The Etty Hillesum Israeli Youth Theatre, Jaffa

The Orenstein project supplies hot meals each day to teenagers ages 15-18 who participate in the theater program. 

This is a special and unique program for teenagers from Jaffa D, which is a very poor neighborhood comprised of people from many cultures: Jews, Arabs and new immigrants from Russia and Ethiopia.

The goal of the program is to create a dialog between teenagers from different backgrounds by enabling them to work together and experience all aspects of theater: producing, acting, directing, designing lighting, costumes and more.

We believe that our support of activities that encourages integration of youth from different cultures and backgrounds will improve the communication and dialogue among the youth in Israel.
