About Israeli Salad

A leadership program for teenagers from different segments of the Israeli society to develop ambassadors of democracy, equality, tolerance and friendship across tribal lines.

"A child from Beth El, a child from Rahat, a child from Herzliya and a child from Beitar Ilit –  not only do they not meet each other, but they are educated toward a totally different outlook regarding the basic values and desired character of the State of Israel"

Reuven Rivlin,
10th President of Israel
