Healing Bet Shemesh
In partnership with the Jewish Agency For Israel’s Partnership 2Gether program, and in response to real and increasing tensions between factions of society in Bet Shemesh, Be A Mensch is hosting and facilitating meetings between Charedi, National Religious, Traditional and Secular Israelis to discuss the importance of mutual respect and the dangers of by-standing while bullying or other negative acts are perpetrated.
This program will be in schools and within and among the community at large. Goals are to torpedo stereotypes, bring together different segments of society that would normally not interact and to heal the rifts caused by extremists and the reactions- and lack of reactions- to their actions.
