Our Impact


Open Gates - Hillel works efficiently and with transparency, constantly evaluating the effectiveness of its programs. Our work is carried out predominantly by volunteers and hence most of our funding can go directly to our clients, including things like scholarships, rent assistance.

110 new participants entered our program

500 participants received services, representing clients who are at various stages of transitioning

100 students received full scholarships from Hillel

60 participants found refuge in our 4 short-term apartments throughout the year

60 of our clients served in the IDF and received special assistance through our soldier program

35 participants got rent assistance so they could afford their apartments

200 clients were active participants in our community-building and social programming

1,000 people called our hotline

300 Israelis volunteered their time to make Hillel’s work possible

Measuring our success:


80% of participants have already found steady employment and are self-sufficient

85% of participants received some form of advanced secular education

100% of participants found living accommodations after staying at our temporary apartment

30% of participants have decided to return to serve as volunteers
