The “Mishan” network: past and present

Mishan was established in 1931 by the General Federation for Jewish Settlement in Israel.

In its early years Mishan was a nursing home, but in 1998 the network adapted to the times and transformed the residences into senior living centers that cater to the needs of the modern clientele and community of the 21st century.

The network operates to this day within the framework of the New Histadrut and promotes the organization’s social activities.

Mishan continues to lead the senior living sector, and strives to improve quality of life of the retired community and residents of their nursing homes and senior living centers, and to protect their rights and welfare.

Mishan currently manages nine senior living facilities, which cater to some 4,850 residents. Mishan’s staff includes 1,200 professional and dedicated employees.

In addition to senior living facilities, the network manages three children’s villages for orphans and children in distress. Despite the difference between treatment of adults and young people, there is considerable similarity in the community work which supports two of the weaker populations in Israeli society, requiring a similar amount of care, concern and a warm heart.
