Israel’s mixed cities face some of the country's most complex social and economic challenges, while representing some of the greatest opportunities to strengthen Jewish-Arab community relations. In January, the Ramat Eshkol neighborhood in Lod, one of Israel’s lowest-income neighborhoods, will be the site of a new model for social urban revitalization efforts in Israel, including mixed-income housing, and public schools, facilities and social services catering to a mixed population. Join the Inter-Agency Task Force on Israeli Arab Issues, in partnership with UJA-Federation of New York and Jewish Funders Network, to hear from the project’s local civil society and government leaders, Avital Blonder of JINDAS and Ben Mayust of the Lod Economic Corporation, and renowned American urban revitalization expert Richard Baron about the prospects and scalability of such community development initiatives in Israel.
