Center for Holocaust Survivors
The "Center for Holocaust Survivors", provided a warm, caring home for survivors in need and survivors who immigrated from the former Soviet Union. It is a place for Holocaust survivors to come on holiday and rest and recover after illness and serves as accommodations for our volunteers. The Center also hosts reconciliation meetings and receives groups from around the world to connect them to the past.

Home for Survivors
The home was initially established for survivors who are:
1. Alone or without family.
2. Lacking adequate financial resources.
3. Unable to immigrate unless they have a home to come to.
The center's operations are adapting due to the increasing age of Holocaust victims.
(For updates or changes, please refer to our Newsletters available on our website here.}
Located in Jerusalem, this home is rented on a long-term lease. Residents of Ner Yaakov, who were financially able, contributed to the expenses. The remaining deficit had to be covered by donations. Several Holocaust survivors have resided in this ‘warm home’ for years, until they either moved closer to family members or received their own apartment from the government. Others have lived there for nearly 11 years, alongside volunteers who assist them with daily tasks.
We invite you to read the testimonies of some former residents who are no longer with us.
