AMIT has had a transformative impact on the Israeli educational landscape that extends far beyond its schools and students. Founded in 1925, AMIT educates more than 40,000 children in 96 schools, youth villages, surrogate family residences and other programs in 32 cities, constituting Israel’s only government-recognized network of religious Jewish education incorporating academic and technological studies.
Two-thirds of AMIT students come from disadvantaged backgrounds. AMIT enables these kids to dream big by substantially reducing the gaps between them and those in more well-off circumstances. AMIT levels the playing field by providing the highest quality innovative education, additional tutoring hours, emotional support, therapy programs and encouragement.
