Rashut Ha’Rabim: The Jerusalem Forum of Jewish Renaissance Organizations guides a network of 35 Jerusalem-based Jewish pluralism organizations; each one dedicated to promoting a Jewish, Zionist, and democratic society working together in order to change public discourse and advance the legitimacy of all manner of Jewish observance. Through Rashut Ha’Rabim, Jerusalem’s Jewish pluralism and renaissance community partners and influences the Jerusalem Municipality, allowing member organizations and the community at large to benefit from municipal resources and partake in Jerusalem’s revitalization.
The forum’s innovation is reflected in the establishment of a joint space for Jerusalem organizations that share pluralistic Jewish worldviews. Beit Rashut Ha’Rabim, inaugurated in October 2018, is a hub for Jewish pluralism organizations, communities and activists from secular to Orthodox. Located in the heart of Jerusalem, Beit Rashut Ha’Rabim offers affordable work space, as well as professional support and training to Jewish pluralism organization in Jerusalem and beyond. The center is home to cross-fertilization of ideas and a wide range of community programs and events.
