Founded in 1996, BINA Center for Jewish Identity and Hebrew Culture (BINA) was created as a forum for exploring Jewish values and texts in pluralistic settings, for leadership development and societal improvement. It impacts over 25,000 Israelis every year through its Shabbat & holiday events, seminars, classes, and social-educational programs. In 2006, BINA established the Secular Yeshiva in Tel Aviv, followed by a second location in Jerusalem. Today, attended by hundreds of young adults each year, the Secular Yeshiva has emerged as a center for Jewish cultural expression in both cities.
Secular Yeshiva – Core Tracks engages 420-525 pre-army, mid-service and post-army track students in the study of Jewish texts, exploration of Jewish culture and involvement in social activism.
