About the project
Misholim (Pathways), the Jerusalem Expressive Therapy Center for Children, was established in 1980 to use the arts as a tool to reach children with emotional difficulties. Misholim’s art and music therapists work with approximately 50 children aged five-15 who have not responded to conventional one-on-one therapy. Working in small groups at two locations, they provide unique tools to children suffering from a range of emotional issues, from physical and sexual abuse to surviving terrorist attacks and who are often limited in their capacity to express themselves.The Jerusalem Foundation has provided support to the organization over many years, ranging from support for building repairs to subsidies for families who are unable to pay for Misholim’s services. Misholim shares its facility with the Old Katamon Senior Citizens Club.
