Dear Friends of the Metzilah Center,
The Metzilah Center offers a unique, balanced and non-partisan voice, often missing in the current discourse, and provides a comprehensive articulated analysis from both a Jewish and universal outlook.
Our goal is to address fundamental issues facing Israel and the Jewish people from a Zionist, Jewish and Humanist perspective.
Driving our work is the desire to promote the strength and credibility of Israel as a Jewish and Democratic State
What we do is In-depth analysis, policy recommendations with results – directly with decision makers, promoting public discourse and education.

Please do not hesitate to turn to us with any idea, question or suggestion.Please share this with others who would be interested in Metzilah’s high quality authoritative research and analysis and let us know if you would like to hear Professor Gavison speak.
On behalf of the entire Metzilah Center family, we wish you a Chag Pesach Sameach!
