Intentional Community Projects
Akko JAM, a performance space, a place for this mixed community to socialize together. JAM has been expanded to Sderot, Rehovot and Jerusalem.
Dror Israel educators and families share a vision for Israel of a just and equal society. We live and work together in sixteen lntentional Communities throughout the social and economic periphery. We welcome educators born outside Israel who share our mission and vision, building bridges between Israel and Jews around the world.
Partnering with government, we identify local challenges and create projects to solve them. A shared performance space, a Hebrew-Arabic language program, and a local nursery school are some of the successful projects.
We are trained educators; most hold degrees from Beit Berl College which offers special programs in advancing youth at risk and the Arab-Israeli school system. We are required to study Arabic as part of the Dror Israel-Beit Berl degree program.
We are located in: Afula, Akko, Ashkelon, Beer Sheva, Carmiel, Eshbal, Haifa, Mitzpe Ramon, Netanya, Petah Tikva, Ravid, Rehovot, Rishon Letzion, Sderot, Tel Aviv, Tiberias.
Dror Israel educators have been on the front lines, working with local municipalities to meet community needs since the very beginning of the COVID crisis:
Opening daycare centers for the children of doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers
Keeping all our high schools for Youth at Risk open so vulnerable youth remain safe
Delivering groceries and medicines to homebound seniors and those in need
Volunteering on farms
