Education and welfare projects

Education & Welfare Projects

ESRA, founded in 1979 as a non-profit, is Israel's largest English-speaking community, aiding the integration of olim while working toward equality in Israeli society. ESRA aims to help diminish educational and social gaps, especially in the socio-geographic periphery, focusing on education and excellence programs and enhancing personal and social skills in a safe and supportive environment. We also integrate English-speaking immigrants into these projects, helping them feel useful and contributing members of society, thereby serving our two significant aims.

Second Hand Shops

ESRA Second-Hand shops for the community work on many levels. Everyone can donate their unwanted items in good condition for recycling and resale at our Second-Hand Shops and at our Bookshops

Volunteers collect and sort the items at 5 centers in Raanana, Kfar Saba, Modiin, and Binyamina (see details below) and goods and books are offered for sale at very reasonable prices. The general public, native Israelis, new immigrants, and foreign workers, can buy pre-owned goods at cheap prices for their own use or for send to their families abroad. The Ra’anana ESRA 'Nearly New' shop employs people with special needs helping them integrate into the work circle and society.
