Ezrat Avot was founded by Rabbi Shlomo Gamliel who made Aliyah to Israel with the “Magic Carpet” operation. At the age of 106, seeing all the sorrows and poverty from which his neighbors suffered, he decided to open a soup kitchen in his own home.
His granddaughter, Naomi Sharabi was his faithful helper in preparing and serving the meals and in organizing programs for the elderly.
As time passed and the news about this small center spread, more and more elderly from different neighborhoods began to attend, additional space was therefore required to accommodate this growth.
In 1976 the organization Ezrat Avot – a nonprofit was officially founded.
Throughout the four decades since its founding Naomi Sharabi has served as the Executive Director of Ezrat Avot as was her grandfather’s wish.

Driving from Jerusalem to Ramot on Golda Meir turn right onto Shivat Tzion and then turn left at the first roundabout which is Hakisufim. Parking will be available on both sides of the street.
Walk on the side of the street without the apartments. There will be a building under construction on the corner, then a schoolyard playground, a Beit Kenesset, a large green dumpster, and then a school.
Walk to the entrance of the school where you will see a large white sign for Ohr Torah Stone above the metal fence. Just after this sign is a brick pathway on your left. There is a blue handrail on the path. Turn down the pathway and follow this around as it bends to the right. On your left will be a metal fence with a gate to the entrance of Ezrat Avot. There is a garden in front. If you walk to another playground and stores you have passed the entrance.
