Communication Support Center

Shmaya is the Ministry of Welfare's exclusive provider of communication support services, for the deaf and hard-of-hearing. That means that when it comes to providing translation and transcription services for those who rely on sign language, we are here for YOU. 

Every person in Israel who struggles with significant hearing loss is eligible for hours of sign language translation/transcription services. 

For those who are eligible, you are entitled to 45-hours-a-year of services from the age of 12.

We will assist you throughout the process of receiving eligibility from the Ministry of Welfare and make sure that you get what you deserve. 

The services include hours of translation, transcription, signing repetition, and remuneration. It’s important to know your rights and advocate for yourself. Shmaya stands behind you every step of the way.
