Senior Services in the Western Negev

We know how hard it is to retire. Living on a pension is a major and complicated step.

But don’t worry. Shmaya is here to help.

If you are over the age of 60 and live in the Western Negev, we can help you through each stage of the retirement process. 

Our Western Negev +60 program is uniquely designed to make sure that a) you know your rights and b) you receive the help you deserve to make your retirement period the golden years of your life. 

 Our courses and activities include: 


- Finance Workshops for working people who are about to retire. These classes will help you prepare for your financial future and clarify your rights so you know exactly what the Israeli government offers. 

- Personal Workshops to help you emotionally transition into this new period of life.

You will learn what to do if you need assistance or where to turn if you are looking for productive ways to spend your time.  

- Digital Workshops familiarizing you with the digital world to improve your computer skills and knowledge base.


Western Negev 60+ is a partnership of the Ministry for Social Equality, Eshel - Joint Israel, and the group of Councils in the Western Negev, run by the Shmaya organization. The Service is for residents of the Western Negev Councils; Sderot, Ofakim, Bnei Shimon, Sha'ar Hanegev, Sedot Negev, Mechavim and Eshkol.
