For 80 years Hadassah's Youth Aliyah has worked to rescue Jewish children. Today Youth Aliyah provides shelter, nurturing, and first-rate education to immigrant and at-risk Israeli youth from poor or dysfunctional homes. Hadassah supports three Youth Aliyah villages. Since its creation in 1934, over 300,000 individuals have been served. The program will include a video of the Youth Aliyah Poland Heritage Mission.
