Reports on Be’eri Partnerships in Haifa and Modiin Detail Achievements

The Be’eri partnerships with the Israeli cities of Haifa and Modiin were created to lead an initiative for integrating Jewish-Israeli identity studies into all facets of formal and informal education. Studies at the end of 2010 indicated the progress that has been made

 
 
Haifa has long been known in the local psyche as the symbol of a non-religious Israeli city. In response to the lack of commitment of local youth to the city of Haifa and the State of Israel, the Haifa municipality launched a new citywide initiative for the renewal of Jewish-Israeli identity. The municipality began this effort by mapping out the Jewish-Israeli identity programs most fitting to bring this new direction to Haifa.
 
In 2009 the Haifa-Be’eri partnership was created to lead this initiative for integrating Jewish-Israeli identity studies into all facets of formal and informal education in Haifa. Going into the second year, the Haifa-Be’eri partnership has achieved a large number of objectives: 
  • A Be’eri municipal facilitator works in close partnership with the Haifa municipality to integrate Jewish-Israeli identity content into all facets of formal and informal education.
  • Eleven high schools are participating in the Be’eri program during the 2010-11 school year.
  • For the second year running, the Haifa municipality will fund part of the Haifa-Be’eri initiative and will add approximately 60 weekly classroom hours in the schools.
  • A large number of Haifa-based principals and teachers have begun training in the Be’eri School for Teacher Education.
