Hillel is an Israeli-nonprofit that helps young adults who have left the ultra-orthodox world. We believe all people have the right to choose the lifestyle they want, and therefore never try to convince anybody to change their lifestyle. Hillel provides our participants with psychological counseling, housing, educational scholarships, and vocational help so they can lead the lives they have always wanted.
Leaving the ultra-orthodox world is a major life choice which requires strength, courage, and careful planning. Upon leaving the ultra-orthodox world, many find themselves cut off from family, without a place to live, and without a sufficient secular education or skills for getting jobs. We advise those who have decided to become less religious to plan the transition well in advance and consult with others for advice before making rash decisions.
