KOLOT can be described as a Beit Midrash for social action leadership. It partners with Israeli leaders to explore shared Jewish values, empowers them to create their own value-based framework for decision making and challenges them to apply these new tools in their work. Utilizing this new way of thinking, these leaders are changing the way that Israel does business, educates its children, runs an army, and builds a shared society.

Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah is supporting KOLOT’s efforts to develop curricular resources around the topic of berakha – what it means for Jews to be both “blessed” and a “blessing” – that applies this concept to contemporary issues such as wealth and joy in living.
