KALEIDOSCOPE teaches children:
*To understand themselves
*To understand others
*To give to their communities
KALEIDOSCOPE is a school based approach aimed at helping educators, students and parents to appreciate diversity and be accepting of each other. Using a kaleidoscope as a motif that represents multiple identities, emotions and cultures, KALEIDOSCOPE fosters the development of social and emotional skills such as reflection and team-building in school curricula, promoting commitment to community service interaction between individuals of different cultures, i.e., Jewish and Arab children, native Israeli and Ethiopian children, secular and religion children, and children of the special and general education tracks.
* Since its inception in 1992, KALEIDOSCOPE has included an estimated 42,000 students, educators and parents in Arab and Jewish communities in Israel.
* KALEIDOSCOPE founding director Chana Reifman Zweiter was recognized at the Knesset in May 2015 with the Bonei Tzion Award for her contribution to diversity education in Israel.
