The Hadassah Neurim Youth Village, located between Netanya and Hadera, is sited on a magical cliff overlooking the sea. The Village, founded in 1948, as an alternative site for the Ben Shemen Youth Village during the War of Independence, provides technological education to 380 pupils in grades 9 through 14. (In Israel, technological schools often offer post 12th grade education leading to degrees in practical engineering). Of these 380 pupils, 346 are boarding pupils and the other external pupils. Hadassah Neurim is a village rich in colors. The students come from all over the world, and the majority of the pupils are immigrants; about 30% of the pupils are immigrants from Ethiopia, and another 30% immigrants from the former Soviet Union. Most of these pupils, are from deprived families, and arrive in the Village with significant educational gaps. The Village provides these pupils with a comprehensive educational solution, values based education, a strong emphasis on social activities and enrichment, and an enhanced educational atmosphere designed to create a supportive environment that encourages pupils to succeed academically. Due to their significant educational gaps, a number of our pupils suffer from a poor self-image and lack self-confidence. All of the pupils who study in the Village choose to do so freely and Hadassah Neurim provides all of its pupils with everything they need to succeed and to leave the cycle of poverty educational programming, holistic alternative therapies, and personal coaching and a wide variety of activities designed to broaden the horizons of these pupils. Our dormitories provide a supervised residential solution for our pupils, and the school emphasizes each pupil’s strengths while recognizing and addressing their weaknesses. Hadassah Neurim is also home to the National Center for Light Athletics, which draws outstanding athletes from all over the country. Its presence has impacted the sports program in our school with school teams participating in many national competitions.
