“I know as a Jew that we as a people are instilled with values that command us to love our neighbors as we do ourselves. So while we cannot change the starting points of these young lives, we can with love and strength and courage and compassion help to influence their present and futures.”
Creating a new framework for educating and nurturing the hopes, dreams and complex needs of some of Israel's most disadvantaged youth and becoming a model to the world.
The Bialik-Rogozin School is a paradigm of academic excellence, humanitarianism and co-existence for children - Jewish and Arab Israelis - as well as students representing 48 nations, many of whom are new immigrants, children of foreign workers and refugees traumatized by violence. The school underscores the potential of possibility - strengthened by a tenacious belief that all children deserve the basic right of education in environments where they can learn, grow and thrive. In becoming a national and international model for education in a global age, the Bialik-Rogozin School represents all those dedicated to children, achievement and civil, tolerant societies.
