Highlights

Our ITF Cities 
 
 
Rahat 
 
Rahat is the first and largest Bedouin city in Israel. The Arab Bedouin of the Negev are a traditionally nomadic people who have become mostly sedentarized in the last 100 years. Founded in the late '70s, Rahat is populated by more than 33 Bedouin tribes from the Negev desert region. Known as "the city of children" with 60% of its population under the age of 18 Rahat and the surrounding Bedouin villages are going through a period of change and modernization with the new generation asking what it means to be Bedouin in the 21st century. While Rahat is a modern city boasting a Bedouin market, bustling commercial center with restaurants and businesses and many mosques, it still retains a uniquely Bedouin feel. 
 
Just 15 minutes from Be'er Sheva, the capital of the Negev and 45 minutes by train from Tel Aviv, Rahat is located at the beginning of the Negev Desert with stunning nature and scenery surrounding it. Rahat is a culturally unique city with a warm and inviting community famous for their hospitality. This unique ITF program is partnered with the Bedouin-Jewish organization A New Dawn in the Negev, an organization dedicated to promoting equality, coexistence and peace among all residents of the Negev, as well as elevating educational standards. 
 
 
 
Nazareth 
 
As the largest Arab city in Israel, Nazareth has a deep history dating back thousands of years. Today, it is a vibrant center of Arab-Israeli life as well as a window into the authentic Middle Eastern spirit. As an ITF Fellow in Nazareth,you'll have the opportunity to explore this vibrant city and its rich history, while serving its population of Arab citizens of Israel. 
 
 
 
Migdal Ha’emek 
 
On the other hand, Migdal Ha’Emek is home to a variety of underserved Jewish populations, including recent immigrants from Ethiopia, the Former Soviet Union, North Africa and South America. The town was founded in the 1950s as a ma'abara–a settlement camp for the Middle Eastern and North African Jewish immigrants who poured into Israel shortly after Independence. As a town whose origins comprise of groups of people looking to build a new life in Israel, Migdal Ha’emek is faced with many societal challenges, which provides ITF fellows with a rewarding opportunity to make a difference.
