Eretz Acheret is an Israeli NGO comprised of people from different sectors of society with a broad range of backgrounds and personal beliefs. The goal of this website to provide Israeli and Europen Jews with a platform for open discourse and dialogue on all facets of the Israel-Diaspora relationship, as well as the opportunity to express their identity through the written word.
Major aims and objectives of Eretz Acheret
The Eretz Acheret organization and the projects it promotes, the Eretz Acheret Hebrew magazine (in print), web site, study days and more serve as an address for Jews and Israelis who feel that the central issues in the life of the Jewish people are being neglected, and that no public, broad-scoped discourse on these subjects is being held on the proper level. The magazine seeks to restore the value-based debate on questions related to the identity of the Jewish people in Israel, Europe and all over the world to the top of the agenda, and to hold a genuine and egalitarian dialogue among all the parts of the Jewish people. The magazine's editorial board is made up of people that come from all walks of Israeli society.
The main activities of Eretz Acheret:
The Eretz Acheret organization is active on a number of levels to advance its goals:
- The publication of a bimonthly magazine in print since October 2000 named Eretz Acheret. During this time, the magazine has come to be viewed as an important and high-quality magazine, which is independent politically, religiously and in every other way. Each issue focuses on a central theme and is based on in-depth and comprehensive research. Eretz Acheret gives expression to voices and problems in Israeli society that are often shunted to the sidelines by the rating-oriented media, aspiring thereby to contribute to the establishment of a higher quality dialogue, critical to the future of society and the nation.
- The Eretz Acheret organization holds study days following publication of the various issues, which are widely covered by the media and contribute to encouraging discourse on those subjects that we wish to promote.
