Tozeret Ha'aretz

Tozeret Ha’aretz was established in 2012 to create young communities that will relocate to Israel’s socio-geographic periphery and put down their roots.

The organization coordinates more than 600 students and young families that have taken up residence in nine cities and towns across the country. In recent years, the organization has established over 40 different communities, preschools for the children born to graduates of the program, and dozens of social and business ventures in the towns and cities of operation.

 Today, Tozeret Ha’aretz has spread to cities such as Kiryat Shmona, Tiberias, Pardes Katz (Beney-Brak), Kiryat Malachi, Rahat, Sderot, Netivot, Lod the Nahal-Oz Kibbutz.

Our vision is to promote social justice and social equality in Israel’s most underdeveloped and troubled areas. We believe that the young generation holds the key for social change, and therefore began the enterprise of creating young mission-driven communities in these specific places. Our community members volunteer and by doing so influence the lives of children, adolescents, senior citizens, and thousands of residents in the Jewish and Arab society.


The significant and evident impact made by Tozeret Ha’aretz couldn’t have been accomplished without our partners, both governmental, philanthropic and business oriented. If you share our vision of a strong civic society, join us in changing the future of Israel. Become a partner and help us grow and evolve to fulfill our vision of social change.
