The Nigunim Hostel for girls, a Fellowship-funded shelter in Israel, is the only long-term, supportive living environment for at-risk, adolescent girls from ultra-Orthodox families throughout the Holy Land. The Nigunim Hostel provides a supportive environment that recognizes their religious backgrounds and helps them create healthy links to family, friends, and community, as well as providing school and career support.
Recently, we received a thank-you letter from the hostel’s grateful director:
We thank you for your support of our important and unique work – operating the Nigunim Hostel for girls at risk.
Nigunim houses girls between the ages of 13 and 18 who are victims of abuse and neglect at home and outside the home. These are girls who had felt lonely and lacking in self-worth. As a result, they deteriorated to the extreme.
At Nigunim the girls receive a warm and loving home, a school that advances them both academically and professionally, and a dedicated and professional staff that helps them build strong personalities as daughters of Israel filled with the spirit of God.
In the name of the girls we bless you with health, satisfaction and joy, and we wish you all the best.
