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.
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
