Our Students

The four hundred twenty children living in the village include 60 normative children ages 6-12 who have been removed from their parent’s care for various reasons by the Ministry of Social Welfare, and placed in the Ben Shemen’s Children Home.  For many, Ben Shemen becomes their home year round.  The population of the  boarding school, 360  12-18 year olds not only includes native Israelis but also immigrants from the FSU and Ethiopia, and youth from France who choose to attend high school in Israel.
