Featured story on Arutz 7, Gila Gamliel, MK for Social Equality, came to visit Sulam’s main headquarters, to see the professional opportunities provided to the ultra-Orthodox women who are employed in Sulam’s therapeutic daycare. With hundreds of women employed by Sulam, both on the administrative and non-administrative level, Sulam is a trailblazer in the ultra-Orthodox world, providing both training and practical opportunities for women to give children with special needs the unique intervention that they deserve. Gamliel was given a VIP tour of the facilities, including the hydrotherapy pool and the media room, where children with autism use iPads to improve language and communication skills. Gamliel was told of the new and incredible initiative at Sulam, a support group for mothers of children with special needs, a group consisting of women from the entire spectrum of religious practice. This unique group retains its participants at a rate of 100%, providing endless emotional support for mothers who are faced with challenges, which can be incredibly lonely and painful. Sulam’s support group provides these women with a safe space, a place for sharing, venting, and providing mutual support and resources. Gamliel stated, “The fact that a small group of ultra-Orthodox women alone manage an organization that employs hundreds of workers and provides therapeutic services to hundreds of children, is a striking testament to the social changes in the ultra-Orthodox sector.” She also expressed her commitment to continual work together to facilitate funding and support for Sulam’s growth. Sulam currently has 587 infants and toddlers in 71 classrooms in 12 different therapeutic daycares throughout the country. 624 women work tirelessly to ensure that the services that Sulam provides are professional and top-quality.
