This unique Haifa tour offers groups the opportunity to visit the neighborhood of Hadar, where Israelis of different faiths live together.
Israel is a multicultural society with over 20% of the population consisting of minorities of different stripes. The issue is that for the most part, the populations are located in separate neighborhoods, cities, and towns.
Haifa is known as one of only 3 ‘mixed cities’ with over 10% of the population consisting of Muslim and Christian Arabs.

Meet the Community of Hadar
The community “Zeh MiKfar” (From the student village) consists of 80 members who live in the Hadar neighborhood in Haifa. The community was formed in early 2010 by a group of alumni from the ‘student village’ who finished their undergraduate degree and wanted to stay and work in the neighborhood. Over the years, other friends have joined the community, they are involved in a number of different social initiatives in the areas of sustainability, education, gender, infrastructure, and developing community resilience.
The vision of the community is that it will be a place of creation and inspiration for community activists to realize their full potential in the areas of social change, and alternative culture.
