Our Projects

Kaleidoscope is an educational approach designed to foster appreciation of diversity and of multiculturalism.

It does so in a variety of programs that are integrated into the school schedule and that are adapted to meet the needs of different age groups, from nursery through high school. Kaleidoscope provides them with an ongoing learning experience that grows with them as do other core curriculum subjects such as reading, science and math.

Founded on research conducted worldwide, the Kaleidoscope process begins with exercises that promote the development of social skills such as self-awareness and respectful communication and continues with interactive social encounters that join participants – students, educators, and parents –  of different cultures – Arab and Jewish, those of the special and general education tracks, religious and secular and new immigrant and native Israeli. These encounters promote an appreciation for difference and understanding between the participants.

To assure Kaleidoscope’s impact, educators are trained to implement the Kaleidoscope approach and parents participate in workshops as well. Furthermore, all activities include reflection and analysis that help participants apply what they have learned to their communities and to varied social situations.
