Zichron Menachem

Zichron Menachem was founded in 1990 in memory of young Menachem Ehrental, z”l, who spent his fifteen childhood years valiantly battling cancer. His parents and loved ones aspired to utilize their shared knowledge and experiences in order to benefit and ease the plight of other cancer-stricken children and their families.  Over the past two decades, scores of doctors, liberal-art professionals, public figures, Rabbinical authorities, and hundreds of volunteers have joined forces to create Zichron Menachem (literally: Menachem’s Memorial) into a powerhouse of courage, goodwill, and love.

Zichron Menachem is a non-profit organization that grants immediate, practical and long-term aid and solutions to young cancer patients from the moment of diagnosis and throughout their battle with illness, as well as physical and emotional support to parents and families throughout the long, excruciating ordeal.

In appreciation of its humanitarian endeavors, Zichron Menachem has been awarded the Israel Presidential Prize for Volunteers; Israel Prime Ministerial Child Protector Award; Israel Health Ministerial Prize for Volunteers; and the Mayor of Jerusalem’s Citation for Volunteers, among others.

Dedicated volunteers, assisted by a talented faculty of art and music professionals, dispense support to young cancer patients in hospitals and private homes from morning until night.
