Lissan is a nonprofit organization that promotes linguistic justice by recognizing language as an essential resource and a fundamental right. Our mission is to make Jerusalem’s two spoken languages, Hebrew and Arabic, accessible to population groups with a heightened need for language skills acquisition. Our programs are culturally, thematically, geographically, and economically tailored to the needs of our target populations. Since 2013, we have been conducting projects that teach Hebrew to women from East Jerusalem, and Arabic to medical teams from the Western part of the city. We also provide resources to make bureaucratic information more accessible to Arabic-speakers, and operate a training program for Hebrew teachers. Our long term vision is of a Jerusalem with equal presence of the city’s two dominant languages, Hebrew and Arabic, in bureaucratic systems and in the public sphere.
