  • Itzik Elstein, a True Emunah Hero Reaches for the Stars

    3Itzik Elstein, now 20, was a resident at Emunah's Youth Village in Pardes Chana, for more than 9 years.

It is there, that he first began to set goals for himself, and to reach them.

  • Leah's Story - Emunah's Neve Michael Children's Emergency Center

    Little Leah was recently brought to Emunah's Neve Michael Children's Emergency Center. She is slight and brittle and the look in those sad dark eyes tells an awful tale. There is a desolate place in her soul emanating through those cheerless eyes, as if someone took the light out of her life.

    The circumstances of Leah's arrival at Emunah's Neve Michael are similar to those of so many of our children. She was brought here by Court order after the Welfare authorities determined that her natural parents were no longer capable of raising her in a normal family environment. They were

emunah women ulpana students taxAt present, many women who have completed their high school studies engage in Torah study at the midrashot for women that are located throughout Israel. These women defer their IDF conscription or national service for one or two years so that they can pursue these studies.

By law, these women are entitled to exemption from National Insurance payments for a period of 12months from the time they complete their high school studies (i.e., until June of the following year). In actuality, however, these women begin their national service only in September-October of that year; those who join the IDF start their service even later (due to conscription periods and the army's needs). Thus, some of these women continue their midrasha studies until their conscription/national service begins, but at the same time they are obliged to work in order to fund their National Insurance payments for this period.

Emunah has submitted a bill that would benefit the young women who study Torah at women's institutions after/before their military/national service, by exempting them from tax payments during these years, just as young men studying in mechinot (pre-army preparatory frameworks) and "hesder" yeshivot are exempt from such payments.

It is our hope that the proposed law will benefit the young women who engage in Torah study at midrashot during the period preceding their national or military service.
