About the initiative

Every year, thousands of people around the world dream about coming to Jerusalem to put their notes in the Western Wall. But for many reasons, not everyone can get all the way to Jerusalem.
We print out your notes twice monthly so that children and youths from Jerusalem with disabilities can go together and put them on the Western Wall. They’re placed in between the ancient stones of the Temple. Your privacy is protected at all times.
Proceeds from this initiative contribute to vital programs at Shalva, the Israeli Association for the Care and Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities.

Our initiatives are driven by the belief that children with disabilities should be raised by their empowered families and embraced by a wholesome and inclusive community. The programs offered by Shalva offer a host of therapies on an ongoing basis, inclusive of educational frameworks, sports and wellness, recreational activities, and respite and family support. The programs encourage the children to reach their full individual potential.
