Resilience & Rebuilding

Resilience (Hebrew: hosen) is at the heart of Israeli life. For 50 years, JNF Canada has supported resilience building to create stronger, healthier communities, particularly in Israel's South. Rocket shelters and protected classrooms provide critical physical safety and security for every Israeli - they have between 15-60 seconds to reach a shelter when under attack. Centres for diverse therapies and treatments, from PTSD treatment, animal therapy, family support, and youth services, provide important mental support and wellbeing. 

Recent projects: The Resilience Centre in Sderot, Horse Therapy Farm in Carmel, Animal-Assisted Therapy Centre.

This includes expanding facilities at senior care centres, Holocaust survivor support, and volunteer buddy programs and in-home care.

Sports, Arts and Music

Through sports, arts and music, the projects we support are helping children and adults discover their talents and reach their potential. In many cases, these activities are paired with therapy, education, or community development to create culturally vibrant and diverse communities. 

Recent projects: Ensemble studios at the Clore Centre for Performing Arts, accessible dance and theatre spaces at Vertigo Art Village, sports facilities for Israel Tennis Education Centres.

PROJECTS
Youth-At-Risk

Many of our projects ultimately serve youth at risk, who come from underserved communities, whose parents may struggle with meeting their own needs, and who have a higher chance of ending up in dangerous or criminal activities. By providing these youth with attention, extra support, inspiring mentors and facilities to socialize, we can disrupt recurring cycles of poverty and help these kids achieve their fullest potential. 

Recent projects: renovations at the Fidel Youth Centre, renovations for the Warm Haven for Orthodox Girls, Jaffa Daled After-School Enrichment Centre
