BINA runs many special projects and works with many partners in different fields of Jewish pluralism, social action, Jewish education, community, and more. Read more about some of our special projects and partners below.
The city of Tel Aviv-Yafo has generously provided buildings in its Ganei Teva (Nature Gardens) for BINA to create a new campus in the heart of southern Tel Aviv. Ganei Teva was the original site of Tel Aviv University and the city’s botanical gardens remain located there today. The site is perfectly situated among the southern Tel Aviv neighborhoods where BINA volunteers serve.
BEIT BINA in India is a meeting place for the thousands of young Israelis and other young Jewish travelers to study, take part in workshops and open sessions on a range of topics, enjoy Shabbat together and get involved in local community social action projects. The house is open to all and is the first of many across India.
This year has been a most challenging year: war, hate crimes, increased racism and intolerance in the public sphere... Now more than ever, Israel is in need of strong voices that speak out against racism and work for coexistence not in spite of Judaism, but in the name of Judaism.
“We Declare” seeks to unite communities across Israel in shared democratic learning and discourse on Israeli democratic values and on the relevance and significance of democracy for 21st century Israel.
BINA educators give lectures, scholar-in-residence weekends, Divrei Torah / sermons, facilitation of interactive learning sessions, and more. Topics range from Bible and Talmud to current events and issues of social justice.
