About The Israel ParaSport Center
The Israel ParaSport Center, formerly the Israel Sport Center for the Disabled, is one of the world pioneers in the field of sport rehabilitation. Founded in 1960, The Center is a home away from home to around 2,500 Israelis of all ages, where the unique merits of sports are utilized to strengthen body, spirit, and mind. Sports activities contribute more to the confidence, morale, and self-image of those with disabilities than any other form of rehabilitation. Today, Center athletes participate in 18 different sports activities without discrimination on the basis of gender, religion, race, nationality, or ethnicity.
Our competitive and Paralympic sports division is one of the most successful in the world, with athletes competing in more than 20 disciplines, receiving hundreds of Paralympic, European, and World Championship titles throughout the years.
In the last several years, The Center has grown more visible around the US and abroad. We now have Friends Committees across the country and in the UK.
