A New School Year for Etai
In our January newsletter, we featured Etai Rimmel, who had been treated at ALYN Hospital for over a year after having been seriously injured in a car accident in which he lost his mother and sister. In November 2020, a year after the accident, he celebrated his Bar-Mitzvah. This fall, he is back at school at ALYN, and he is motivated to continue the hard work of rehabilitation, despite the difficulties and pain, so that he can soon rejoin his friends at his regular school.
