Bell learns Torah in Ramat Bet
Shemesh's Kollel Bais Tzvi in the morn-
ings and evenings. In between, he mans
the only English-speaking crisis hotline
in Israel at an organization called Mi'Lev
(From the Heart). A crisis-counseling
course he took at Jerusalem's Shaarey
Zedek Hospital two years ago taught
him the requisite skills.
He also helps run Le'Maan Achai (For
the Sake of My Brothers), an organiza-
tion that supports needy families, not
with cash donations but, Bell explains,
"with all aspects of social welfare: free
dental care, psychological counseling,
home economics education, job train-
ing. The goal is to take people out of the
cycle of poverty."
The Bells were in Detroit this past
summer, visiting parents Allen and
Gloria Bell of Oak Park, and Eugene
and Cherna Kowalsky of Southfield.
While here, Bell collected funds on
behalf of Le'Maan Achai to buy an
ambulance for Ramat Bet Shemesh.
"I'm really proud that he took his dis-
ability and turned it into an ability
the ability to help others," Lisa says.
Their children — Shosharia, 14,
Miriam, 12, Shimon, 10, Moshe, 8,
Frayda Baila, 5, and Israeli-born toddler
Ariella Meira — all have adjusted to life
in Israel. "The kids all feel comfortable
there," their mother says. "It's really our
place. We can have a normal life there.
It's a dream come true."
"We're seeing our kids grow as Jews in
a way that would never happen in
America," Bell says. "We're part of
Jewish history living in Israel today. Its
almost worth losing my sight to be part
of it." 0
