Bema’aglei Tzedek uses educational tools & social action campaigns to create a more just Israeli society inspired by Jewish values.
Bema’aglei Tzedek is probably best known for being a pioneer in the field of Social Kashrut. Bema’aglei Tzedek’s Tav Chevrati, a certificate granted free of charge to restaurants that respect the rights of their employees and are accessible to people with disabilities, now graces over 350 establishments throughout Israel. Bema’aglei Tzedek also engages thousands of young Israelis, religious and secular alike, in ongoing educational programs that incorporate Jewish text study, an in-depth understanding of current socioeconomic issues in Israeli society, and practical social activism. In addition, Bema'aglei Tzedek's "Employment Watchdogs” initiative empowers 100s of high school students to advocate on behalf of non-union custodial workers and security guards working in their schools. We also run biannual, large-scale conferences tied to specific dates in the Jewish calendar and publish a journal dealing with the intersection between Jewish thought and social justice.
