ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Founded in 1991, Hillel – The Right to Choose (Hillel) helps thousands of Yotzim (those who leave ultra-Orthodox communities) to integrate into wider Israeli society. Its services include: a hotline and drop-in centers; transitional housing; a 24-hour emergency shelter; counseling and support services; academic support including tuition aid and career consultation; employment programs; assistance in the military; programming for single mothers; aid in accessing social services; and community building and peer networking activities.

GRANT PURPOSE

To mitigate the economic hardships faced by The Foundation’s grantees in Israel, resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, and to help them achieve long-term organizational sustainability.

We're truly thankful to the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles for joining us. This has been a year like no other as the arrival of COVID-19 has tested us. Your support allows us to continue providing ex-Ultra-Orthodox in Israel with the tools and services to succeed.
