The Children's Home

The Children’s Home serves 60 normative children ages 6-14 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. These children mostly have a normal educational and social capacity, and are in need of an environment that will allow them to realize their potential.  In view of their past painful experiences, this environment must be inviting and encouraging, with loving care provided by a dedicated staff.  We educate and nurture them in a holistic fashion, so that they reach the boarding school equipped with the motivation for studying towards, a matriculation certificate and an academic education, and are prepared to take an active part in society including serving in the Israel Defense Forces.
