Project Spotlight: Fellowship Houses for Youth Village Graduates

Israel’s youth villages provide homes to orphans, new immigrants, and other needy youth from poor or abusive homes. These villages provide educational and social services to children ages 12-18, helping them complete high school and prepare for service in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). However, once they turn 18 and graduate from the youth villages, they are left on their own. During their IDF service, they have no home to return to on weekends and no outside support.

Thankfully, The Fellowship has been able to build Fellowship Houses in eight youth villages, which graduates will be able to live in during the first six months of their IDF service as they get on their feet and adjust to military service.

Watch the video above, from the dedication ceremony for the Fellowship Houses, to see what these units look like and to hear from Rabbi Eckstein about the difference they will make. We are so thankful to our donors for helping us provide for these soldiers who do so much to protect the state of Israel!
