Yerusalem arrived in Israel in 2010, and has been with Kuchinate since 2019. After spending time as Manager of Shipping & Orders, she is now the Director of our Sewing Department. 

“It’s a little difficult being a manager. You need to think in a new way. But I’ve always wanted something new, to teach and to learn new things… Now, I teach women how to sew. It makes me proud of myself.”

She lives in Tel Aviv with her six-year-old son. “He’s my life. Whenever I see him, it gives me power.” Yerusalem’s dreams for the future are to learn how to sew everything she can, and to be in a better place for herself and her son.  

“All of us have difficult lives. I want people to know that if they help Kuchinate, they’re helping so many women.”
