The Gumat Chen boarding school for girls, is a warm home and a unique therapeutic space for girls from religious homes aged 14-18 from all around Israel. Currently, in 2020, 45 girls are receiving the support and education provided by the boarding school.
Our boarding school is located in Kibbutz Sa’ad (in the northern Negev, near Gaza) and is situated in the heart of a quiet, remote, kibbutz community that affords the girls a warm and supportive framework in which they are full partners in the processes they undergo. Each girl receives a “host family” in the kibbutz whom she visits on the Sabbath, where she witnesses, experiences and partakes in a healthy family life. Over time, positive human connections are formed, deep bonds which may last for many years to come.
