: Everyone loves to have a daily cup of coffee! And many people, especially in Israel, like to have it in a coffeehouse that they love.
Israel is filled with coffeehouses, but there this one is extra special: the Nagish Café in the town of Ramat Yishai in northern Israel. What makes it special is that it is accessible to people of all disabilities, from wheelchair-bound people to the blind and to those who are hard of hearing.
An even more amazing aspect of Nagish Café is the fact that it is run entirely by handicapped people.
“First of all, the café gives the employees the feeling of getting up in the morning and having something to do, that society hasn’t forgotten them,” Yehudit Zamir, co-founder of Nagish Café, told Arutz Sheva.
“There are people that, without this place, will not be accepted to work by anyone,” she added. “I can speak about myself. I have Multiple Sclerosis. I’m a kindergarten teacher and the work force couldn’t accept me anymore because after a certain hour I can’t speak, I can’t function. No job can hold on to me. But here they take my needs into account. That’s what is important to me and in addition I feel that I can serve the people who come here.”
Zamir noted that in the Nagish Café, “food is served slowly and with love.” The café’s motto is that tasty food is served slowly.
