Ganei Haim - The IMPJ preschool at Beit Shmuel
Visit the IMPJ pre-school class, located in the Beit Shmuel–Mercaz Shimshon campus. The preschool opened a class for children of refugees and helps support the integration of these children into Israeli society. Take part in a hands-on activity with the children and hear from kindergarten staff and Kol Haneshama volunteers about the difficulties facing refugees and asylum seekers, the challenges in working with this population and how to integrate them into our own society. Experience how they are "Being the Difference" where very few dared to.
