About the project
The Jerusalem Foundation established the Jacques Levi Lassen Kindergarten in the Katamon Vav neighborhood by renovating a freestanding kindergarten building that had been built in the 1960s and had fallen into disrepair. The kindergarten served approximately 35 children, aged four-six. Work included moving the rear wall to enlarge the two classrooms, electrical and plumbing work, and renovation of the play area. Following a decline in kindergarten enrollment in the neighborhood, two organizations serving children–Bayit Cham (which runs an afternoon program for children from families with severe economic difficulties) and Kadima (serving children with cerebral palsy) began to use the facility.
