The Sarah Herzog Children’s Centre

Emunah’s first residential home was built in 1949 for children whose families had perished in the Holocaust. Today it is a residential and day facility for the treatment of children at risk and their families.

Over 70 children at risk between the ages of nine and 18 reside full time at the Home’s residential campus. In addition there are day care intervention programmes which are attended by 105 needy children who continue to live at home, but spend their days at a special programme returning home at 7.30pm.Afula Playground_1472

The Emunah children’s centre provides the children with all their needs, including food, clothing, shelter, various therapies and social activities and support in schooling. Focus is placed on treatment of the families and includes counselling, individual care packages tailored to the child, family therapy, parenting training, parent-child activities and a unique mums and dads club.

Recently, in a number of instances the Emunah centre was called upon by Child Services to take in children on an emergency basis. Immediate protection is provided for those at risk while their personal and family situation is evaluated and permanent arrangements made.

The site now includes the Sybil and Louis Galinski Dining Hall, Herman and Leonore Wanderer Music Rooms, Sally-Ann Dix House, the Pinchas and Rosi Rothschild House, Sir Israel Brodie Synagogue, The Fanny Morgenstern Moadon, Clara Grace Moadon, the Janie and Sidney Somper Moadin, the Arthur and Helen Davis Complex with the Wolfson Clinic and Sally Lee Staff Quarters, Beit Ruth Home for immigrant Children, the Doris and Bertie Black Therapy Centre and Beit Anna, Sztokman Day Dormitory.
