Lissan is a nonprofit organization that aims to expand communication possibilities between East and West Jerusalem by acknowledging and teaching the two languages spoken in the city: Hebrew and Arabic. We strive to improve the residents’ ability to cope in a bilingual environment, and deal with everyday life situations such as receiving medical services, integrating in the job market and more. Since 2013 we have been running innovative projects that provide conversational skills in both Hebrew and Arabic. Our work enables different target audiences to overcome the language barrier.
