Wheelchair and special needs accessibility in Israel:
Many people dream their whole lives of visiting Israel and seeing its unique sites. However, many people are stressed about traveling with someone who is in a wheelchair or has special needs because they are concerned about the trip is extremely limited.
The ideal vacation when traveling with someone who is disabled is to find a place that is sensitive towards the disabled and has facilities that will help ease the struggle so that the family may enjoy a fun and stress-free vacation.
Israel has many beautiful sites that are unlike any others in the world. For example the Jerusalem Western Wall, the Dead Sea, and Masada. Many of these sites are ancient and weren’t built for wheels (whether it is a wheelchair, grocery cart, or a stroller). Modern Israel has gone to great lengths to ensure that everyone can enjoy the sites. For example, The old city in Jerusalem has a project that is building handrails all over- in order to help the disabled. The streets have more ramps leading to sidewalks. Many nature reserves and hikes are becoming accessible towards people with special needs. There are also many organizations that have private tours and trips, specifically for people in wheelchairs. In addition, there are many organizations that help the disabled with personalized assistance and equipment.
Here at EMA Care, we have helped tourists with their accommodations, from physical therapy to personal trainers, to dialysis. We have many resources to offer tourists:
EMA Care will ensure that you receive all of the help you need to enjoy a stress-free and successful trip to Israel.
So, when you’re planning a trip to Israel, have no fear because we at EMA Care can help you with all of your needs. This will allow you and your family to have a fun and stress-free vacation to Israel.
EMA Care wishes you a wonderful vacation!
My experience with Ema Care has been so positive that I wanted to share it in case it could help someone else. Eight days ago my daughter, a Shanah Bet student, called to say she wasn’t feeling well and had symptoms of Covid-19. I was put in touch with an Infectious Disease specialist who recommended Ema Care. I reached Dr. Eliana Aaron easily and signed my daughter up. The next morning, Ema Care gave my daughter a telehealth exam and provided her with prescriptions, as well as a list of...
I would like to also add my compliments, you exceeded my already very high expectations. You can certainly send other schools our way for a recommendation.

Dear Dr. Eliana words simply cannot express how much you have done for all of us and so many others in keeping us informed, calming anxieties, and being such a wonderful and patient resource through such a difficult time. Wishing you much bracha and hatzlacha in the merit of all the countless mitzvot u have done to help so many through these trying times; mikol halev, ein milim and thanks so so much .

Hello Dr. Aaron. I cannot thank you enough for providing not only crucial information but a framework that gave us stability and allowed us to function (instead of descending into chaos, which undoubtedly would have happened, if not for you). At the risk of waxing dramatic, I will tell you that when I think of what you've done these past couple of months, what comes to mind is Rav Yohanan Ben Zakai asking Vespasian to give him Yavneh ve-Hakhameha, thus saving the entire enterprise of Talmud...
I just wanted to say I think Dr. Eliana is one of the most rationale people providing the public with current information. I have no idea how I came across your Facebook page but I love what you say, just heard the one about reopening shuls, and the way you present it. clear, concise and factual. I work in Toronto on COVID 19 and just wanted to let you know that you are doing a fantastic job. I think here there are community doctors putting out information and I have told them they are too...
I just wanted to thank you very much for that presentation. Very thorough and certainly helped create important and necessary focus. Very much appreciated.
