Galilee Foundation for Value Education
ID: 580164531    Category:
We have been teaching tolerance in Israel since 1992 -- a clear voice of hope and sanity in a region that is better known for tension and conflict. We need to raise $25K immediately (with $20K already raised) or this voice will be silenced forever.
For example, at a time when building lasting bridges between Jews and Arabs is an ever more critical need, two unique programs we have built will disappear off the face of the earth: the Galilee Circus for Jewish and Arab youth, and Young Leaders for Jewish and Arab teens -- the future leadership of the Galilee -- to explore and share their values and then meet up with Jewish youth from abroad.

If you care about the quality of Israel's future, please help us continue our informal education work to promote Jewish-Arab cooperation, Jewish pluralism, and Israel-Diaspora relations. This emergency call for funds is to cover a deficit created by loss of revenues in the second half of 2014 because so many groups cancelled their trips to Israel due to the conflict in Gaza in July.

    Categories of Activities:
  • Bridging Social Divides
  • Co-Existence
  • Judaism
  • Pluralism

Founded in 1992, we began as a project of the collective Moshav Shorashim, focused on educational tourism - trying to bring the message of green development and intergroup harmony to visitors from around the country and around the world. Over time, the Foundation became independent of the moshav, and shifted its focus more to contributing to building a sustainable society here, with less emphasis on tourism. Today we have a staff of 9, mostly part time. We provide services to thousands of program participants every year: visitors to our "Neighbors" and educational tourism programs; audience members for circus shows; participants in our local cultural events.
