Derech Eretz operates social-educational programs for Israeli youth and young adults, most of who come from Israel’s geographic and social periphery, at the important junctures of their early adult lives.
Derech Eretz’s bottom-up initiative intends at minimizing social gaps while creating engaged citizens, and ultimately, building a better future for Israeli society.
All our programs:
- Enhance social skills and social responsibility
- Break down the silos in which many communities within Israel reside
- Deepen students’ understanding of Israeli society and our Jewish heritage
- Instill a love of Eretz Yisrael
- All program participants perform community service. Since opening 5 years ago, our participants have volunteered over 60,000 hours of community service.
