Down Syndrome High School

Your Everlasting Investment in Jerusalem

The newest Zion Orphanage program caters to high-functioning Down Syndrome high school boys, with the goal of maximizing their academic potential. 

Located a 4-minute walk from our main campus in downtown Jerusalem is a property owned by Zion Orphanage – built in 1950, yet never renovated.

Through your generosity, this property will be transformed into a custom-built school for this purpose. Included in the building will be four classrooms, a computer room, a music room, a dining room, bedrooms, a kitchen, and a synagogue.

The cost of the complete renovation (not including furniture and appliances) is $800,000. 

The building – your eternal connection to the Holy City – will be dedicated in the name of your choice.

Please join in providing these precious Jewish children with the physical, emotional and educational needs they so richly deserve.
