Our Partners

"Hand in Hand represents an alternative path towards a shared society that has been ignored for too long… It is not just unique, it is exceptional and they are changing the landscape in Israel one child at a time, one community at a time." 

[Rabbi B.P., Canada]


The continued growth and increased impact of Hand in Hand’s network of bilingual schools and inclusive communities is thanks to the joint efforts of our ever-expanding circles of parents, government support and philanthropic partners.

We are grateful to all of our supporters, large and small, whose on-going commitment to create an inclusive society in Israel based on equality and mutual respect for all its citizens makes Hand in Hand’s success possible.

Thank you for standing together with us!
