The alienation of secular Israelis from Jewish culture and study continues to preoccupy the Foundation. A healthy Jewish society depends on all of its communities to engage in the development of its cultural life. Tragically, a significant part of secular Israel has relegated Judaism to the religious. AVI CHAI aspires to encourage Jewish study and literacy among secular Israeli Jews so that they can become active and knowledgeable partners in the shaping of Jewish life in Israel. The Foundation continues to focus on three primary areas of support: (1) encouraging Jewish study programs for secular adults, primarily in informal frameworks; (2) promoting Jewish culture in the media, especially television; and (3) enhancing Jewish studies in the state (non-religious) school system.
