What is Neve Yerushalayim?

Neve’s mission is to educate, empower, and inspire young Jewish women. Neve was founded in 1970 by Rabbi Dr. David Refson to give Jewish women a Torah education in a vibrant, open-minded atmosphere. Women who come to Neve might have a beginner’s knowledge of Judaism or wish to discover more about their Jewish identity. We also accept students who have an advanced education and want to deepen their understanding and become leaders. Neve gives the support needed to help women challenge the status quo and make independent choices.

While Corona has created new obstacles to the world of Kiruv, Neve has fully instituted an initiative that provides both education and support to all of our alumnae as well as continuing our important outreach.

What is The Neve Family Institute?

The Neve Family Institute, located in Har Nof, Jerusalem is a grassroots therapeutic center that has been serving the greater Jerusalem area for nearly 19 years by offering low-cost therapy to the local populace, many coming from the country’s poorest segment of the population, empowering families, children and women to lead selfsufficient lives. Services are multi-faceted including individual and group therapy for post trauma, domestic abuse, marital challenges, various disabilities and selfsufficiency. One of the major divisions within the Family Institute is the Children’s Center whose goal is to help children suffering from various crises and challenges, necessitating the addition of a Post-Traumatic department. A specially-trained domestic violence treatment team provides counseling, support, and preventive services for men and women who have experienced or are in relationships involving physical, sexual or psychological abuse.

During the current Corona Pandemic, these life saving services are needed more than ever!
