As a regional school, Emunah Elisheva is required to accept all students who apply, including academically weak students and those from low socioeconomic families. This inclusivity, which creates a diverse student body in terms of socio-economic level, religious observance, and ethnicity, works to the benefit of its students.

Neve Sarah Herzog High School
Neve Sarah Herzog, located in Bnei Brak, is a girls high school with over 450 students.
At Neve Sarah Herzog, the goal is to enable each student to reach her highest academic potential while simultaneously building a strong Jewish foundation. Neve Sarah Herzog also recognizes that the pursuit of excellence can take various forms and so a student can pursue a regular high school core curriculum or she can choose a specialized program such as: art, film and new media, graphic design, dance, biomedical engineering and biology. These programs are designed not only to challenge and motivate program participants but to provide them with practical paths to further study or to the choice of a profession.
Neve Sarah offers accommodation to over 180 students. Today, most of these students are Ethiopian immigrants. Many arrive at the school lacking language skills and cultural customs and come from under-privileged families and poor neighborhoods around the country. The staff, teachers, professional workers and counselors make every effort to acclimate the students, filling in the gaps as necessary.
The staff at Emunah’s Neve Sarah Herzog focus on producing graduates with a solid foundation and a bright future ahead of them.
