Partnerships, Cooperative Ventures and Kindred Organizations

The Heschel Center has been privileged to develop relationships with many organizations, both in Israel and around the world, that promote sustainability and share parts or all of the same vision that we are committed to.

We have created various forms of synergy with these groups: from joint ventures and formal partnerships to sharing best practices and mutual learning and encouragement.

Following are links to the activities of these kindred spirits among Israeli organizations. Their sites are in English unless otherwise noted.
