Hakhel is the first-of-its-kind Jewish Intentional Communities incubator in North America. More info here!
Hakhel exists to amplify and strengthen new expressions of Jewish community, not only in North America but also, now, in other parts of the Jewish diaspora. We plan to invest, both directly and indirectly, in a wide range of new initiatives and experiments in Jewish community. We want to encourage and nourish greater health and sustainability. Where possible, we hope to learn from some of the remarkable experiments in sustainable and intentional communities that have grown dramatically in
Israel in the last two or three decades.
Hakhel provides three channels of support for this nascent movement:
- We provide matching mini-grants, free professional consulting, and learning trips to Israel for individual communities and community leaders
- We network communities through conferences, peer-learning, trainings and seminars
- We develop content and educational materials to further develop the field and the discourse of Jewish Intentional Communities.
