Welcome To Amigour

Founded in 1972 as a non-profit company, Amigour is a subsidiary of the Jewish Agency and is Israel’s leading sheltered housing company and second largest public housing group.

There are 650,000 Israelis over the age of 65, many of whom live close to the poverty line and cannot afford to purchase or even rent sustainable lodgings. Amigour operates fifty-seven housing projects nationwide to provide basic living needs for over 7,500 disadvantaged elderly. A large majority of these are new immigrants from the Former Soviet Union and Holocaust survivors. Without support, these men and women would face devastation and ruin.
