Mizrahi Democratic Rainbow

(Hakeshet Hademocratit Hamizrahit)
   A nongovernmental organization that "strives to bring about a meaningful change in Israeli society and implement values of democracy, human rights, social justice, equality and multiculturalism" by challenging the longstanding dominance of Israel's Ashkenazim in four specific fields: land (including its zoning and use), employment and unemployment, education, and coalition building (both with regard to Israeli domestic politics and internationally). Among the movement's leaders are Yossi Yona, a professor of philosophy at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev; Yehuda Shenhav, a sociologist at Tel Aviv University; and Itzhak Saporta, a lecturer in business administration at Tel Aviv University.
