Facilities & Services
SFW is located in the Ella Residence in the Malcha neighborhood
in Jerusalem. Fully equipped to serve our students and staff, the
Ella Residence has refurbished dormitory rooms with private bath
and kitchenette, as well as a lovely Beit Midrash, classroom space,
laundry room, and other wonderful amenities. The adjacent building
houses a shul and we are minutes away from a small local supermarket
and a brief walk from the Malcha Mall and Jerusalem Train Station.
The facilities house all of our first and second year students,
madrichot, eim and av bayit, and has ample space for our Shabbat
Food - SFW provides three balanced and nutritious
meals daily. In addition, each dormitory apartment is equipped
with its own refrigerator and kitchenette. Microwaves and toasters
are available in the main kitchen for student use.
Regular laundry services are provided. In addition, dry cleaning services are
conveniently located a block away from SFW.
Medical Care - In order to provide you with
the best medical care possible, Sha'alvim for Women has an upgraded
medical insurance plan enabling our students to make an appointment
and visit a private doctor when she feels it is necessary. In the
event of an emergency, chas v'shalom , our students will
be escorted by a madricha and/or our Eym Bayit to Terem (the
local medical clinic). In the event that hospitalization is required,
students are covered under their US insurance policies. Needless
to say, we will be in constant communication with your parents
in the event of any emergency.
Visa Renewal - At SFW we realize that renewing
your visa can be time consuming and we therefore have assumed responsibility
for visa renewal.
Computers - All students are given an e-mail
address and free access to e-mail. Computers are also available
for research and word processing purposes.
