Let's Talk About Peoplehood

The Peoplehood Coalition is diverse group of Israeli civil leaders and organizations committed to promoting the the ideals of Jewish peoplehood in Israel and to strengthening Israel’s connection with world Jewry.

It represents the first-of-its kind Israeli mobilization on this issue. Reut assembled the Coalition in the summer of 2018; it continues to grow in numbers and influence as our activities gain momentum within Israel.

Coalition members are united by a shared conviction that a growing gap between Israel’s aspiration to be the ‘nation state of the Jewish people’ and an emerging reality that continuously challenges this aspiration constitutes a strategic and moral threat to Israel and to the Jewish people. We believe that pervasive blind spots in Israel on this issue pose a central obstacle in this context.

Our Mission

Our mission is to drive bottom-up and top-down change throughout Israeli society, leading the change within the diverse sectors that we influence individually and by working as a collective.


Our initial task is to elevate the currently neglected question of what it means for us, in Israel, to be the nation state of the Jewish people in the 21st Century, to its deserved central place in Israeli public consciousness and in Israeli policy.
