“A New Way”
Creating a Shared Society in Israel
Berlson prize Laureate
At "A New Way" We believe that building a new way for our society is both
an imperative and a possibility
Israel Unity Award
"A New Way" generates change on a grassroots people to people level, enabling Jews and Arabs to meet directly without mediators, reducing fears, prejudices, alienation, suspicions, and hostility. Replacing them with tolerance, understanding, trust, respect, and a deep-seated commitment to multicultural collaborations and shared citizenship.
"A New Way” operates nationwide, serving an average of 5000 participants every year. "A New Way" works with school students and youth, school principals and teachers, parents and local leaders, municipal workers, and Mayors. "A New Way" works with a big emphasis on communities in the Israeli periphery.
Media and Recommendation
"The desire to abolish the polarization and social rift prevalent in Israel is important to many people, but taking action on the subject is not always a priority [..] "A New Way" facilitates something that seems to have been lost: the ability to conduct open multicultural dialogue between Jews and Arabs in Israeli society. What President Rivlin expressed in his speech on the “Four Tribes” in 2015, the organization’s founder Dr. Tikva Bracha and her team already realized in 1998, when they decided to take action and try to abolish social polarization by creating direct contact and multicultural collaboration that would help to change the problematic status-quo in Jewish-Arab relations".

"A New Way" offers a new way to live our shared life. Our work is all about the people, they are the ones that show us daily that there is indeed a new way.
We invite you to read and get to know their stories a little more. To learn about their shared work, encounters, and the multicultural collaborations they are creating.
