Educating and caring for those boys who need it most
Boys Town Jerusalem was established by Rabbi Alexander Linchner in 1948 to provide a place to live and learn for children who had survived the Holocaust. More than 7,000 students from limited backgrounds have graduated and many have become leading figures in medicine, engineering, the armed forces, technology, commerce, law and education.
Today, the school continues strives to support Israel’s most vulnerable children and bring out the best in every one of its 950 pupils. helping them to transform their futures by providing them with the tools and skills they require to live a constructive and happy life and break the intergenerational cycle of poverty their families are caught in.
The school achieves this through a unique combination of outstanding secular education, focussing on technology, traditional Jewish learning and unparalleled pastoral care. No other school in Jerusalem provides three meals a day, professional social care and psychological support, an extensive range of extra-curricular activities and volunteering opportunities as well as an option to board.
