Colel Chabad fills the gaps for Israel's poor.
The Grabski Multiple Sclerosis Center
Colel Chabad’s in/outpatient center for victims of Multiple Sclerosis is the only one of its kind in Israel to serve the needs of victims of this terrible degenerative illness. It is also one of the cutting edge institutions of its kind in the world, one that is carefully monitored and emulated by similar institutions worldwide.
MS is a disease of the nervous system that strikes adults in the early prime of their lives, ultimately leaving them totally paralyzed without affecting their intelligence or ability to think or be creative.
The Finger Residence Hall
Owing to its pioneering success, a second Colel Chabad center has been constructed with a campus situated in the heart of Jerusalem. The new center cares for both, MS victims and victims of other neurological illnesses.
