Magen Mishpacha is a non-profit organization that operates thanks to 250+ volunteers who take their time of day & hard work and put it into an amazing cause.
We work hard, and we are good at what we do, the difference we make is the reason we as an organization keep moving forward. but as we take bigger challenges, the resources we need increase, and so does the demand.
In a perfect world we wouldn't need funding to make a change, but unfortunately to make a better one, we do.

Immigrants — new and not so new — often face problems they cannot solve on their own. Poor knowledge of Hebrew or Israeli realities, sometimes does not allow them to even recognize the problem before it becomes a full-scale crisis, such as withdrawal of children from the family, burden of debts, lawsuits, arrests of property. The NGO Magen Mishpacha helps people in difficult circumstances to find a way out and solve the problem. However, we consider the prevention of crises to be one of the main fields of our work. For that purpose, Magen Mishpaha CEO Keren Fishzon gives lectures for new repatriates in Israeli cities. The topics of her lectures are: Civil rights and crisis prevention; Adaptation of children in the education system; Rent of apartment: Fair Lease Act; How to become bank’s reliable client; The fourth generation of Jews: Order of registration of citizenship; Pensions from countries of origin and Israeli pension funds; Israeli labor law; Work through middlemen firms; Municipal housing; Ministry of Absorption and other institutions in the life of a new repatriate. Such series of lectures have been already given, with the support of municipal authorities, in the cities of Jerusalem, Haifa and Bat Yam.
