About Hakhel

Hakhel is Hazon’s Jewish Intentional Communities Incubator, founded on the belief in the power of community to create and sustain identity. It works to revitalize Jewish life by building Jewish intentional communities of unaffiliated Jews around the world.

The Incubator provides communities with tailor-made professional support. In parallel, the global network of communities offers diverse opportunities for communities to connect and learn. Hakhel was founded in 2014 and it works in partnership with Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs. More than 140 communities, in 30 different countries, are now part of the network.

On June 2, 2020 Hakhel was awarded the Jerusalem Unity Prize for 2020 in honor of  its relentless work to cultivate emerging Jewish communities all over the world and forge the connection between them and the State of Israel. 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.
