Life is complicated. We all know that already…there are often issues that we need to deal with in life, whether in terms of our parenting, our marriage, our personal or professional development, our social and community lives, or the influence of the security situation in the gorgeous rural area that we have chosen to call home.
Mifgash – the community, multidisciplinary therapy center in Northern Binyamin, was founded in response to these issues. Mifgash was born out of a need for local, quality, diverse types of professional help, and for 25 years now, we have been providing this for residents of Shiloh, Eli, Maale Levona, the Gvaot of Shiloh, Gav Hahar, the Jordan Valley, and more.
When we place our children, ourselves, and our relationships in the hands of a professional, we should feel safe. We should feel that they really see us and are listening to us, and that we are being treated by professionals who know how to help us. Our therapists are from Binyamin, the Shomron, and the Jordan Valley, and they are very familiar with our personal and communal climate. At Mifgash, there is a diverse selection of professional therapists who provide treatment both in the emotional field and the paramedical fields.
Mifgash is led by a committee composed of representatives from the regional communities who are attentive to their residents. They are interested in developing therapeutic solutions and cultivating personal and community resilience here in North Binyamin. The center is run by a team of experienced therapists who make sure to keep professionally up to date and maintain communication with the communities to monitor and identify the changing needs.
The center has branches in Shiloh, Eli, and Maale Efrayim. Every person who approaches the center receives guidance and direction according to their individual needs, empathetically and in strict confidentiality. At Mifgash, every therapeutic process is closely accompanied, and personal and family considerations are taken into account. Sometimes, several professionals come together to each contribute from their own specialties. Treatments at Mifgash are subsidized by the Kupot Cholim, Bituach Leumi, Ministry of Defense, and various foundations. List of our partners
