Learning Together, Living Together

Building shared society. One school, one community at a time. 

Our mission at Hand in hand is to create a strong and inclusive shared society in Israel through a network of Jewish-Arab integrated bilingual schools and organized communities.

We currently operate integrated schools and communities in five locations with 1,100 Jewish and Arab students and more than 3,000 community members.

Over the next ten years, we aim to create a network of 10-15 schools, supported and enhanced by community activities, altogether involving more than 20,000 Jewish and Arab Israeli citizens.  

Jews and Arabs — learning together, living together — and inspiring broad support for social inclusion and civic equality in Israel.
