Melabev Beit Shemesh is a program that I was afraid to join but did so at my wife's urging. I had had a bad experience with a similar center in Teaneck, New Jersey. She convinced me to try it and it was the right decision for me. I now attend 4 days a week and love it!! A big factor is the staff led by Shoshana Lichtman. The others who have made a difference are Red,Yehudis,Rachel, Linda,and Miss Yoga. I really like the place and would suggest anyone who might be interested to check it out.

Great breakfasts! Great staff! Love yoga and parashat shavuah led by Rabbi Siegel. Fun scrabble games!

Going to Melabev lifts my spirits. It is really a good discipline for me. It gives me a reason to get up each morning, to get dressed and to get out of the house and at the same time it gives my family some time without me around!! If I didn't go to the club, I would be bored at home with not much to do and would be noshing all day unnecessarily. I have made many friends at our English Speaking Melabev Club and look forward to socializing with them on a regular basis. It's good to know that there are people who share some of my day to day experiences and can sympathise with me about the trials of getting older. Everyone around has a smile on their face. The activities are varied and interesting, ranging from daily exercises to gardening therapy and music, as well as arts and crafts, discussions of current events and mind stretching word games. These activities enrich all of us and even at our age, we learn something new (almost) every day. The staff are outstanding and very professional and respect us and our needs. They understand elderly people and encourage our interaction. I am so glad that I am a member of Melabev.
