To provide a body, mind and soul healing respite for cancer patients and their family through community giving.


Refanah Healing Holidays, founded in 2014,  provides a unique and vital service for cancer patients and their family – a brief private respite in holiday units throughout Israel. A restorative time together to enjoy, relax, and create unforgettable memories.
We do this by facilitating community giving, reaching out and convincing Israeli hotel, B&B and guesthouse proprietors to donate the sleeping accommodations on the basis of availability, taking advantage of an underutilized in-kind resource for the benefit of those in need.
Hospitals, HMO's, nurses, social workers, The Cancer Association Bituach Leumi, and others, all refer oncology patients to Refanah for a Healing Holiday.
