Shiur Acher

Shiur Acher (‘A Different Lesson’) is a non-profit organization, founded in 2002 to promote equality and encourage meaningful civic involvement in the Israeli public school system. Encountering Shiur Acher volunteers from different backgrounds and disciplines enables students to meet potential role models and experience different facets of Israeli society, while exposing them to new areas of interest that may open more paths in their lives and expand their horizons. Shiur Acher promotes mutually-beneficial collaboration between different sectors (private, educational and social), promoting Israeli society as a whole, strengthening the education system and widening the avenues of involvement open to the academy, industry and civil services.
