Ohr Yerushalayim's six piece band visits numerous hospitals for the mentally challenged throughout Israel once a month. People who are depressed are eager to be revived by the music and dancing. Even the staff members of the hospitals eagerly await Ohr Yerushalayim's band, as it lifts their spirits as well. During these visits, the volunteers offer refreshments and drinks to the patients and medical staff of the hospital. The patients sing, dance and communicate. These regular visits create a lasting relationship between the patients and the staff of Ohr Yerushalayim. Speak to many ex-patients who are now functioning in society; they will tell you that they began their first steps to rehabilitation by hearing the music of the Ohr Yerushalayim band.
