When frequenting a pharmacy, a customer looks for good service, vast experience, knowledge and reliability on the part of the team of pharmacists. At Opaletka Pharmacy you can find all these and more: aesthetics, design, spaciousness and superior products.
Opaletka Pharmacy first opened its doors in 1917 by Mgr. Eliezer Opaletka that was amongst the first qualified pharmacists in Israel. He was one of the founders of the Hebrew Association of Pharmacists and left his mark on the profession in the country.
In 1950, Mr. Shlomo Ozarenski acquired the pharmacy and decided to keep the name of its founder. Shlomo continued to develop the business, which became brand name in the city. He was reputed for his honesty, courteousness and devotion to his customers. He was loved by everyone who knew him.
In 1967, his son Amnon, who graduated from the pharmacy school of the
Hebrew University in Jerusalem, began to develop the area of alternative
medicine and was the first in Jerusalem to dispense homeopathic preparations.
Amnon became the manager of the pharmacy in 1980.
For many years, Amnon taught in the prescription laboratory of the pharmacy
department and he was also active as the chairman of the pharmacists'
association in Jerusalem. His profound interest in homeopathy and herbal
remedies prompted him to obtain, already in the 70s, a license to import
natural vitamins from the USA, which pleased many physicians in town
who, already then, believed in the therapeutic qualities of natural
products. As time passed, he created a complete department in the pharmacy
that dispenses herbal therapies and homeopathic preparations.
