Jewish Agency Programs Also Serve Arab Israelis – Natan Sharansky
In response to recent statements by a member of the Knesset against the Jewish Agency for Israel, Chairman of the Executive Natan Sharansky said: “Along with our core mission of ingathering the exiles of the Jewish people via aliya, the Jewish Agency is proud to serve all the citizens of Israel, regardless of religion or ethnicity, which we view as an integral part of our Zionist vision.”
“Thousands of Arab Israeli families enjoy a range of Jewish Agency programs, including our Youth Futures mentorship program, which has placed a particular emphasis on schoolchildren in Israel’s Arab community; Masa Israel Journey and Project TEN, which run programs focused on Arab-Jewish coexistence and on serving underprivileged Arab citizens of Israel; and an innovative Jewish Agency high school opened just this year for Bedouin youth in the Negev. Thousands of Arab Israelis have already found their way to the Jewish Agency’s programs and to the dedicated professionals and volunteers who run them.”  (Jewish Agency for Israel-IMRA)
