Panim for Jewish Renaissance in Israel


Source: Panim


PANIM is a non-profit, advocacy organization working to promote pluralistic Judaism in Israel in partnership with over 50 organizations and institutions that share its vision. PANIM’s portal serves as a gateway for resources which aid in fulfilling its mission of increasing public and government recognition of Jewish pluralism and pluralistic Jewish education as a strategically important component of Israel’s strength as a nation.

Panim is actively involved in advocacy for pluralistic Jewish identity education empowering pluralistic organizations, institutions, and schools. Panim encourages research for developing a comprehensive overview of Jewish education in state schools to help evaluate curricula and programs, and support state schools applying for government funding; and to provide data to help PANIM enhance its advocacy efforts.

Panim produces Jewish pluralistic educational activities such as the Hakhel Jewish Learning Festival, a happening of Jewish pluralistic culture bringing together people from Israel’s entire religious and political spectrum every Succot.

Panim's website (mainly in Hebrew) contains information about its activities, affiliated groups and organizations, articles, research papers as well as an online bi-weekly newsletter.
