I first came to Israel in 2007 and joined the kindergarten staff as a volunteer. I was warmly received by the staff and over time I joined to work as a full time assistant. A year later I immigrated to Israel and I see my future here in Israel. I realized that Israeli society respects the visually impaired and I am optimistic about my ability to learn and develop in Israel in the future.
In my role as an assistant, I can help children in kindergarten who have a disability similar to mine. This work gives me great satisfaction and enjoyment. In my work in the baby group, I have the opportunity to strengthen the mothers who are at the beginning of their journey and to be a model for the possibility.
To succeed and function despite the visual impairment. In my conversations with parents, I emphasize the importance of giving their children the sense of security and independence they need in order to be able to face the challenges that await them independently in the future.
I am happy to live in Israel and to be part of the Elia family.
Shula Alush – cook
Shula immigrated from Morocco in 69. She has five precious daughters, 3 grandchildren and a fourth daughter on the way.
The affair with Elia began 12 years ago (with the opening of the branch in B.S.).
"When I went in the children were asleep, chairs and various accessories were scattered throughout the room, I felt a pinch in my heart, they touched my heart." Shula broke her promise to herself, not to engage in the cooking and kitchen business but was captivated by their charm "I felt I wanted to cook for them, my great satisfaction to see them having fun and getting fat"
"Since I feel like it's my second home, my fun is in my contribution to the place."
Shorten the sheet and the words are poor in describing our kit much to Shula's work. The heart of the garden is the kitchen and not only because it provides healthy, nutritious and pampering food made out of dedication and a great love for everyone but also because Shula's warm and tender personality touches us all.
If you want, a good meal for Friday and Saturday, Shula will always know how to offer recipes that your guests will come out admiring from a meal you have prepared. Parents of children call to ask about a recipe that the child particularly liked.
Looking for a needle, battery, handcuffs, flashlight, paracetamol pill, heated pad for a busy back you will find at Shula.
Proverbs that are common in her mouth and give us so much confidence when we ask for something from Shula, she answers: "10 shekels," "Shula in the field, don't be tense."
Dear Shula, we love and cherish you and your work, years of health and peace from those around you.
