Accessibility

The Equal Rights for People with Disabilities Law, 5758-1998
The rights of people with disabilities and the commitment of the Israeli society to these rights are based on accepting the principle of equality, recognizing the value of a human being who was created in God's image, and the principle of human dignity.
This law aims to protect the dignity and liberty of a person with a disability, and to anchor their right to equal and active participation in society in all areas of life, as well as to adequately address their special needs in a way that allows them to live their life with maximum independence, privacy, and dignity.
At Cfir's, accessibility is a way of life and is led on a daily basis by the organization's managers and employees.

Buildings’ Accessibility Arrangements

The Light Train was designed in consultation with accessibility experts, in order to adapt the train, to the extent possible, also to passengers with various disabilities.
The train is accessible to people with disabilities in both direct and digital channels, with the aim of helping and improving their integration into society through respect, equality and independence.


Cfir encourages equal employment and integrates people with disabilities in its workforce, enabling them to work and develop in a wide range of topics. Cfir is also in contact with the Club House Association and community integration.
