Jerusalem Model

Jerusalem Model logoThe Jerusalem Model brings together young social entrepreneurs working toward a better future for all of Jerusalem’s diverse inhabitants. This coalition of bottom-up influencers, now 200+ strong, convenes Jerusalemites from all parts of the city around one common denominator: the conviction that Jerusalem’s diversity is not her fatal flaw, but her most precious asset. Including Palestinian Muslims and Christians, Ultra-Orthodox and secular Jews, Ethiopians, members of the LGBTQ community and others, the Jerusalem Model leverages the distinct strengths of Jerusalem’s activist and civil society. Through conferences, incentive funding, events and other activities, the Jerusalem Model provides professional development to build skills for its members and resilience for the city’s civil society to influence and impact decision makers from the grassroots up.
