Pears Foundation is a British family foundation rooted in Jewish values. Its work is concerned with positive identity and citizenship. Its approach is based on research and inspired by the urge to ask questions.
In Israel, the Foundation supports programmes promoting Jewish-Arab equality and shared society including AJEEC, Israel Youth Award, Hand in Hand Schools and Yedid.
In 2007 Pears Foundation held a landmark symposium to encourage British Jews to consider how they could engage with issues facing Arab citizens of Israel. Pears Foundation is a founder member of the UK Task Force.
“Our Foundation invests in programmes to support and raise awareness of the challenges facing Arab citizens of Israel. Being part of the Task Force is an exciting development that broadens our range of new partners both nationally and internationally.”
