Welcome to the Kemach Foundation
The name Kemach comes from the initial letters of the Hebrew words Kidum Miktzoee Haredi – Promoting Haredi Employment. The Hebrew word Kemach also means flour and is a reference to the saying that without flour (sustenance) there can be no Torah.
Kemach is an independent, non-profit foundation established in 2007 with the support of a group of private benefactors, headed by British philanthropist , Leo Noé, to provide a holistic approach to the many challenges resulting from a lack of participation by the Haredi community in Israel’s workforce.
By providing an all-embracing range of services, in partnership with government and other agencies, including the provision of generous study and training scholarships, support for new employment initiatives, in-depth testing and counselling, we are confident that the Haredi community can make an even greater contribution to Israel’s development.
