No young girl should have to face the world on her own.
Lev Lalev provides a warm and loving home to orphaned, neglected, and abandoned girls throughout Israel.

This is their Safe Place.
For young girls 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 they walk through the doors of Lev LaLev.
Lev LaLev means “Heart to Heart.” Since 1962, we’ve provided a nurturing home for hundreds of girls on our beautiful Netanya campus, nestled in Israel’s Northern Central region. Our girls receive more than just hot meals and a warm bed—they get a family who will love, protect, and empower them.
Learn Our Mission
We embrace every girl with a full heart, treat her with dignity and compassion, and won’t rest until she has a fair shot at the brightest possible future.
Hear Their Stories
There is one common thread among the hundreds of girls who have lived here: Lev LaLev has given them love and support when they needed it the most.
Sponsor a day’s expenses in the merit of a loved one, give a girl the bat mitzvah of her dreams, or help a young bride prepare for her wedding.
“Everyone was so warm. They just gave and gave with their whole neshama, their whole soul. For the
first time, I felt like I had a family. They taught me that I can have a good life that it’s up to me to
make that happen. I feel confident I’ll be able to create the warm, loving home I’ve always dreamed
of, because Lev LaLev has helped me heal and has taught me what love and giving is all about.”
“When I first walked into the orphanage, I thought I was in the wrong place because the kids were so
lively… The facility is amazing and they are giving these girls everything you could hope for, and
always trying to improve.”
We can’t erase their trauma, but we can help them rewrite their story.

Some of our girls arrive 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 women they were meant to be.
Every hour of every day, we’re there for them.

Join us in charting a new path for our girls, and for generations to come.
Without a positive model to emulate, our girls are at great risk of recreating the unhealthy dynamics in which they grew up. But by giving them the tools to break the cycle, you can change this narrative—not only for them, but for future generations.
We know it’s possible, because we’ve witnessed it first-hand. Today, our 900+ alumna are living happy, healthy, wholesome lives. After leaving Lev LaLev, many continue on to pursue higher education, create successful careers, and build beautiful families of their own.
