Located in the lush pastoral setting of Kibbutz Ein Hanatziv in the Emek HaMayanot
Valley, Beit Achiya is a home for 10 young religiously observant men on the autism
spectrum.Beit Achiya was established in order to enable its members to lead independent lives, each according to their abilities, with full integration into the kibbutz community life, employment, study and leisure. In addition, an extensive range of cultural and educational enrichment activities and classes are available to the men in the afternoon and evening. Our vision is to create a community where people with special needs are fully integrated into the normative community’s life. The reality of living together – people with special needs next to members of the normative communiandty including children, youth and adults of all ages and occupations, creates a tapestry of mutual acceptance and giving. The overall community accepts and embraces its special residents, integrating them into all fabrics of community life:
events, festivals, daily gatherings, children and youth activities, and more.
Life on the kibbutz allows members of Beit Achiya to choose how to fulfill
themselves within the spirit of Torah and Avodah (Labor).
Beit Achiya residents live independently and are personally supported by the full range of professional staff to assist them in all aspects of their daily activity and
