The KEMACH Foundation, management and staff, extend thanks to the president of the State of Israel, Mr. Yitzhak Herzog, on choosing KEMACH a recipient of the President’s Award on the occasion of the state’s 75th anniversary.
It is a great honor for us to receive this important award for making a unique contribution to the State of Israel, together with artists, intellectuals and activists who also contribute significantly to Israeli society.
The KEMACH Foundation and the staff of the various projects will continue their dedicated work to provide scholarships, and to promote the work of the Yaad Institute, the Kivvun Center, Bizmax, Movilot and the MeGo project – all designed to further the integration of Haredim into the Israeli economy and quality jobs.
On the occasion of Israel’s 75th anniversary, the president of the State decided specifically to bestow the President’s Award on individuals and organizations that have made a unique contribution to the State of Israel.
In the category of organizations that have made a unique contribution to the State of Israel, the KEMACH (Haredi Professional Development) won. Among the reasons noted by the advisory committee to the president was the fact that the organization has been operating for about 16 years and is leading a crucial revolution in everything related to the integration of the Haredi public into the world of employment.
“The innovative idea of creating a place that combines aptitude assessment, educational consultation, and employment guidance under one roof, was groundbreaking in the Haredi community and created a significant change in thinking and change of approach to integrating Haredim in the work world.
The organization was founded by Haredi-British businessman Leo Noe and Haredi social entrepreneur Moti Feldstein. To date, the association has provided employment guidance services and significant scholarships for both vocational training and academic studies to tens of thousands of Haredi men and women.”
