BINA is the place where I can express my Jewishness in the most full and challenging way
Eran Baruch – CEO of BINA
It’s hard to put to words such a profound experience. I felt like I was really learning Talmud with a new lens and taking that learning into the work I was doing.

“To me, the combination of Cultural Judaism and Social Justice, that BINA infuses in to all of its operations, can serve as a key to creating a common future to Jews in Israel and around the world, strengthening Jewish solidarity and Peoplehood.”
