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.
