"The whole entire world is a very narrow bridge, and the most important thing is not to fear at all.” (Rabbi Nahman of Breslau)

Our Approach to Jewish Peoplehood and Community (can be changed)

We believe in the importance of bringing people together for a shared purpose: making Judaism relevant for our changing world and making the world a better place. (can be changed)

about the network

The Beit BINA network builds upon BINA’s Secular Yeshiva model, but these new hubs are hyper-local and more focused on smaller neighborhoods and towns. Located across Israel, each Beit BINA offers local communities an array of activities, including: educational and social-cultural programming, community-building intergenerational events, regular Kabbalat Shabbat and Jewish holiday celebrations, and musical performances. Each Beit BINA is a vibrant, joyful, social-cultural home for Jewish expression and community-building. There are currently Beit BINA hubs Tel Aviv (north and south), Haifa, Be’er Sheva, Kibbutz HaZore’a, Kibbutz Ma’ale Ha’Hamisha, and Kibbutz Ramat Rachel.

The educational approach is true to BINA’s values – inclusive, pluralistic, egalitarian, and empowering – celebrating the diversity of Jewish and Israeli life and giving individuals the tools and confidence to take ownership of both their individual Jewish identity and that of their community.

The Beit BINA network is foundational to our theory of change; once the Israeli public knows that they can easily access BINA’s style of pluralistic Jewish expression in their communities, and that there is a Judaism that is relevant to them, demand will grow for Batei BINA. Eventually, there will be a Beit BINA in every city and every town in Israel. This will, in turn, support the effort to mainstream Jewish pluralism until we no longer talk about Jewish pluralism as the ‘alternative’ to mainstream Orthodoxy, but it will instead be the mainstream choice.

Beit BINA in the world

The Beit BINA network is expanding internationally for Israeli travelers, with hubs in locations in India, Palo Alto, CA, and Budapest.
