In case you are not familiar with some of the work Bnai Zion does, we would like to take a moment of your time to introduce you to Ahava Village for Children & Youth in Kiryat Bialik (ISRAEL)

Ahava is a residential center for children ages 6-18 coming from high-risk domestic situations. Comprised of 15 apartments, educational facilities and leisure areas, the campus is home to over 200 children who receive personalized care, support, education, therapy and training. The children attend school in the village and live in apartments with foster parents in a nurturing family setting.

Ahava was originally established in Berlin as a home for Jewish orphans. In 1938, with the Holocaust imminent, Ahava was relocated to then-Palestine with a group of fifty European children. Since then, Ahava has become a refuge for children in need where violence, abuse, crime and addiction were prevalent in their homes.

In Israel there are children who need to be placed in foster care who are able to have a stable and productive youth. In Israel there are also children from worst-case dysfunctional environments who cannot be placed through the regular foster care system. These are the children at Ahava, who need more specialized care and treatment to heal from their troubled past.

Ahava is also home to many alumni now proudly serving in the IDF who do not have their own families to return to. In special apartments for soldiers, these young adults have a warm and comforting environment for when they are on leave or temporarily post-service.
