Building Bridges in Israeli Society
At AMIT, we believe that we have an obligation and national responsibility to create connections and build bridges between all parts of Israeli society. Since AMIT’s establishment 95 years ago, the Network has placed questions of identity and values-based education at its core. AMIT’s “Klal Yisrael” approach is both a value and a way of life. AMIT fosters partnerships, dialogue and affinity between different groups within Israeli society, and within the larger Jewish world as well. AMIT believes that what we have in common is much greater than that which divides us, and that common denominators, respect and openness are indispensable to upholding a strong commitment to the resilience of the State of Israel.
Motivated by the vision of Bessie Gotsfeld, AMIT was founded in 1925 and opened the first vocational high school for girls in Jerusalem in 1933. Today AMIT is recognized by Israel’s Education Ministry as the country’s leading educational network across all measurements including quality bagrut, pedagogical innovation, pluralism and bridging the gap, lowest dropout rate and integrity.
In 1938, the “Mizrachi Youth House” is established in Tel Aviv to serve as a home for new immigrants and the unemployed, and as a social center for religious female workers. A year later, it becomes an absorption center for Youth Aliyah students from Germany.
