About Us

The Israeli Wounded Veterans Organization is the west coast chapter partner organization of Beit Halochem, a registered non-profit organization, established in the wake of the War of Independence (1949), with the purpose of providing the 3,400 disabled veterans from this war with all their needs towards the long process of their rehabilitation. It is the only organization legally responsible for representing those veterans wounded and disabled while serving in defense of the State of Israel.

The 54,000 members wounded and disabled while fighting in defense of the State of Israel are only part of the heavy price our young nation has had to pay for its independence and survival. Following the intensive ongoing combat and counter-terrorist activity carried out daily to safeguard Israel’s independence. Several hundred new members join the ranks of the organization annually.

Our Mission

Our mission is to support the rehabilitation, rebuilding, and enhancement of the lives of disabled Israeli veterans and victims of terror. At our state-of-the-art Beit Halochem (House of the Warriors) rehabilitation centers in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem, and Beer Sheva, we serve more than 54,000 disabled veterans, terror attack survivors, and family members. Our commitment is to raising awareness and funds for a broad range of social, cultural, and sports training programs, offering scholarships, developing new initiatives, and providing specialized adapted equipment for our centers. Through these programs, we aim to empower these heroic men and women to rebuild their lives with a renewed sense of purpose and dignity.

We recognize the immense sacrifices made by these brave individuals who have served and protected the state of Israel, and we are honored to provide them with the support they need. Our centers offer a wide range of services and activities, including occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy, as well as sports and recreational facilities, cultural and educational programs, scholarship support, and family-oriented activities.

We work in cooperation with the Zahal Disabled Veterans Organization (ZDVO), which was established in 1949 in the wake of the War of Independence. Our partnership with ZDVO enables us to provide a comprehensive support system for Israeli disabled veterans and victims of terror.

We are proud to celebrate and honor those who protect and serve Israel, and we are committed to ensuring that our programs and opportunities at Beit Halochem are fully funded to help those who have sacrificed so much. By offering specialized therapies, training programs, and unique opportunities, we strive to ensure that our members are given the best chance to rebuild their lives and find a sense of purpose after their service to the country.

Our help is critical to support and improve the lives of disabled Israeli veterans and victims of terror. Our commitment to empowering these individuals and providing them with the support they need to rebuild their lives is unwavering, and we will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that our programs and opportunities at Beit Halochem are fully funded and accessible to those who need them.
