Established in 1938 as a kindergarten for children fleeing pre-war Europe, the Leo Baeck Education Center is now considered one of Israel’s finest educational institutions. Our K-12 schools provide 2,500 children with a first class education that is rich in humanistic values and embedded within a Progressive Jewish framework.
Leo Baeck works with the city’s most dynamic and mixed neighborhoods. Our main campus, progressive synagogue, Community and Sports Center, as well as our satellite centers, serve more than 35,000 Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Druze and Baha’i community members. Our programming serves Ethiopians and other immigrant populations, at-risk children and youth, families in crisis and individuals with special needs. Leo Baeck’s commitment to Arab-Jewish shared existence is evidenced by the multitude of programs that we sponsor as well as the international peace-building programs in which we participate.
