Yad Leah’s first thrift shop began in Beitar, a large ultra orthodox community just outside of Jerusalem. Established by Yad Leah’s founder, Karen Thaler, the thrift shop began in the Thaler closet. It is now housed in a 4 bedroom apartment complete with a bridal room, a baby layette department and a large supply of clothing for children, teens, and adults.
This shop is primarily tailored to meet the needs of a population that struggles to provide basic necessities. By simulating the shopping experience, families feel comfortable to browse, try on, and purchase clothing they can feel proud to wear.
