ALUMA, also known as IFCA, Israel Family Counselling Association, was established in Tel Aviv in 1954 as a centre for counselling and treatment of couples, families and individuals. Aluma is a non-profit organization and the only establishment in its field located in the central region of Israel. This makes it possible for anyone to receive therapy, regardless of their place of residence, origin, religion or economic circumstances.
NCJWC is the only Jewish organization in Canada that supports this vital service.
ALUMA is dependent on donations. With very limited resources ALUMA is striving to help meet a constant need for counselling, in a country under enormous stress. National Council of Jewish Women of Canada has helped keep this vital service alive. We are very passionate and proud of our long-standing commitment to ALUMA, and will continue in our efforts to make a difference.
