The Van Leer Jerusalem Institute


POB 4070
Jerusalem, 91040

The Van Leer Jerusalem Institute is a leading intellectual center for the interdisciplinary study and discussion of issues related to philosophy, society, culture and education. The Institute gives expression to the wide range of opinions in Israel, and takes particular pride in its role as an incubator and creative home for many of the most important civil society efforts to enhance and deepen Israeli democracy. Founded in 1959 by the Van Leer family from the Netherlands, the Institute and its mission are based on the Van Leers’ vision of Israel as both a homeland for the Jewish people and a democratic society, predicated on justice, fairness and equality for all its residents. The Institute’s work today, still indelibly shaped by the Van Leers' legacy, is designed to enhance ethnic and cultural understanding, ameliorate social tensions, empower civil society players and promote democratic values. Activities range from the sponsorship of domestic and international conferences, symposia and workshops to the publication of periodicals, books and monographs to the initiation of grassroots dialogue and major educational initiatives. The Institute actively promotes pluralist public dialogue by making its intellectual and academic work accessible and by seeking wide input and representation in all of its endeavors.
