Founded in 1998, “A New Way" committed to building a shared society in Israel.
Our work focuses on the critical need to generate long-term multicultural processes that will allow Jews and Arabs to have highly meaningful interaction in the formal educational system and their local communities.
"A New Way” acts as a unifying force. In everything we do, we try to challenge the ruptures that exist in Jewish-Arab relations.
Our vision is to generate change on a grassroots people to people level, enabling Arabs and Jews to meet directly without mediators, reducing fears, prejudices, alienation, suspicion, and hostility. Replacing them with tolerance, understanding, trust, respect, and a deep-seated commitment to multicultural collaborations and shared citizenship
