Lev L'Achim (Hebrew: לב לאחים‎‎, "heart for brothers") or P'eylim Lev L'Achim is an Orthodox Jewish organization operating in Israel. It follows Orthodox Judaism, and works to move students from secular Israeli schools to schools based on the Torah and religious teachings. It sends out senior yeshiva and kollel students to recruit Israeli children for religious elementary schools. Like all kiruv organizations, its goal is to teach those who have grown up in a non-Orthodox Jewish environment how to practice Judaism.

Beliefs

As an Orthodox Jewish institution, Lev L'Achim adheres to Halakha, Jewish law, as taught by the Talmud and Shulkhan Arukh. Additionally, Lev L'Achim observes Jewish Sabbath and holy days, and promotes traditional forms of dress.

Work

Among their goals are: Enabling over children to get Torah education, helping Jews keep Shabbos within one year alone, preventing intermarriage

They also provide many sorts of Torah centers, assist immigrants, and have big brother, kiruv, and dropout prevention programs.

Many great Rabbonim/Rabbis have shown their support for this organization.

Controversy

Complaints about harassment from Lev L'Achim and the similar group Yad L'Achim against other religious organizations operating in Israel, as well as slow response time by Israeli authorities, is a continued matter of concern to the U.S. State Department, as described in their Annual Report on International Religious Freedom for 1999: Israel, and repeatedly in the State Department's Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor's annual International Religious Freedom Report, most recently in the 2009 report.
