Founded almost 100 years ago, Nachlat Yehuda started out as an agricultural farm and training farm for young adults. Today, nearly a century later, the Youth Village serves as a safety net for thousands of young Israelis, native and immigrant, studying in an environment that meets specific educational needs.
