Description: 

Established in 2013 in partnership with the AVI CHAI Foundation, Nitzanim is a national organization that seeks to foster, reinforce, and enrich the Jewish-Israeli experience. Nitzanim works in partnership with local municipalities and communities to develop a vision and city-wide plan for pluralistic Israeli Jewish education and culture. In each community, Nitzanim provides training and guidance to community leaders; initiates and develops community events connected to the Jewish calendar and life cycle; enriches cultural life in the region; and inspires residents to take responsibility for the community in which they live and for raising its future generations.
