Alliance Israélite Universelle is active in many schools and communities in Israel through a variety of study programs which promote equal opportunities in education, reduce scholastic gaps, implement Jewish values in the schools and create an educational leadership aspiring for social change based on the Jewish tradition.
The main issues in Israeli society are the growing social gaps, which result in a disparity in the ability to achieve equal opportunity for education, and the growing secular – religious split, which leads to a marginal Jewish identity. Alliance Israélite Universelle attempts to respond to these issues that trouble Israeli society. As part of its heritage, the organization still sees the significance of education and teaching Jewish values, which include: mutual responsibility, social justice, equal opportunities, and leadership.
Alliance Israélite Universelle has a number of educational programs, part of which constitute a network of schools.
