Our National Social Justice Initiatives bring Israelis together for important conversations, literally, in the public square. Religious meet secular, rich meet poor, young meet old, Druze and Arabs meet Jews. Our youth groups also partner with the Orthodox youth movement, B'nei Akiva. We moderate conversations and with each encounter comes hope and, over time society is transformed.
During COVID-19 even amidst increasing division and mistrust between communities, we have continued our work online and in small groups when possible. We have also rallied volunteers in the effort against domestic violence and femicide, both of which have increased during the pandemic.
