Yigal Elhanan

Co-Coordinator of "Community in Action" Project

Yigal started working at Sadaka-Reut in September 2017 as co-coordinator in the youth program, Building a Culture of Peace, and since September 2018 has been acting as co-coordinator of the Community in Action program.

Yigal was born and raised in Jerusalem, where he learned for the first time about the many mechanisms of segregation and oppression that are imposed on the people of this country. In Jerusalem, he also saw the violence and experienced the pain which are the inevitable results of this segregation.

The majority of his political activity was done through the Bereaved Palestinian- Israeli Family Forum, where he first learned about the great strength that comes from joint Jewish-Palestinian education and human encounter.
Today, he lives in Tel Aviv and works on completing his BA in Middle Eastern and General History, with the hope to continue and discover times and situations that allowed a life of partnership and solidarity between those we have grown used to seeing living apart.
