The thirty-year-old organization out of Israel is dedicated to providing transformative care for individuals with disabilities, empowering their families and promoting social inclusion.
Shalva supports and enables families to raise their children with disabilities within the family framework, partnering with government, academic and philanthropic institutions in advocacy efforts to create a more inclusive society for nearly three decades.
Held at the newly opened CMX Theater at Brickell City Centre, James Jackson from the City of Miami awarded the esteemed organization founder, Rabbi Kalman Samuels with an honorary proclamation, declaring November 9 as the dedicated day for Shalva followed by an inspiring presentation and speech on elevating the Israeli community and beyond.
Guests then enjoyed delicious kosher sushi and desserts.
