Established over a decade ago, The Citizens’ Accord Forum between Jews and Arabs in Israel (CAF) was founded by then-Member of Knesset, Rabbi Michael Melchior. In the midst of the Second Intifada, violence and conflict served to separate Israel’s Arab and Jewish citizens and the needs for mutual understanding, equality, and democracy became more urgent than ever before.
CAF seeks to create a more democratic and pluralistic Israeli society in which all individuals, regardless of ethnicity, language, religion, gender, and political affiliation, are treated equally by the government and authorities and receive a proportional share of state resources.
CAF works to bridge the socio-economic gaps between Israel's Jewish and Arab citizens. CAF develops and implements community development and political advocacy programs that are concrete models for large-scale social change that can be used all over the State of Israel.
