sponsor’ of our remarkable artists.

Thank you for your support
Efrat Wagner
Director of Resource Development

AKIM-Jerusalem is an Israeli nonprofit founded in 1951, with a wealth of experience in assisting individuals and families of individuals with intellectual disabilities.Its mission is to develop, advance, and improve the quality of life for Jerusalem's intellectually challenged youth and adults. AKIM-Jerusalem offers comprehensive leisure activities, vocational training, therapeutic and residential services to 160 residents and some 200 families in the community. Serving people of all ages and levels of functioning, the organization is run by professionals and a board make up of parents, and public representatives. Whereas most organizations work with specific age groups, AKIM-Jerusalem is an ongoing presence in the lives of its members, from childhood to old age. Being a lifelong service provider enables AKIM-Jerusalem to observe, assess, and tailor programs and services which appropriately address individual and communal needs.
Its principal services include: (1) a Family Support Center, which addresses the needs of 200 families that care for a child or an adult with intellectual disabilities living at home. (2) Residential Services-independent living apartment and hostel facilities. (3) Leisure/Social Platforms-activities that allow for creative expression, life skills acquisition, and socialization. AKIM-Jerusalem receives financial support from the Ministry of Social Affairs and Social Services, but requires further philanthropic support to meet the growing needs of the different age groups it serves.
