Our Vision

To allow youths in the periphery a new opportunity for a process of development and beneficial integration into society and the community, which will be a strength factor for themselves, their environment and Israeli society.
The Tsuriman Association is the first association established in the Golan with the aim of promoting the youth who are on the risk continuum.
Establishing a network of supplementary centers for treatment, guidance, counseling and prevention, based on a holistic view of the needs of the youth and their environment, and with the help of cooperation with the local communities and the factors relevant to the development of the youth

Tsuriman is the name of an ancient village, abandoned and barren, on the edge of the Golan Heights. Whoever looks deep into it, will discover, beyond its ruins, a paradise of springs, sweet fruits and remains of ancient art.

Our Focus

The youth at the center - We regretted our flag to be a support for the youth in the process of dealing with the various system elements. We will listen to their individual needs and build a personalized rehabilitation plan, together with each girl and boy.

Personal and social responsibility - The youth is the human raw material that can bring about changes in society and community. They have the drive and bursting energy needed to make revolutions.

sense of belonging - We believe that internal motivation and a desire for change will come through the empowerment of the youth and building an infrastructure with the help of a connection with a significant adult who sees and believes in them in order to allow them to feel a significant part of the community.

Sustainability is in our nature - Education for love and preservation of the environment through soil work and environmental education, as part of a holistic view that speaks of the essential connection to the continuation of human life on earth.

The Crew

Ya'ara Sulimani | Founder and CEO, director of the youth center and therapy area

All my life I grew up in the Golan and the Golan is my home and the place of my youth. As a social worker for over a decade, specializing in field work with teenagers, I had the privilege of learning their language. After endless conversations with boys and girls and from many years of work in therapy and workshops for teenagers, I realized that the youth need to talk to a person who knows how to listen to them, who connects with them and helps them discover themselves through a shared and deep process of inner clarity. I founded this association because I believe that putting the marginalized youth in the center is a worthwhile investment and an opportunity to invest in a better future!
