Hechven Center: Advice and Guidance for New Olim

Hechven Center

Need guidance, advice, and support for your next steps in Israel? Hechven is designed to help you realize your full potential as an Israeli citizen.

Hechven offers a group of services available to you after your Aliyah, both before and after you finish an absorption program. It operates at various Kibbutz Ulpan and Ulpan Etzion locations, and at the offices of The Jewish Agency in Tel Aviv. 
Hechven offers:
  1. Workshops on Israeli culture and integrating into Israeli society
  2. Career counseling
  3. Assistance in finding employment
  4. Academic guidance
  5. Psychological support
  6. Connection to relevant social services
  7. Workshops on managing personal finances
  8. Personal mentors in the form of “Big Brother” volunteers – other young immigrants who made Aliyah without their families, and who have successfully integrated into Israeli society
  9. Preparation for IDF service
  10. Financial assistance in times of crisis
  11. Service in your native language, when available
Hechven is available to anyone ages 17-30 who has ever been part of one of our other Young Adult absorption programs – even if, for any reason, you did not finish it.
