The Aleh organization was founded by an Israeli army officer, Major General (res.) Doron Almog.
His military CV is unquestionably one of a modern Macabee. From the famed Entebee raid in 1976, to strikes on the terrorists who murdered Israeli Olympians in Munich, to dangerous missions in Lebanon, and participating in the airlift rescue of Ethiopian Jews, Almog has a Jewish fighting spirit.
Yet, his experience having a son (who recently passed away) with multiple disabilities inspired him to establish a place where young people with exceptionally complex medical and cognitive challenges could be safe and thrive, regardless of their religion, nationality, background or socio-economic status.
The warrior with the heart of gold made it his life’s goal to improve the lives of the disabled young.
