Personal Security Index
61% of murders in Israel in 2018 were of Arab citizens – three times higher than their representation in Israel’s population. This is a statistic from the report on "Violence, Crime and Policing in Arab Society" revealing a grim picture of the crisis in Arab communities. The report includes areas of improvement from last year and recommendations for policy change.
Our Story: The Annual Report
The Annual Report provides a concise look at our programs and the rationale behind them. You will get a glimpse of our work on the ground accompanied by pictures and statistics that paint a fuller picture of our initiatives. It's the story of our organization over a one-year period.
Celebrating 30 Years of the Abraham Initiatives
This year, we celebrated our 30th anniversary with hundreds of friends and supporters. This milestone enables us to reflect on our work to promote equality and partnership between Israel's Jewish and Arab citizens, and look forward to the future of building a shared society.
With Arab communities in Israel facing a crisis of crime and violence, Safe Communities works to mediate between Arab community leadership and the institutions tasked with ensuring the safety of all Israeli citizens. Our program focuses on building trust between Arab leadership and the Israeli Police, and on finding solutions to the root causes of this issue.
Challenging the Nation State Law
We are beginning to see the impact of this new legislation which gives exclusive rights of national self determination to the Jewish people, and demotes the status of the Arabic language in Israel. We are working in partnership with other civil society organizations to raise awareness about the law and to fight against it.
