Mission 

To serve Jewish (and non-Jewish) activists and organizations by offering a summer program in Berlin that is a combination of a beit midrash, think tank, living laboratory and retreat. Informed by Jewish values, we seek to educate, train and challenge activists (protesters, social entrepreneurs, change-makers, innovators), in our shared fight for democracy, human rights and a healthy and sustainable world. 

Our program brings into dialogue ancient, traditional wisdom and cutting-edge interdisciplinary knowledge, political activism and spiritual awareness, the self and the collective, study and action, Jewish and non-Jewish approaches. We define activism in the widest sense and are particularly interested in identifying and fostering ideas that do not merely patch up existing holes but change systems in order to prevent the problems that challenge humankind and the world in the first place.
