About Us


Boys Town Jerusalem’s founder, Rabbi Alexander Linchner, had a vision, to provide a refuge in Israel for children who survived the Holocaust and those who subsequently poured into Israel from around the world.

Thanks to the support of our donors from across the world that dream became reality in 1948.

Today, with the help of our magnificent supporters, nearly 70 years later that vision remains alive. Your support allows Boys Town Jerusalem to continue to help Israel’s most vulnerable children and bring out the best in each and every child. It means we can transform their lives by providing them with the tools and skills they require to live a constructive and happy life in the Jewish State.
