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
Barnea is involved in various activities of the Education for Excellence organization. This organization works to reduce social gaps by educating children from Israel’s socioeconomic and geographic periphery with a goal toward academic and personal excellence.
Our firm also works with Young Entrepreneurs Israel, serving as mentors during this organization’s annual graduation event.
In addition, the firm provides assistance to the Capital Market Clinic at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya. Our partners guide law students at the clinic in their attempts to find legal solutions to various challenges in financial regulation.
Our firm offers pro bono legal aid services to refugees and asylum seekers. This activity, in cooperation with the Refugee Rights Clinic at Tel Aviv University, focuses on providing legal representation in the individual proceedings of refugees and asylum seekers.
We also provide legal assistance to the Back to Society organization, which works to assist released prisoners in the rehabilitation process by helping them find employment and integrating them back into society.
We also provide legal assistance to Budo for Peace, an Israeli educational association that brings together young people from conflict zones in Israel to promote the values of peace, tolerance, and mutual respect through the study of traditional Japanese martial arts.
In addition, our firm has previously assisted parents who faced discrimination in registering for educational institutions, and for two years helped operate a call center for this purpose. The center was run by Hakol Chinuch.
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.
