Galilee Foundation for Value Education

Galilee Foundation for Value Education
ID: 580164531    Category:
We use the methods of informal education to build a sustainable society in Israel.

Our projects focus on three major fault lines: Jewish-Arab cooperation, Jewish pluralism, and Israel-Diaspora relations.
We see the Galilee as the laboratory where we are working on implementing the vision of a Jewish state that lives according to Jewish values.

We are engaged in a number of ongoing projects:

The Galilee Circus - a Jewish-Arab youth circus, operating since 2003, performing all over the country.

Young Leaders program - working with hundreds of teenagers in local Arab and Jewish towns and villages, who will form the next cadre of young leaders of the Galilee.

Neighbors - enabling Jewish and Arab high school students to address relations between their two communities, initially by agreeing and implementing a public project or activity in their communities, schools, media or elsewhere, helping students take a concrete first step towards shared society.

Pluralistic Bet Midrash - lectures, classes, workshops, festivals for the Jewish population of the Galilee.

Educational tourism programs at sites throughout the Galilee - short and long term - study tours, simulations, seminars, etc.

    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 12, all part time. We provide service 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.
