Midreshet HaGalil


This unique school for new immigrant teenagers from the former Soviet Union is a cornerstone project of our socio-educational endeavors.  Located in Migdal Ha'Emek, the student body is composed of students who have had a tremendous amount of adversity in their lives; broken homes and poverty are just two examples of the challenges these students face.  At Midreshet HaGalil these youngsters are given the means and the opportunities to shine.  Upon graduation many of them go on to be doctors, officers in the Israeli Defense Forces, teachers and community leaders. 

Established in 1993, the school will house in the coming year approximately 300 students, grades 8 through 13. The school features three highly specialized faculties: science (biology, physics, and chemistry); Technology (computer programming, electronics, and hardware); and Free Arts (geography and sports). Upon mastering a curriculum rigorous in both secular and Jewish studies, graduates receive a vocational degree in electronics, metal working, or computer graphics. The school's post-graduate academic program specializes in electronics and engineering.

The academic excellence of Midreshet HaGalil and the achievements of our matriculating students have resulted in increasing demand for admission. Accordingly, the school has been expanded, adding dorms, classrooms, laboratories, a kitchen and dining room, and a synagogue and is able to accommodate over 500 students.
