Bervin JNF Canada House of Excellence

Partner with us to help build the Bervin JNF Canada House of Excellence in Sderot, as we aim to close the educational achievement gap, foster academic success, and empower youth in the periphery. The Bervin House in Sderot, the city closest to the Gaza border, will serve as an after-school education, empowerment, and enrichment centre for high school students from Sderot and its surroundings, who will be provided with the necessary tools and skills for scholastic and personal success.
