Sha'ar La'Adam – Bab Lil'Insan strives to act toward bridging the gap between the Jewish and Arab communities and creating a real feeling of partnership between the residents of the Galilee, whilst developing empowerment programs for Jewish and Arab children, youth and adults. Sha'ar La'Adam- Bab Lilinsan is an educational and environmental center that first and foremost creates and provides an egalitarian meeting space for discussion and action toward common goals. We hope that meeting and getting to know each other can create friendships between people from various backgrounds, bring about a reduction in prejudice and improve relations between all individuals, regardless of their cultural background. Through dealing with subjects of common interest (such as art, ecology, peace research etc.), the encounters at Sha'ar La'Adam- Bab Lilinsan focus on emphasizing the common identity amongst the participants, rather than on those aspects of identity that separate them from each other. The difference between the various identities is not abolished or denied, but instead serves as a tool for getting to know the "other" narrative.
In addition, we strive to change the existing reality of inequality. Through educational activities aimed at raising civil awareness, and through projects common to institutional, public and private bodies from various different fields, we strive to promote equality of opportunity and of rights.
Sha'ar La'Adam- Bab Lilinsan acts to create initiatives and enterprises primarily in three different areas: art, environment and research.
