Providing a home for religious girls in need

About Olamot

Olamot is a multifaceted service for young girls at risk in Jerusalem. The service dates back over fifteen years, when one Jerusalem family, the Finkels, first started hearing of cases of young women from the religious community who had no place to call home. The family began by opening their home to these girls; but, over the next few years, it became clear that these were not isolated cases; and in time, the family found itself mobilizing a network of households from across the community to open their homes as well.

Our Mission

To be a home, in every sense of the word. A positive home environment (as opposed to a formal dormitory or rehabilitative service) is many things: a place where basic needs are met; a place where young people receive guidance. Read More

Operational Strategy

Olamot’s operational strategy is to create special frameworks for each special needs group we identify from among the wider community of young girls at risk.

Our vision

To ensure a stable environment that will ensure these women are able to effectively move on.

The Dorms

The dormitory experience is meant to bring girls together as part of a bonding social experience (a home away from home – and for many, the only home they have ever known). Our treatment model recognizes that for most of these young girls, family crisis creates both emotional and behavioral problems that in turn disrupt their progress in school and the community.  Read More
