Bina strives to strengthen Israel as a democratic, pluralistic society, emphasizing Humanistic aspects of Judaism. One of Bina’s most important projects is the Bina in the Neighborhood project. Bina in the neighborhood places groups of young Israelis in struggling neighborhoods where they live, volunteer and study together. Tikkun Olam, as part of this project, immerses its participants both in the communities where they volunteer, and in a community of young Israeli peers who share a passion for social justice.
Tikkun Olam in Tel Aviv-Jaffa offers English speaking Jews between the ages of 22-27 the opportunity to live, study and volunteer in Tel Aviv-Jaffa for 5 or 10 months. Participants will volunteer and study in their chosen track, either Social Action or Coexistence. Participants from both tracks will take part in monthly overnight trips around Israel, as well as periodic day tours in and around Tel Aviv-Jaffa and cultural activities.
This opportunity is funded through Repair the World.
