Yefet 83 is a hub for community action and social initiatives and helps young adults get ahead in their education, careers and personal development. The center has a public salon, a common area where people can study or work all week long, a kitchen, and other spaces where activities, workshops and events can be held.
So what do they actually do at Yefet 83?
