Hemda is Tel Aviv’s innovative center for science education that was established in 1991 in cooperation with the Municipality of Tel Aviv-Yafo and the Weizmann Institute. Today, with the help of a top-caliber staff from Israel’s leading universities and research institutes, along with state-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge equipment, Hemda provides first-rate, advanced instruction in physics, chemistry and computational science to the most gifted students from the city’s high schools. Hemda strives to give every gifted student in Tel Aviv-Yafo, regardless of economic background, the opportunity to study science at the highest level possible. Hemda‘s goal is to build the new cadre of scientists for Research & Development (R&D) in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and/or academic institutions that will lead the State of Israel and the world into the future.Read more >
Since its establishment, The Arab Jewish Community Center (AJCC) has worked to bring together Jews, Arabs, and Christians for daily activities and coexistence initiatives. The Center promotes tolerance, understanding, and multiculturalism. Additionally, the AJCC supports the local Yafo community and its many residents from low socio-economic backgrounds. All programs and projects implemented by the Community Center encourage sustainable long-term relationships between Arabs and Jews, build alliances, and assist Yafo’s underprivileged population in lifting themselves from poverty. Through its years of activities the center has created a thriving community; approximately 600-700 people visit the center each day, totaling an average of 3000 each week.Read more >
