Dror Israel is a pioneering educational movement whose mission is to effect meaningful, long-term educational and social change in Israeli society in order to promote solidarity, social activism, democracy and equality. We aim to form the grassroots nucleus of an exemplary society in Israel based on the vision of the prophets of Israel and the founders of Zionism.
Dror Israel emphasizes participation from every sector of Israeli society, including Ethiopian and Russian immigrants, Arab Israelis, Druze and Bedouins, and middle class and working class communities. In the past decade, Dror Israel has established 16 Educators’ kibbutzim in the social and geographic periphery of Israel. There are currently 1,500 young adults living in these kibbutzim, all in their 20s and 30s, who work daily in the organization’s educational, cultural and social activities with over 100,000 children, teens and adults.
Major partners for educational programs include:
• Eight different governmental ministries

• Jewish Federation of Greater Washington
• Jewish Federation of the East Bay
• Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh
