Shared Society

As a social democratic foundation, we want to promote a society in which all members have equal rights, equal accessibility to resources and all contribute to society.

On the one hand, the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict is leading to tensions between Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel. On the other hand, the heterogeneous Israeli society poses a challenge to the concept of a shared society.

Building a shared society requires a variety of measures: the empowerment of disadvantaged groups in society, the establishment of equal rights for all citizens, and the promotion of exchange and cooperation between the various groups in society.

In order to fulfill these diverse tasks, we work together with a wide range of Israeli NGOs and universities as well as international partners.
