Amutat Keshev

Language barriers have stymied them and were forced into low-paying jobs, menial work, and very low income housing in the periphery of the country. Moreover, many were leery of the government as they lacked an understanding of how systems work here. As a result, their basic rights have not been realized and has left them a weakened and downtrodden group, culminating in negative implications for Israeli society as a whole. In 2016, social and cultural centers were operated by 11 different municipalities for new immigrants from Caucasia. The activity centers were headed by members of the community. Due to the need for designated activities in municipalities with smaller numbers of new immigrants from Caucasia, the number of municipalities that receive funding for activities for Caucasian immigrants was to be doubled in 2017. Nonetheless, we seek further support as enumerated below in the funding request section. All of our efforts to date, ranging from the organization?s founders to working personnel, have been done on a voluntary basis. We have three main areas of focus: a. Integrate and advance young Caucasian immigrants into the mainstream of Israeli society b. Close the academic, social and economic gaps thereby allowing for equality and a chance to succeed in their new country c. Maintenance of and publicizing the heritage and culture of the Caucasian Jews Our programmatic efforts such as cultural events, seminars, tours, leadership training, mentorship program, academic counseling, army advice, and legal assistance conducted from our Center are concentrated in the following cities: Acco, Nazeret Illit, Kiryat Yam, Tirat Carmel, Haifa, Naharia, Ohr Akiva, Pardes Chana, Netanya, Ashdod, and Beer Sheva. We are the only organization in Israel focusing solely on this immigrant population.
