Mission

Migdal Ohr means “tower of light” in Hebrew and serves as a beacon of hope to thousands of orphaned and neglected children. We serve over 12,000 children every year and raise them to become thriving, successful adults. Migdal Ohr gives children the support and education they need to overcome socio-economic barriers and realize their full potential. Migdal Ohr was established in 1972 by Israel Prize Winner Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman to ensure that each of Israel’s orphaned, abused, and neglected children would have a bright future, regardless of where they came from. Decades later, we remain fervently committed to that mission and dedicated to strengthening Israel’s next generation from the ground up.

Migdal Ohr

Migdal Ohr’s network of services and programs provide everything from a child’s most basic needs - clothing, medical care, family structure, and emotional support - to education, vocational training, mentorship, and more.

Together, we are working to ensure that every orphaned and neglected child grows up in a community that loves them and enables them to thrive.

Migdal Ohr is creating large scale change for Israel’s most underserved populations. We are raising a generation of dignified, capable adults who are moving society forward, defying the odds, and exceeding even their own expectations.
