Kav-Or means "Connection to Light" in Hebrew. Ending the darkness of lonely hospital stays and of being different from other children definitely connects little ones to lighter days and outlooks.

The site will offer solutions to enjoying holiday meals and school trips, restaurants, sports activities, and more, providing tools and information for handling those situations.
