The key to change is developing multicultural awareness

At Mabat, we envision an Israeli society where friendships, academic and professional collaborations cross religious and ethnic lines, and where the full range of individual identities and cultural/historical narratives in Israel are respected and recognized.

Changing a shared reality

Through a combination of process workshops, community leadership initiatives, intercultural tours and joint cultural events, Mabat breaks down barriers between Israeli citizens of different religions, ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations, and gives them tools to impact greater equality in their universities, workplaces and communities overall.

Mabat’s program made me a different person. As a participant, I strengthened my identity, after which I could appreciate the Other, and cultural differences. As a facilitator, I got to see the experience from the outside, and see how others began to grow, accept, and love. It’s just fascinating to see participants in the first session, and then to see them at the end
Amir Haradan, a graduate of Beit Berl College
I became aware of the difficulties individuals from the Arab community were facing in my department, which prompted me to raise the issue amongst my close friends in order to increase awareness and tolerance for one another. The workshop is expanding my horizons in regards to different cultures, communities and populations—giving me a new perspective
Noy Lavi, a Behavioral Science student at Kinneret College
We invited Mabat to conduct cultural competency training for employees in various units at the Technion Institute. The facilitators did a great job of opening up a window to discuss questions of identity, awareness and the different identities that make up Israeli society, and thinking about who we are as individuals and as a culturally diverse society
Efrat Barkai-Goral, Director of the Israeli Hope Academy in the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology
The sessions were very interesting and insightful. They really helped me learn more about myself and the other participants. We respected each other, there was no racism or prejudice, and we accepted the differences between ourselves. Although we spoke two different languages, we understood each other well
