Shaharit is a synergistic mix of thinktank, leadership incubator, and community organizing hub that is nurturing a new social partnership among all of Israel's communities, building a future rooted in the common good.
We bring together Israelis from diverse ethnic, religious and sociological backgrounds to create a different kind of Israeli politics: what we call a politics of the common good, which begins with strong relationships and building trust, and then reaches out to other stakeholders with humility, a genuine desire to listen, and a firm belief that dialogue must transform everyone in the room.
We run dozens of programs, ranging from leadership development in Israeli Arab towns, to cutting-edge surveys of Ultra-Orthodox Jews, to community organizing in local municipalities, to our flagship “120” program that cultivates the next generation of Israeli national leaders.
