Our activity in Ashkelon:

With its 150,000 residents, Ashkelon is a reflection of the Israeli mosaic. Religions alongside secular, Israelis with new immigrants, old and young families. The OMETZ Ashkelon branch is located in the city library’s media-tech facility, functioning as a leading educational center that operates to bring various populations in the city closer together by increasing the presence of Jewish identity inside and outside educational institutions.

Only 5 minutes distance from the magnificent shore, the OMETZ Ashkelon branch cooperates with the city’s Torah Culture Department. Thanks to you, the branch enjoys numerous benefits and direct access to events, lessons, educational institutions, social involvement, fairs, projects, etc.

OMETZ’s National Service volunteers in Ashkelon are active in the afterschool clubs and in elementary schools. The branchy constantly strives to expand into preschools, junior high schools and secondary schools. The branch is active in various informal frameworks such as community centers, camps, etc. The schools in which the branch is present welcomes the National Service volunteers of OMETZ and the connection with the community is a strong one. The children enjoy the lessons, love the volunteers and eagerly anticipate the next session.

Cooperation with the Torah Culture Department in the city allows OMETZ volunteers in Ashkelon to accumulate experience not only in instruction but also in supplementary aspects such as project production, participation in public endeavors and familiarity with city politics.
The Garin National Service volunteers– Garin National Service volunteers in Ashkelon is made up of volunteers of the OMETZ center and National Service volunteers of the association Aminadav.
