A place to live. A community to call their own. A network of support. For the 7,500 elderly Israelis living in Amigour apartment complexes, all this adds up to a life rich with purpose and connection. The Jewish Agency helps make it possible.
Today, there are more than 650,000 Israelis over the age of 65, many of whom live close to the poverty line, unable to purchase their own home. Amigour affordable housing projects are holistic environments that empower our elderly citizens. Residents live independently yet remain connected, thanks to unique cultural and social services that preserve memories and foster joy.
Since 1972, Amigour has served the elderly in this fashion, as well as provided more than 60,000 housing solutions for new immigrants and disadvantaged citizens. The mission is clear: Uplifting those in need helps the entire Jewish community thrive.
