Someone actually did it!

For years and years, I've heard so many women say "my big dream is to open a women's center, where women can get care for the body, mind, and spirit, all in one place." It's really amazing, actually, how many people have that same dream, especially in Jerusalem.

Well, someone finally realized her dream. Here it is, a new center in the Talpiyot neighborhood of Jerusalem that offers osteopathic and naturopathic care, obgyns, ultrasounds, exercise classes, and all sorts of support groups, all under one roof. There's babysitting, "Mommy and me"-type groups, and special programs for pregnant ladies.

What is missing? I've heard women say that in their dreams, the center includes a mikva and shiurim. Who knows, perhaps the Mercaz Nashim will grow to include those, too. One can dream.
