In 2020 The Jeff Astor Foundation donated an assortment of motivating and therapeutic toys and games for physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and hydrotherapy to the ALYN Hospital in Jerusalem.
After we made our contribution to ALYN Hospital we learned that Jeff visited ALYN Hospital in the summer of 1984 with his Kol Emeth USY group and had the opportunity to play basketball with children confined to wheelchairs. This new information made our donation even more meaningful.
