No young child should have to face the world on their own.

Lev Lalev provides critical support to orphaned, neglected, and abandoned children throughout Israel.

Healing hearts. Building futures.

For children who have suffered loss, neglect, abuse, or abandonment by the people who are supposed to care for them the most, the world is a scary and lonely place.

That is, until Lev LaLev steps in.

Lev LaLev has been providing care and support to disadvantaged children across Israel since 1962, treating them as if they were our very own. We offer more than just food, clothing, and shelter—the children in our care are welcomed into a loving family that protects, empowers, and nurtures them.

We embrace every child with a full heart, treat them with dignity and compassion, and won’t rest until they have a fair shot at the brightest possible future.

Hear Their Stories

There is one common thread among the hundreds of children who we’ve cared for: Lev LaLev has given them love and support when they needed it the most.

Support
Our Girls

Sponsor a day’s expenses in the merit of a loved one, give a child the bar/bat mitzvah of their dreams, or help a young bride or groom prepare for her wedding.

We can’t erase their trauma, but we can help them rewrite their story.

Some children come to us as young as 7 years old—hearts broken, self-worth shattered, fear in their eyes. Some are unable to smile or speak. But with intensive therapy, emotional support, and a whole lot of heart, we help them grow into the strong, joyful, confident young adults they were meant to be.

Every hour of every day, we’re there for them.

Every hour

    LEV LALEV MITZVAH PROJECTS

    Mazel Tov!
    Want to make your Bar/Bat Mitzvah 2x as special?

    Double your celebration by sharing it with a girl from the Lev LaLev Orphanage in Israel

    Our Mitzvah Project Coordinator will help you with ideas and tips to make it meaningful, memorable and fun.

    Choose a Mitzvah Project to make your big day even more meaningful!

    When you give them back their childhood, you hand them their future.

    Without positive role models, our orphans face the risk of repeating unhealthy dynamics with which many grew up. With the right tools, we can change their narrative and impact future generations.

    We’ve seen it happen. Our 900+ alumnae now lead happy, fulfilling lives. They pursue higher education, successful careers, and loving families. This transformation is made possible by generous donors like you. 

    Help us forge a new path for Israel’s orphans and generations to come.
