the Keren Gefen Fund supports Mind Body Fertility projects in Israel. The main project that Keren Gefen supports is the Rimon Mind Body Fertility Center at Hadassah Mt. Scopus, the first and only center of its kind in Israel.
Our Mission is to enhance fertility among Israeli women who are having difficulty conceiving by providing an array of wellness and psychological services which go hand in hand with medical treatment. The Workshops we provide are based on a successful model developed at Harvard University, which aims to lower anxiety and depression, increase self-esteem, and help with daily coping.
Research shows that by lowering stress and depression there is a thirty percent increase in fertility. Our Center is the only Center of its kind in Israel: it is open to all women at no cost regardless to where they are treated. The Center is funded entirely on donations; including a multi- year grant from The Stanley Black Family Foundation, the Pratt Foundation (Australia) and private donations from individuals in Los Angeles and Israel.
