In Israel, Jews and Arabs live in separation, fear and violence.
We’re on a mission to change that.

Starting with only 50 children in 1998, Hand in Hand now has six campuses and thousands of Jewish and Arab students.
As Israel’s fastest-growing, integrated social movement, we impact over 10,000 people every day, proving that we can live together as Jews and Arabs, Israelis and Palestinians.

How you can help

This year, there were over 1,000 families on waiting lists for our schools, and over 10 local communities asking to build a new Hand in Hand school in their area. With this growing demand, we know that our impact can grow exponentially. We need your help to get there. Here’s how you can get involved.

Where we work

What began with 50 Arab and Jewish children, has grown to a robust network of six schools with over 1,850 students, and thousands of families throughout the country. In every location where we have a school, our growing communities are trailblazing shared living in the face of tribal conflict and division. Our mission is to grow, and build a Hand in Hand school in every mixed Jewish-Arab city throughout the country, leveraging a shift from conflict to cooperation for all of Israeli society.
