Do you work at the interface with an Arab population in Israel or abroad?

Do you require knowledge about the Arab world in your work?

Curious about what's going on in the Middle East?

Workshops, lectures, courses and consulting that will allow each and every one of you

To get to know the existing social and cultural characteristics and codes.

The meetings include knowledge, experience, enjoyment and a review of the area where we live step by step

Academic and theoretical knowledge

practices from Arab society

Simulations from everyday life

Stories from direct human encounters

Experience in performing group tasks

Acquaintance, knowledge and understanding

Arabic culture and language have cultural codes and ways of doing things that are different from what we are familiar with. Despite the fact that we think we know the Arab culture, as Israelis these cultural codes and ways of conduct are not always familiar.

Which sometimes creates a lack of understanding in the best case, and a lack of success in promoting matters or processes in the worst case.

We are not interested in politics, we do not take a position, we focus on the facts and the need, on getting to know the Arab side about its culture, religion, customs and providing assistance to the bodies that come into contact with the Arab population.


Providing added value

Read between the lines and translate the things for the decision makers so that they can come
for more correct decisions that correspond to the Arab population's understanding of things.


Avoiding basic mistakes

Providing knowledge and tools and adding points of view in everything related to the Arab and Muslim view of life
in general and the space in particular. The differences between the different cultures in Israel and the Middle East region.

Intention and correct conduct

Familiarity with Arab Muslim culture and guidance on the correct conduct before relevant bodies
who come into contact with the Arab space in which they live
