Colegio Hatikva

• Colegio Hatikva's history has proven that the sustainability of the Jewish community of Barcelona relies on the Jewish identity of kids, as a key factor to avoid assimilation. At the same time, the integration of kids and the Jewish institutions on their social lives is critical.

• These two factors are the basis of the mission of the Hatikva School, which is one of the key institutions that guarantees the continuity of the Jewish community in Barcelona.

• The school was created in 1972, and moved to its current facilities in Valldoreix in 2008. Since then, the main goal is to educate kids with a Jewish identity so they are able to act in a responsible and autonomous way, so they can think, explore and communicate following Jewish values.
