Artists, therapists, and cultural activists are strengthening lives in the Home Front and Front line of Israel

“Culture ('Tarbut' in Hebrew) is the creative workshop with which citizens can imagine responses to our common challenges. Sometimes it is a solution, sometimes it is how we discover other solutions."

Rome Charter 2020


The Tarbut Movement (an Israeli registered NGO) was founded over 20 years ago as an organization of social artists, performers, educators, therapists, and cultural advocates living and working in disadvantaged communities throughout Israel.


"Tarbut in Crisis" is our emergency response to the aftermath of the deadly October 7th attack by Hamas. In order to strengthen the home and front lines of Israel, Tarbut provides creative emotional support programs to aid survivors and others affected by the attack and current crisis. Tarbut collects and evaluates inbound requests for assistance and matches those in need with hundreds of artists, therapists, educators, instructors and mental health providers who register on the Tarbut in Crisis platform.


Register with us if you are an artist, therapist, educator, instructor or mental health provider.


Contact us if you are a civilian or soldier in need and we will immediately respond to provide appropriate support free of charge.
