TORAH & A TRADE

Netiv Tefachot, in the central Galil, reaches out to young adults who come from poor urban neighbourhoods and development towns.

Students at Netiv Tefachot are aged 18-24 and many come from difficult family and economic circumstances, including 20 percent from Israel’s Ethiopian community.

The 5 year programme combines Jewish studies, national service and projects, which serve the needs of their local communities and help the students fully integrate into wider Israeli society.

Since it was established in 2001, the number of families living in the community has doubled to 70. It is continuing to grow and 100 new plots are now being prepared for young couples.

In June 2015 the UJIA-funded Beit Midrash opened, providing this community with a modern hub, with a synagogue, library and classrooms.

UPDATE

UJIA will next be helping to fund new student dormitories for at-risk youth on development programmes at this growing community, and will continue to sponsor underprivileged young people to take part in the Netiv Tefachot programme.
