Jewish-Arab Programs
Forging a New Path

Booklet created by Dror bi-lingual class

The path to a secure future lies in our ability to transform from a mixed to a shared society - where opportunity, equality and justice are shared by all. Our Jewish-Arab programs establish common ground. At Beit Berl Teachers College, our educators learn Arabic to facilitate dialogue.


Our youth movement with 18,000 Arab members in 60 branches in 32 localities, is the only one in Israel with Arab members and leaders. Jewish and Arab youth come together to discuss democracy and social justice.


Dror Israel is “one of the major providers of informal education in Israel’s Arab community.” (Interagency Task Force on Israeli Arab Issues – Informal Education in Israel’s Arab Society, July 2017)


Bi-lingual language classes bring Jewish and Arab adults together to share cultural experiences and learn each other’s history.

In our programming, cultural connection and conversation build understanding. Understanding builds compassion; and compassion is the foundation for peace.
