Working to build a shared & sustainable democratic society in Israel.
The Citizens’ Accord Forum between Jews and Arabs in Israel (CAF) works to build a shared and sustainable democratic society in Israel. CAF was established in 2001, by then Member of Knesset, Rabbi Michael Melchior who saw the alarming pace at which rifts and lack of cooperation between different sectors of society were growing and threatening the health of Israeli democracy.
CAF's mission is to work to mend those potentially catastrophic rifts by building bridges between groups in conflict, to encourage constructive engagement between them and to promote and empower civil leadership within these groups.
Recognizing that the conflict between Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel poses one of the major obstacles to maintaining a shared society and healthy democracy, CAF’s primary focus is on building a just and equal relationship between Jews and Arabs in Israel and helping them find effective ways to engage with each other around issues ranging from individual and group identity to resource allocation, land rights and more.
