The People Israel Project -The Guide to The Israeli Society

"People Israel" is an online publishing house, which is a comprehensive textual and visual guide to Israeli society. The project was launched based on the belief that by providing current, rich, varied, and reliable information, along with a comprehensive analysis and interpretation of different phenomena, the publishing house would contribute to an in-depth knowledge about the various sectors in Israel, formulating effective public policy and a reduction in prejudices and stereotypes among the Israeli public, to encourage tolerance for others and give legitimacy to the wealth of diversity.

Achievements during 2015:

The comprehensive research on the Israeli Y generation is now ending. To obtain feedback from the public before publication, the study chapters were uploaded to the People Israel Website. In addition, discussions and lectures were held in various organizations. An abbreviated version of the study, adapted to the general public, was published as a book by the Modan publishing house, and became immediately a best seller.

Following a request by the Head of the HR Department of the Israel police force, a sixth-month study of the Y-Generation in the Israeli police force was conducted (in collaboration with the Department of Behavioral Sciences of the police). The results pose many challenges for this large and complex organization.

In March 2015, Haifa University organized a conference on the Israeli food culture in cooperation with the university library and "People Israel". The seminar was followed by a historical photo exhibition, presented in the "Spirit of Israel" gallery.
