Ayanot is a youth village located near Ness Ziona and south of Rishon LeZiyon, with only 20 minutes of city (or beach, depending on your route) stretching to Tel Aviv. The land was named after the many springs in the area and started out in the late 1920’s as a girl’s training farm, which later opened up to young Holocaust survivors who successfully immigrated to Israel. Today, Ayanot is a youth village and educational center that focuses on the values of tolerance, equality, and social involvement. Part of this approach includes agriculture and farm life as education tools, teaching participants to become leaders in their own way. With animals, nature, open space, and young people from all over the world, you can find connection and meaning everywhere.
