The Origin of the Idea

Yashar would like such new perspectives to accord with our globalised world which is marked by constant change and complex interdependencies. Yashar opens people’s eyes to other countries and societies in order to reflect the new quality of international ties and the mutual permeation of cultures.

The foundation was initiated and build by the social scientist, Stefanie Horn, who herself lived in Israel for several years. Supported by donors and accompanied by a group of experts, a solid basis was quickly established that carries the activities of the foundation.

THE IDEA BEHIND YASHAR IS TO DEVELOP NEW INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES BETWEEN ISRAEL AND GERMANY BY TAKING A FRESH LOOK AT THE SUBJECT
