The Tessler School of Nursing – The Legacy

tessler88The greatest legacy of Chaya Sarah Tessler a"h are the hundreds of nurses who are working in nearly every hospital in Eretz Yisrael and in the world.

To be a nurse is to live chesed. To be chesed.

The Tessler School of Nursing is an institution which is all chesed. Its essence is chesed. Its being is chesed.

This chesed takes two forms:

It produces the finest and most professional nurses in Eretz Yisrael. *

* It gives a miktzoa of kovod, an honorable profession to hundreds of nurses who help support their families.

The Shulchan Aruch describes six levels of tzedaka – the hi ghest being helping a person to learn a vocation so that he can be independent in supporting his family and have a basic foundation for his future..

This and the Tessler School of Nursing tessler99is her legacy. We the sta ff, the graduates and the nursing students of Tessler School of Nursing are her children.


You gave us a life. You taught us how to give life. To help others live a better life.

We will always be thankful. We will always mourn her loss.
