The Abraham Fund Initiatives

The Abraham Fund Initiatives

The Abraham Fund is a leading non-partisan, non-profit Israeli organization working to advance a shared society of coexistence and equality among Israel's Jewish and Arab citizens. * Israel's 20% native-born Palestinian-Arab citizens - who live within the "green line"/pre-1967 borders of the State of Israel - suffer from higher rates of poverty and unemployment, discrimination in allocation of state resources, and marginalization from mainstream Israeli society. * Living within the Arab Middle East, The Abraham Fund believes that Israel can and should be both the national home of the Jewish people and a full and welcoming home to its 1.6 million Arab citizens. * To advance its vision, The Abraham Fund creates large-scale shared society models through a series of groundbreaking national initiatives that advocate for policy change and government reforms. This approach is called: "Advocacy Through Action". * Current initiatives include teaching Arabic language and culture in Jewish schools throughout Israel, at the same time exposing Arab children to Jewish Israeli culture; providing job opportunities and a pathway out of poverty for never-employed Arab women; helping neighboring Jewish and Arab mayors plan new health centers and colleges and transforming the way the Israel Police, other branches of government, civil society and the private sector serve the Arab citizens of the state.
