Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Leon on Monday inaugurated the second center of the ‘New Home’ project in the N’vei Yaakov neighborhood of the northern capital.

In a moving ceremony held at the second New Home Center, Mayor Moshe Leon, Deputy Mayor Eliezer Ruchberger, and Councilman Aryeh King, who holds the community administrative portfolio, were present for the dedication of the second home that supports children with special needs and employs them regardless of religion, color or gender.
