About Hakhel

Founded in 2014, Hakhel is the first and largest global incubator for Jewish intentional communities. Its mission is to spark and support new expressions of Jewish life in the Diaspora by nurturing the growth of intentional communities with mentorship, seed funding and network building.

Hakhel operates in partnership with Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs, which works to strengthen Jewish life in the Diaspora and connection to Israel. While the world is transitioning from hierarchical and centralist structures to networks and shared economies, Hakhel is on the forefront of implementing this spirit of innovation in Jewish life.

The prize was awarded in a ceremony at Israeli President Reuven Rivlin’s residence. Rivlin is well known for his long-standing efforts to bring the different “tribes” of Israeli society together, as well as world Jewry.
