The House for
by the Shashua family foundation
The House for Social Solidarity was founded in 2020 as a result of civic responsibility during Covid-19 outbreak. The Israeli economy relies heavily on small businesses therefore it is so important to keep them thriving and ensure their survival.
Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for small Israeli businesses to rehabilitate, grow, and develop, while emphasizing values such as innovation and solidarity.
Since our establishment we have been working to form a large community of business owners, to encourage partnerships and mutual support between them, and to create a supportive environment that includes ongoing guidance and counseling, professional tools and financial assistance.
