For more than 40 years, Gesher has been bridging the gaps between different segments of Israeli society. Gesher’s message is, “Be different, be together”; remain true to yourself while coexisting with those who are different from you. Gesher’s innovative programming targets current leaders of Israel, future leaders of Israel and the Israeli public. Through its programming, Gesher advances a vibrant and inclusive vision of Judaism in Israel. Our dynamic, often life-changing educational and cultural programs foster a society based on mutual respect, dialogue, acceptance and co-existence. In facilitating dialogue and mediation between Jews of all kinds of backgrounds, we have reached and affected over 1 million Jews since Gesher’s founding.
