Lehosheet Yad, literally meaning to ‘extend a hand’, takes the idea of ‘giving’ to a whole new level. With the mother organization based in Israel, Lehosheet Yad promises a glimmer of happiness and joy for those children stricken with cancer all around Israel.

In LA, Lehosheet Yad is under the auspices of Chabad of North Hollywood. Our goal is to provide a measure of normality and a reprieve from the grueling treatment and endless suffering that these children go through on a day to day basis. The children are brought to the United States and treated to a whirlwind vacation packed with activities and trips that most regular children can only dream of.


Chaperoned carefully by a team of pediatric oncologists to ensure the health and safety of the children, the group are taken to some of the most popular LA attractions. Destinations include Disneyland, Universal Studios, San Diego and Las Vegas. Counselors recruited from the local surrounding communities spearhead the exciting atmosphere and provide a constant ambiance of positive energy and ludicrous fun.

The children are put up in hotels by Chabad of North Hollywood and also have transportation as fitting to their needs, provided.

The highlight of the trip is a grand banquet, where the children and the supporters enjoy an evening of meaning and inspiration. As children who go through trials and tribulations far beyond their age and comfort, the sheer exhilaration of experiencing a trip like this one is a welcome distraction from their turbulent life and is something that will leave them with lifelong memories and a warm glow in their brave little hearts.
