Mission Statement

Friends of Mosaic Communities supports the work of Mosaic Communities in Israel.

MOSAIC COMMUNITIES: Multinational Housing Cooperatives in Israel is a non governmental, non-profit initiative striving to establish new integrated Arab/Jewish communities and strengthen already existing mixed communities throughout the country on the basis of equality of rights to all.

Description

Friends of Mosaic Communities disseminates information about the work of Mosaic Communities in Israel and organizes speaking engagements. The 'Pennies for Peace Campaign' is the current focus of the organization.

The Pennies for Peace campaign distributes small house shaped collection boxes around the country and seeks organizational sponsors such as churches and social action groups. The funds raised helps sustain the organization in Israel.

Mosaic Communities in Israel has it's headquarters in the Old City of Ramleh. The renovation of the five-hundred year-old building is almost complete and the organization's programs are now being moved into the building. These programs are designed to bring Arab and Jewish youth and adults together for arts, computer training, english classes, and circus arts training.

The first new community built by Mosaic Communities will be in the northern town of Harish. A proposal has been submitted to the government and a series of workshops are beginning in early 2006 to develop conceptual guidelines for the new mixed Arab/Jewish community
