Who We Are

The mission of Neve College for Women is to educate, inspire, and empower young Jewish women, ages 18 to 33, who have little or no knowledge of their Jewish heritage.

Since 1970, more than 35,000 Jewish women from all over the world have attended Neve. Located on six acres on one of the highest points of Jerusalem, the picturesque campus provides a safe and nurturing environment for Jewish women to explore and find meaning in their Jewish identity.

We welcome students to come for as long as they choose: for a day, for a week, or for our six-week introductory program called Mechina, which is designed to accommodate any start date. Students often return at a later time to enroll in our intermediate or advanced levels.

Neve is interested in women personalizing their Judaism, taking ownership of it, and seeing it as an ongoing source of strength and wisdom. Therefore, Neve’s highly trained and experienced staff is sensitive to each student’s unique circumstances, talents, and Jewish background. Our alumnae have reported that thanks to their stay at Neve, they are now leading enriched Jewish lives for themselves, their families, and their communities.

“I love learning on the Neve campus – you get to meet a spectrum
of people from such different Jewish backgrounds.”
