EMPLOYMENT GUIDANCE AND TRAINING
KEMACH set up the Kivun Placement Center in Jerusalem in 2014, in partnership with the Jerusalem Municipality and the Ministry of Labor & Welfare. It is the go-to address for all Haredi men and women seeking gainful employment, helping them to find jobs with real opportunities for advancement and earn respectable salaries.
KIVUN PLACEMENT CENTER PROGRAMS
In just five years, Kivun has provided career guidance to 22,000 individuals — 12,000 men and 10,000 women.
The success of Kivun has inspired other placement centers around the country to follow our lead in breaking down barriers to employment.
MEET MOISHY DEUTCH
20 years old, single, lives in Jerusalem. Moishy is a Breslov Chassid from Jerusalem whose education did not include secular studies. He came to Kivun in February 2018, took our aptitude tests and had interviews with career guidance professionals. He was extremely motivated, joining our Education Completion Program and taking our preparatory courses in Mathematics, English and Computing Skills. We advised him to consider a career in computer programming and helped him get a 90% scholarship from KEMACH for a 6-month course. During the course he worked as a programmer with Quze, one of our Bizmax start-ups. Shortly after graduating, he was hired by one of Israel’s leading hi-tech companies as a front-end programmer, earning over 10,000 NIS a month. We hope that within 3 years he will be earning twice that amount!.
