KALEIDOSCOPE teaches children:
*To care
*To respect
*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.

    Categories of Activities:
  • Bridging Social Divides
  • Education
  • Co-Existence
  • Empowerment

The Kaleidoscope approach has been molded into the following existing programming:*Kaleidoscope-Towards Understanding of Self and Others; Aimed at promoting understanding between new immigrant & native Israeli youth, secular & religious youth, Arab & Jewish children, and children with disabilities and those without. This program includes professional training and interactive programming adapted to meet varied developmental levels. *Kaleidoscope; Educating for Social Responsibility; Implemented in high schools, this initiative is aimed at fostering a deeper understanding of citizenship and democracy, which in turn promotes social responsibility. Variations of this programming join Arab & Jewish teens or students of the 'special ed' and general tracks in community service where they work together towards common goals. *Ohr Hadash; This program connects unaffiliated Jewish children to prayer, highlighting its universal values. *Kaleidosport; A social skills program for Ethiopian children.
