Hand in Hand is building inclusion and equality between Arab and Jewish citizens of Israel through a growing network of bilingual, integrated schools and communities. Launched in 1997 with 50 children, Hand in Hand was established to combat one of Israel’s greatest existential threats: the growing alienation between Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel. Education is the key to changing this.
Our trailblazing path of shared education and living is equipping a new generation of Arabs and Jews to live together in cooperation and respect.
In the 2020-21 school year, we have seven schools and communities: Jerusalem, the Galilee, Wadi Ara, Tel Aviv-Jaffa, Haifa, Kfar Saba, and Kafr Qasim with over 2,100 students. There are more than 10,000 adult community members who collectively impact tens of thousands more Jewish and Arab citizens. And we are growing. With hundreds of students on waiting lists each year and parents organizing to launch schools in additional locations, Hand in Hand proves that shared living is possible, real, and the way forward for Israel.
Advancing the vision of equality and shared society is Hand in Hand’s legacy.
Please join us and make it part of your own personal legacy by including Hand in Hand in your will.
