British Friends of Boys Town Jerusalem

Boys Town Jerusalem is situated on an 18 acre campus in Bayit Vegan, Jerusalem. Over 800 Jewish boys, aged between 12-20 study, pray and in many cases live there. Most of these boys come from financially disadvantaged backgrounds, broken homes or from families devastated by bomb or missile attacks.

Other boys emigrate to Israel, often without their families solely to study at Boys Town. Many of these boys come from countries where anti-Semitism is rife and look towards Boys Town as a 'home' where their lives will be enriched. Boys Town Jerusalem's slogan is "we turn young boys from limited backgrounds into young men with limitless futures. "

British Friends of Boys Town Jerusalem, via appeals, legacies and events raises money which is sent to Jerusalem to support these boys.
