Gesher Hinuhi ("Educational Bridge")--Our aspiration is to help build the relationship between parents and their children, connect new immigrant parents with various child-related organizations, and bridge existing gaps between immigrants and their environment of absorption.


Since 2004, " Educational Bridge ", non profit Association, has been active in the fields of education, welfare, and the absorption of immigrants making repatriation .



Our Mission:

We believe that a strong family makes for a strong community, and a strong and empowered community is the base of a strong society. We aim to become the bridging gap between parents and their children, and between immigrants to Israeli society. We strive to build an independent and strong community that empowers individuals to undertake personal and societal responsibilities, and to promote inter-generational dialogue and understanding between the immigrants families themselves as well as between immigrants and native Israelis.



Our Approach:

Since our main goal is to aid the absorption of new immigrants into Israel, we complement Education and Welfare Department services and provide intensive individual and group work with the native language and culture as a framework. With this view, we develop culturally sensitive and unique projects in the fields of education and welfare, which are aimed to create a safety net for the immigrants and to advance the process of their absorption into Israel. In addition, we take an active role in forums and other organizations, on the local and national level, in order to advance the interests of the immigrants community and their absorption in Israel.



Our Specialty:

Since we were once immigrants ourselves and coupled with years of professional experience, we have a deep understanding and familiarity with the region and population of Israel. For years we have successfully run numerous projects reaching a variety of populations, and have built trust and good relations with these intended population groups.



Our Staff:

Educational Bridge has appointed approximately 30 selected experts with advanced degrees in education, social work, and psychology, as well as 50 volunteers.


Our organization was founded by Doctor of Education, Dr. Rachel Shapiro, who today serves as Chairperson of the organization. In 2007, Dr. Shapiro was nominated by the television channel "Israel Plus" for the title of "Person of the Year" in the "Community Service" category.


Our work is supported by private and public funds internationally and inside Israel as well as local authorities and government ministries.
