The DVI 35th Anniversary Gala was an enormous success thanks to you!  Throughout the years you have made it possible for us to give a beautiful gift to Jerusalem’s underserved children and youth–the gift of healthy smiles.

Thank you for opening your hearts to our worthy cause.  Peace starts with a smile and healthy smiles start with you!

The 2015 Trudi Birger Memorial Award recipients; The Manger Foundation, Paul Hinsch, Morton Charlestein (posthumously), Drs. Deborah Weisfuse and Robert Lipner, and Dr. Allen Finkelstein have made significant contributions of time and support to the DVI clinic for many years and for that we are eternally grateful.

Dr. John Bengtson (left), 19-time DVI Volunteer and Ms. Edlawit Agdea, his former patient, each receive a framed photo which was taken of them during Ms. Agdea’s treatment at DVI.  Dr. Roy Petel, General Director of the DVI Clinic had the honor of introducing them and giving the special gift, and all of us were moved by the connection they feel and which will undoubtedly last a lifetime.

Thank you for helping these special connections happen.  Our gratitude is beyond words but you can see it in our smiles!
