Our Supporters

“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, individual donors, and philanthropic partners.

Many of our individual supporters give in honor of a loved one, or to commemorate a major life event; read more about these donations here.

Donors who have given $10,000 or more this past year and who agreed to be included are listed below in alphabetical order.

We are grateful to all of our supporters whose ongoing commitment to create an inclusive society in Israel makes Hand in Hand’s success possible. Thank you for standing with us!
