Zion Orphanage recently received notice from the Israel Ministry of Welfare and Education requiring more space for each child (for sleeping, showering, lounging, and eating).
Compliance with these new regulations requires major construction to expand the living facilities – at a cost of $1.3 million.
Zion Orphanage runs a tight ship and we don’t have extra funds to meet the criteria while continuing to provide high-level 24/7 care for 180 Zion boys.
This additional construction places enormous strain on our already frugal budget, so we are appealing to our cherished supporters.
If we are unable to comply with the new rules, the longest-running Jewish orphanage in the world (120 years) could be forced to close down.
Our founder Rabbi A.Y. Blumenthal weathered many storms in his quest to provide underprivileged boys with a fair chance to reach their potential.
Please help in this one-time emergency campaign. It is a matter of saving lives.
