Ahava Village -- Community Served
At Ahava Village, over 200 children from ages 6 to 18 are cared for in a nurturing atmosphere providing physical and emotional stability.
In 1991, Ahava adopted a revolutionary Family Care System that models a real family environment. The residents live in apartments consisting of 16 children in a 4-bedroom unit, supervised by a "foster family" acting as surrogate parents. Each child has a responsibility to the "family unit" such as meal preparation, cleaning, laundry, and other tasks. On a weekly basis the residents get together to celebrate Shabbat in the social hall funded by Bnai Zion. This home environment assures that children are nurtured to their maximum potential.
Ahava means ‘love' in Hebrew.
