Help Support Beit Hagai Youth Village
Throughout the 28 years since its establishment, Beit Haggai Youth Village has responded to the needs of at-risk youth who never enjoyed a warm, loving home and a supportive environment.
Beit Haggai Youth Village is situated about 10 km. south of Hebron, City of the Patriarchs. The village was established at the initiative of residents of the town of Beit Haggai, named (as a Hebrew acronym) for their classmates at the Kiryat Arba Hesder Yeshiva, young men in their early 20s—Hanan Krauthammer, Gershon Klein and Yaakov Zimmerman—who were murdered in 1980 in a terror attack on Shabbat evening. Both the town and the youth village honor their memories.
The unique therapeutic method applied at the Youth Village is based on the Family Unit Model, in which several trained young couples with children each care for about ten youngsters under one roof, in family-like surroundings.
The parents serve as role models. With much affection and love, we succeed in rehabilitating these youngsters and reintegrating them into Israeli society as productive citizens contributing to the Jewish People and the State of Israel.
Since the Village was set up, hundreds of its graduates have been recruited into the Israel Defense Forces, married and established fine families all over Israel, integrated well throughout the fabric of Israeli life.
The upbringing and education of each youngster is difficult, costly and complicated work—and we are responsible for filling all emotional and physical deficiencies in their lives. We would like to request your help in financing an assistance package for Beit Haggai youth:
• Annual Cost of Package per Youngster: $1,800
• Monthly Cost of Package per Youngster: $180
The package includes: Clothing and footwear, bedding, tutoring, extracurricular activities, psychological care, textbooks, enrichment and more.
On behalf of the administration and staff of Beit Haggai Youth Village, we thank you for all your assistance.
All donations are recognized for tax purposes in the USA, and receipts will be sent in English.
