Circles of Justice

Circles of Justice

Social -

 

 

 

Imagine for a moment a State of Israel in which parents can make

enough money to support their families with dignity, rather than

being denied their legally mandated wages; where public spaces are

easily accessible to individuals with disabilities, rather than offering

them a dead end. Imagine a Jewish State worthy of its name.

Bema’aglei Tzedek (“Circles of Justice”) does more than just imagine

a brighter future for Israeli society. It takes concrete action to achieve

its vision of a just Israeli society in accordance with the value of Tzedek

(social justice), as informed and inspired by Jewish tradition over the ages.

Bema’aglei Tzedek was established in 2004 by a group of young

and dynamic social activists who strongly believed that Jewish

tradition had much to contribute to the socioeconomic discourse in

Israeli society.

Bema’aglei Tzedek operates various practical and educational

projects nationwide, which enable the public to change harmful and

illegitimate social norms through their everyday actions.

Our main project is the “social seal” - this certificate is awarded, free

of charge, to businesses which commit to basic social criteria: their

conditions of employment and the accessibility of their business to

people with disabilities. Correspondingly, Bema’aglei Tzedek appeals

to the public to patronize places that have this social seal.

For it’s continued efforts, Bema’aglei Tzedek won Ernst&Young’s

entrepreneur of the year award for 2007-8.
