Acclaimed Parkinson’s Program   A young student of physiotherapy, with a true passion for helping others, took it all the way from A to Z, and launched a ground-breaking program for people with Parkinson’s, at the Daniel Rowing Centre in Tel Aviv.  Read all about it in Israel’s English Speaking Community Magazine, ESRA – click and go to page 29: http://en.calameo.com/read/0023729889d268fa466d7.

Heartwarming visits  Legendary Judoka Yael Arad, Israel’s first ever olympic medalist, expressed strong impressions from her tour at the Daniel Rowing Centre: “From a personal tragedy, you built a centre full of life, strengthening the values of excellence in sports”

Our founder, Mrs. Linda Streit, has also had the pleasure of hosting a delegation from the Women’s Giving Circle of Sarasota-Manatee, Florida. We have some potential rowers there!

Finally, we wish to thank you for making all this happen, through your kind and loving support, and for being with us every step of the way.

Wishing you a wonderful spring & a happy Passover!
