Participants learn about the Israeli Hitchadshut Yehudit (Jewish Renaissance) first-hand, by exploring Jewish texts. Through an open and inviting approach, we encourage each individual to make their own meaning and take ownership of their heritage, in ways that are relevant to their lives and to important social issues of today.

TOURS
All of our tours can be combined with study sessions at the BINA Secular Yeshiva
bridging between Jewish sources and the current realities of Israel today.
Popular Tours Include:
The Strangers Among Us: Refugees, Immigrants & Others

2 - 2.5 Hours, Neve Sha'anan & South Tel Aviv

This tour explores the fascinating neighborhood of Neve Sha’anan as a microcosm of Israel. In recent years, Israel has seen a significant rise in non-Jewish immigrants such as migrant workers, asylum-seekers and refugees, presenting new challenges to the Jewish State. With our own eyes we will see how diverse groups have left their impact on Israel and on the neighborhood. 

 
Into the Belly of the Beast: Central Bus Station TLV

1.5 - 2.5 Hours, The New Central Bus Station

This tour presents the entrepreneurial spirit that led to the establishment of Neve Sha’anan and the New Central Bus Station; the vision for success and the reality of failure. It will reveal the unique sub-culture that has evolved in the empty spaces of the station and the communities which it serves. The tour raises questions of social, financial, and racial gaps in the “White City" as well as questions of immigration and gentrification.

 
#LGBTQTLV: The Global Queer Jewish Capital

2 - 2.5 Hours, Downtown Tel Aviv

How did Tel Aviv become Israel’s LGBTQ capital and hub of cosmpolitanism? This tour will explore the modern history of Tel Aviv and how it became intertwined with the queer history of Israel and Tel Aviv. Along the way we will explore the interconnection of religious pluralism, secular Jewish culture, synagogue & state, queerness and broader topics of diversity in Tel Aviv and Israel - and the successes and challenges of pluralism in Tel Aviv today. Includes a processing session in Gan Meir. 

 
MIFGASH (ENCOUNTER)
Authentic Voices

45 min - 1 Hour

We can add a mifgash (encounter) to a tour or learning session offered above with asylum seekers, Jewish residents of south Tel Aviv, or young Israeli and international Jewish activists from one of BINA’s young adult programs.


* Depends on availability
