Serving All of Israel's Orphans

GIOH – General Israel Orphans Home – located in Jerusalem. We serve all of Israel's orphans. Both traditional orphans who have tragically lost their parents as well as living orphans who have no place to call home – they all find a loving and caring environment here at GIOH. At GIOH, every girl shines in our truly remarkable atmosphere. GIOH means the world to these precious children and they mean the world to us. We are truly the largest family in Israel!

Hear from Our Alumni and Donors

  • The girls’ orphanage is a charity I give to whenever the opportunity allows and I’m proud to be a third generation contributor...Our money could not be spent on a more appropriate gift. Go in peace and G-d bless.

  • I am the Matriarch of a family of children and grandchildren. I am independent but have not forgotten even for a moment where I grew up. For years I kept quiet and did not reveal to anyone where I grew up. Yet now I speak about this with my children and grandchildren. I want them to know about my past history and this is no longer a secret. May your hard work be blessed and your endeavors be successful.
