Since 1994, Mashiv HaRuach has been contributing to the building of a rich and diverse Jewish Israeli culture that is at once creative and innovative yet steeped in the richness of Jewish heritage and tradition. At the intersection between modernity and tradition, Mashiv Haruach is positioned to contribute to a new creative, inspiring Jewish Israeli identity. Mashiv HaRuach has a two prong strategy:  First, we expose Israeli artists, writers and poets to Jewish literature and culture, helping to deepen the quality and caliber of art and literature in Israel.  Equally important is the exposure of religious writers and poets to modern Israeli culture, enabling them to access an important voice and gain an understanding and appreciation of the different perspectives that make up Israeli society. In this way, Mashiv HaRuach is one of the pioneers in the realm of Jewish renaissance in Israel.
