HaGabay - "The software that does everything except throwing candies"
 
The software is conentrating on managing synagogues and other religion institutions,
and as the title says - It does just about everything except throwing candies.
 
"HaGabay Ha'Memuchshav" (The automated Gabay, Hebrew) is bringing the synagogues a big step ahead into the future, using a computer.
The software was developed by a well-experienced software team, with great knowledge in the need of the Gabays - and in co-operation with Gabays - and knew how to develop it exactly for their needs.
But giving that we are only human, there may be something that we have missed, and you can always write us about whatever else you need in the software. Based on that - you might want to regularly check for updates, in the Downloads page.

 
Since the founding the HaGabay 1 software, there have been received more than 400 request for extra features in the software, and everyone who has purchased the software had the benefit of those new features.
 
In December 2007 (Kislev 5768), we have launched the "HaGabay 2" as a new software, with new design and look, new features, and very importantly - Full multilingual support, to allow our international customers to use the software in their native language.

 
We want you to purchase our software only after you have tried and experienced it, thus you can download it with no charge.
The only difference in the trial is that the reports are limited.

Memorial candle, for the blessed memory of Yehuda Polak
Born in 22.10.1948 - 19 in Tishrei, 5709
Yehuda was the firstborn son for Holocaust survivors, David and Chava polak.
For them he was the revival of the Jewish people in Israel, the exit from shadows to light, from desperation of the Holocaust to a new hope of revival.
Yehuda was an employee of Bank Mizrahi for 26 years, he was excelled in high morals, accuracy and puncuality, perfect order and organization.
He has always connected quickly to the new technolgy improvements, and greatly helped the development and application of computer systems in Bank Mizrahi.
Yehuda initiated the founding of the "Heichal Refael" synagogue in Holon, and was a witness to its completion after great efforts.
He was also one of the founders of the "Yad Moshe" synagogue in Hashmonaiim.

Yehuda had an idea of automating all of synagogue's Gabay actions, together with friend Eli Cohen Gindi, which has also computerized the Hebrew calendar (LTM, 'Haluach Hatmidi').
For our great sorrow, Yehuda has passed away before his time and has not had the chance to actually initiate his ideas.
Eli Cohen Gindi has developed the software called "HaGabay Hamemuchshav" - the automated Gabay, as a memorial for Yehuda Polak.
Today the software is implemented in hundreds synagogues in Israel and over the world.

Yehuda was a great person, a man of stature with open heart and endless giving, and many other great qualities. He always treated respectfully the simple man the same way as the worthy.
His family knew that they can always count on him, in everything.
 
Yehuda Polak has passed away in 04.03.1999 - 16 in Adar 5759.

May his soul rest in peace.
