ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Established in 1996, BINA: The Jewish Movement for Social Change (BINA) is a movement at the intersection of Jewish pluralism and social action in Israel. BINA’s mission is to strengthen Israel as a democratic, pluralistic, and just society through Jewish study, social action, and community building. BINA’s flagship program, the Secular Yeshiva, is a beit midrash (study program) where young adults study and interpret Jewish texts and culture as a way to promote Jewish pluralism and social justice.

GRANT PURPOSE

To mitigate the economic hardships faced by The Foundation’s grantees in Israel, resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, and to help them achieve long-term organizational sustainability.

Thanks to the support of The Foundation, BINA: The Jewish Movement for Social Change will be able to develop new educational content, ensuring that we bring our Israeli Judaism activities to individuals and communities wherever they are and when there is a need - and interest - for more meaningful educational-cultural experiences.
