About Us


Chabad Youth of Karmiel is devoted to providing culture, community, and support for the student body and at-risk youth of the Galilee periphery. Our primary focus are the students of the Ort Braude college of Engineering. We provide economic relief, community support and empower Jewish identity.

Located in Karmiel in upper Galilee, the Ort Braude college boasts a student body of 4500, a majority of whom are Russian and Ethiopian immigrants, as well as Druze and Arab minorities. These receive the unprecedented opportunity to build strong families and healthy communities. They will join the leaders of Israel’s start-up nation revolution. Over eighty per cent of graduates are directly hired by Israel’s booming hi-tech industries.

Rabbi Nosson and Miriam Rodin have dedicated their lives to invigorating the Jewish people. Chabad Youth of Karmiel’s programs are a distillation of 7 years of their proven success as directors of youth programming for the Jewish community in Beijing.

Our dream is to see each graduate enjoying their own Shabbat dinner with their spouse, children and guests. Another link in the golden chain.
