Creating a Social Enterprise

Bet Shemesh is Israel’s fastest-growing city, and a veritable microcosm of Israeli society. While new neighborhoods are being built, bringing a diversity of educated and high-performing populations to the city, there are still serious welfare problems which need to be addressed.
