The idea is simple – work to build a caring, just, shared society in Israel. Through truly innovative education based on dialogue and understanding, we teach leadership and responsibility for self and community. We promote social activism to drive positive change. We are 1,300 trained educators in 16 communities on the social and economic periphery. Dedicated to social justice, we live in the neighborhoods we serve, bridging gaps, solving local problems. Through our youth movement, schools, and local and national programming, we better the lives of 150,000 people every year.

OUR HISTORY

Dror Israel was founded by graduates of the Israeli Youth Movement, Hanoar Haoved Vehalomed, who served together in the IDF and shared a belief in the founding principles of Zionism. Recognizing the power of education to change society, these young pioneers went on to create the first Dror Israel intentional community in Ravid. The passion and commitment of these original members to create a just and equal society through education is what drives Dror Israel today.

“WE ARE CREATING A NEW TYPE OF COMMUNITY WHERE PEOPLE INVEST THEIR LIVES IN CHANGING THE WORLD AND CHANGING OTHER PEOPLES’ LIVES.”

Gary Levy, Dror Israel educator and founding member
