Migdal Or is a multi-service center dedicated to advancing people with blindness or visual impairment towards independent functioning and inclusion in the workplace. Active in Israel for over 50 years, Migdal Or today operates out of a head office in Haifa and branches in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Be'er Sheva.

Migdal Or is a project of the Northern Goals Association, which was founded by the Rashi Foundation. Most of Migdal Or's services are funded by the Ministry of Welfare and Social Affairs' Service for the Blind, the National Insurance Institute and the Ministry of Defense. We serve people who have an Israeli certification of blindness, as well as those without certification whose low vision impinges on daily functioning.

Migdal Or operates a wide continuum of programs all over Israel, delivering coordinated services in our regional branch offices and in the homes and daily environment of clients.

Every year, around 3,000 individuals of all ages and from all sectors and backgrounds benefit from this unique service-continuum. Clients receive individualized training and instruction, while the circles in which they live, work and study are also included in Migdal Or's rehabilitation outreach.

 

Our Vision and Mission

Our vision is that every person in Israel with blindness or visual impairment is able to realize his/her innate potential. Our mission is to be a leader in Israel in the development and delivery of professional, relevant and innovative services, and to disseminate knowledge about functional and vocational rehabilitation, for the benefit of people with blindness or visual impairment and for those involved in their lives.

 

 

Promoting the Use of Assistive Technology

Migdal Or specializes in introducing people to assistive technology, and in training and supporting them as independent users. Under the broad term of assistive technology falls optical devices (magnifiers and CCTV of various types), aids for daily living (mobility cane, color-detector, tactile games, etc.), computers, cell phones, customized software and applications, and more.

Migdal Or has set up a Technology Forum composed of experts in optometry, information and communications technology, rehabilitation instruction and users with blindness or visual impairment. This group serves as a beta-site for developers of new products that are intended for people with visual disabilities, to adjust the products to real needs and conditions in the field.

Assistive technology is an essential tool for the independent functioning of people with blindness or visual impairment; this message, and its practical application through training and support, is integrated into every service offered by Migdal Or.
