Patt Neighborhood

In 1981, the Jerusalem Foundation, with the support of the Cukier, Goldstein-Goren Foundation, established a Park and Sports Center in the Patt Neighborhood. This project, dedicated to the memory of the late Bracha Goldstein, mother of Avram Goldstein-Goren, is located in the heart of the neighborhood. Covering 45 dunams (more than 11 acres), the Center includes a Jerusalem Pine grove, a children’s playground, football fields and basketball courts. Special lighting facilities enable night usage.

In 2005 the Foundation and the Jerusalem Foundation signed an agreement for a total renovation and improvement of the Bracha Goldstein Park. The beautiful new park was rededicated in the presence of numerous family members, in October 2007, as the Mama Betty Park and Sports Center, which is now adjacent to the Max Rayne School for bilingual education.


Family Day Care Center and Hostel for emotionally handicapped children

With assistance from the Cukier, Goldstein-Goren Foundation, the Jerusalem Foundation, set up a Family Day Care Center and Hostel for children whose handicaps stem from emotional problems. The Hostel, built in 1983, now houses eight girls aged 13-15 who study in a special education school. The Cukier, Goldstein-Goren Foundation’s financing was used to purchase, renovate and furnish the six-room apartment that houses the Hostel.
