Neve Ilan Community Center

Neve Ilan Community Center

With the completion of the new Neve Ilan neighborhood, there arose a need for a community center to answer the needs of the residents. An appeal was made to local donors and donors overseas for contributions to enable the building of a community center. The community center was built with generous donations from the Archie Sherman Foundation andThe Joseph Levy Charitable Foundation of England.

The community center has an auditorium for cultural events with 350 seats and a stage, rooms for various activities, offices and toilets. The community center is home to social, cultural, sports and communal events.

As the scope of activities taking place at the Neve Ilan community center expanded, it became necessary to add a second floor to the center. Once again an appeal was made to the Archie Sherman Foundation and to The Joseph Levy Charitable Foundation of England to fund the extension. Both Foundations approved the additional donation, and The Ashkelon Foundation will be starting planning and building very soon.
