TA cultural center celebrates Martin Luther King Day

Israel’s only public Martin Luther King Day commemoration took place Sunday at BINA Secular Yeshiva in Tel Aviv.

The BINA Center for Jewish Identity and Hebrew Culture, established in 1996 as a response to the assassination of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, seeks to “bridge the gap of alienation between secular Israelis and their own Jewish heritage, with an understanding that no one can hold a monopoly on Judaism.”

BINA aims to strengthen Israel as a democratic, pluralistic and just society, through its three key principles of limud (learning), ma’ase (action) emphasizing Judaism as a culture, and the Jewish value of tikun olam (repairing the world).
