Shared Communities Program
pairs neighboring Arab and Jewish municipalities to create cross-community partnerships that promote dialogue and reconciliation. Without personally visiting Israel, it's hard to fully understand the social and economic divides which separate its Jewish and Arab societies.
92% of Israelis reside in separate communities, and despite a handful of exceptions, 99.9% of Israeli children study in completely separate school systems.
Since 2012, Shared Communities has been healing these divides. It fosters collaborative programming on cultural, economic, educational, and municipal themes that address mutual needs and mutual interests.
