Leo Baeck Clore Center for Shared Existence

Leo Baeck Clore Center for Shared Existence

Opened in 2003 with the goal of providing the Arab and Jewish residents of Haifa's Ein Hayam neighborhood with new opportunities for economic development and improved community relations through high quality, low cost educational and cultural activities, as well as social services, for all ages. With the support of Leo Baeck Community Center and Clore Center leadership, neighborhood activists developed a Community Garden and the Ein Hayam Trail tourist attraction.

This program is run in participation with the Haifa Municipality.
