We view serving the community as a privilege. We recognize that we have the unique ability to have a positive impact on our community at large. Therefore, we actively seek and participate in numerous pro bono activities that utilize our professional capabilities for worthy causes.
Educational and social programs
We are involved in various activities of the Unistream Foundation. This foundation focuses on training underprivileged Israeli teens and young adults in entrepreneurship and leadership, in both the business and social sectors. We work together with the foundation’s center in Netanya and serve as mentors in contests throughout the year.
Our firm also works with Young Entrepreneurs Israel, serving as mentors for this organization’s annual closing event.
In addition, Barnea & Co. provides assistance to the IDC Legal Clinic for Startups. Our partners guide law students taking part in the clinic as well as entrepreneurs from underrepresented sectors.
Over the years, our team has taken part in various educational activities, including “Shiyur Acher” (translated as “A Different Lesson”), which aims to empower disadvantaged youth. As part of this project, our firm offers lessons on various legal topics for the students as they hold their own mock trials. Through this partnership, our firm has provided a positive, lasting impact on students from underprivileged neighborhoods.
Our firm places an emphasis on combatting discrimination. For the past two years, we have operated a telephone hotline for parents who encounter discrimination when registering their children at educational institutions. This project is run in conjunction with the NPO “Hakol Chinuch” (“Education is Everything”).
In addition, our firm provides legal assistance to “Budo for Peace,” an Israeli educational NPO that brings children together from areas of conflict in Israel to instill the values of peace, tolerance, and mutual respect through traditional Japanese martial arts training.
Assistance and financial donations to social organizations
Barnea & Co. assists NPOs and organizations engaged in promoting educational and cultural excellence by providing financial donations, including scholarships for law students.
Heseg Innovators Program (HIP)
Our firm works with the Heseg Innovators Program of the HESEG Foundation, a program intended for graduates of the foundation. We assist these graduates in establishing business projects, offering both professional and personal support.
The HESEG Foundation provides scholarships to former lone soldiers who served in the IDF. This money is meant to cover the tuition and living expenses of those former soldiers who wish to remain in Israel to study after having completed their military service.
