Yavneh is a partnership between the Orthodox Union and World Mizrachi.
The mission of the Orthodox Union is to engage, strengthen and lead the Orthodox Jewish Community, and inspire the greater Jewish community. Each and every day, countless Jewish individuals around the world are positively impacted by the work of the Orthodox Union, with its array of religious, youth, social action, educational, public policy and community development services, programs and activities.
Based in Jerusalem, the Mizrachi World Movement is a global, Torah driven, community focused educational organization committed to Jewish identity and destiny. The Mizrachi World Movement is the umbrella Religious Zionist Organization for many activities both in Israel and around the world, with branches and affiliates across the globe.
Founded in 1902, it was the only religious movement to partner with the Zionist enterprise. Its name Mizrachi is a combination of two Hebrew words, Merkaz Ruchani – meaning a spiritual center. Mizrachi’s role was then and remains with vigor today, is to be a proactive partner and to take personal responsibility in contributing to the collective destiny of Klal Yisrael through a commitment to a holistic and inclusive Torah approach to life.
Whether it is between the spiritual and the secular, the Modern and the Orthodox, the Religious and the Zionist, the new and the old, the individual and the collective, the national and the universal, Israel and the diaspora, Mizrachi sees itself as a bridge to weave together all these values into a wholesome rich spiritual perspective and life. We are driven by our core values of the Torah, Land of Israel, People of Israel, with a commitment to the universal principles of Derech Eretz. The movement is currently led by Rabbi Doron Perez.
